Crunchy Granola Bar Recipes

Do you prefer your granola bars more crunchy than chewy?

These nutty crunchy granola bars are packed with wholesome tasty ingredients that are sure to make your smile.

I often keep individually wrapped granola bars in by bag.

Homemade granola bars are the perfect afternoon pick-me-ups. They are so much more satisfying than granola bars from the package.

These crunchy granola bars are easy to make too and only need about 15 minutes to bake!

These tasty granola bars are easy to make and oh so delicious.

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cups mixed sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chopped peanuts, almonds, and cashews
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup honey plus molasses to equal 1/3 cup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Lightly oil the foil/parchment and set aside.
  2. In a heavy dry skillet set over medium heat the oats, stirring often until they are lightly toasted. This should take about 5 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, nuts and seeds, wheat germ and salt.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until everything is combined and moistened.
  5. Dump the nut mixture onto the prepared pan and then shape it into an 8x10 inch rectangle about 1/4-inch thick. Press with slightly damp hands to compress.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  7. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool for about 5 minutes until set and then score into desired size bars with the tines of a fork.
  8. Invert onto a wire rack and peel away the foil/parchment and then break the bars along the score lines.
