Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole grain cereal (I used whole grain Cheerios - something similar would work)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (both sweetened and unsweetened work fine)
  • 1 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup nuts, roughly chopped (I used Diamond of California Whole Almonds)
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine cereal, coconut, oats, salt, and chopped nuts in a bowl and stir to combine.
  • In a small sauce pan combine peanut butter and honey and stir over medium heat until smooth. Stir into your oats mixture. Stir in chocolate chips if using.
  • Line an 8x8 inch pan with nonstick foil and lightly grease (I used cooking spray but you could also use butter or oil). Press granola mixture into your pan.
  • Freeze for 20 minutes. Lift foil from the pan and place on a flat clean surface. Cut into bars. Store in airtight container together or individually wrapped in plastic wrap. Store chilled.
