Granola Snack Bars

Easy Granola Snack Bars

My kids LOVE cereal, but what they love even more than cereal is snacking.

It doesn’t matter what form that snack takes on, if it’s a ‘snack’, they want it. They caught on to my carrot stick “snack” trick fairly quickly, but they are my children and seem to be pretty smart so far. 😉


Using pre-made granola saves me the time and hassle of making my own, and this saves me the mess that is inevitably left behind when 4 elementary aged boys get cereal and milk, and it is much easier to take on-the-go when we need to go and run some errands too. These will also be perfect to send in their lunch boxes to school, or for school snacks.

This is a pretty basic bar recipe. Melted marshmallows, butter, and lots of granola mixed in.


Make sure to compress the bars as much as you can to help hold them together.


I stuck mine in the freezer for a few minutes also to firm them up before I sliced them.


What are your kids favorite snacks? Have you made any homemade versions of them?
