How to make No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • unsalted butter
  • honey
  • light brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • porridge oats
  • Rice Krispies
  • ground cinnamon
  • chocolate chips

To make these no-bake granola bars, simply add the butter, honey, and brown sugar to a microwave-safe bowl, then microwave until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the microwave, and stir in the vanilla.

In a separate large bowl, mix together the oats, Rice Krispies, and cinnamon. Add the butter mixture and fold in until fully combined. You may need to use your hands if the mixture is a little too crumbly.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly – about 5 minutes, then fold in 3/4 cup (130g) of the chocolate chips.

Press the mixture firmly into an 8×8-inch baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil, then press the remaining chocolate chips on top. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 – 3 hours before cutting into bars.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

These No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars are:

  • so quick and easy to make
  • deliciously soft and chewy
  • LOADED with flavour
  • perfect for lunch boxes and snacks!

How long will these no-bake granola bars last? These bars can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Can I freeze these granola bars? Yep! They also freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before eating.
