No-Bake Granola Bars

These granola bars, which could also be known as Glorified Rice Krispy Treats, are a favorite of Jeff. It's too bad he's not around to have any this week.No-Bake Granola Bars

1/4 cup butter or margarine or oil or combination
6 cups mini marshmallows
2-4 Tablespoons honey
2-4 Tablespoons peanut butter
2 1/2 cups regular oats
2 1/4 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup coconut, optional (or dried fruit)
1/2 cup crushed peanuts (or other nuts)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Melt butter and marshmallows together. Stir in everything else, except the chocolate chips. (You could, but they'll melt.) Press into lightly greased 9x13" pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and press in. Let set for a bit before cutting into rectangles.


  1. Very interesting combo - sounds good! I like no-bake stuff 'cause it's ready so fast! :)

  2. Looks like a great recipe! I bet my boys would like it and so I think I will give it a try!
