Delightful Homemade Chewy Granola Bars Recipe











Whip up a batch of these deliciously chewy granola bars, packed with nutrients and perfect for breakfast or a snack. They're easy to make and utterly satisfying!


Step 1: Preparation

Let's start by greasing a 13 x 9 inch baking pan nicely, so our delicious bars won't stick. In a large, welcoming bowl, let's combine the rich brown sugar, creamy peanut butter, sweet corn syrup, butter just melting in your imagination, and a splash of vanilla extract; blend all of these until they're well acquainted. Now, it's time to invite the remaining ingredients to the party - sprinkle in the wheat germ, sesame seeds, and the ever-so delightful chocolate chips. Stir until everything is nicely mixed together, then press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Think of it as tucking them in for a short bake.
Pro Tip: Press the mixture firmly to ensure bars hold together well.

Step 2: Baking

Now, let's heat the oven to 350 degrees and give these bars a nice little bake for 15-20 minutes or just until they're light golden brown. Think of it like giving them a sun-kiss for a perfect tan. Once they're ready, let them cool completely in their pan - patience, my dear, as hard as it is! This cooling is the secret to that chewy texture we all love. When they're cool, cut them into bars. It's like unwrapping a gift, each cut revealing the chewy, chocolatey goodness within. Store them tightly covered, if they last long enough to need storing!
Pro Tip: Allowing the bars to cool completely makes slicing easier.
