Granola Bar

I hardly eat or make desserts unless there is a special occasion. The other day, I was invited to a social event where tasting snacks and chatting are main activities. I brought my homemade granola bars for the party.

It might be not a good idea to bring these bars because they started melting under the hot weather. However, I received a lot of compliments about my simple homemade snack. Many people asked me the recipe. I am pleased to share it with you here :)

Ingredients (8x8 inch pan):
3 cups of granola, pumpkin seeds, chopped dry fruits, or nuts, etc
60 g of marshmallows
50 g of unsalted butter
1 tbsp of honey

1. Place the marshmallows and unsalted butter in a bowl and let them melt completely using a microwave.
2. Add the granola and honey in the bowl. Mix them well.
3. Grease a flat pan (I used 8x8 inch pan). Place the mixture in the pan. Lay a wax paper on the top of the mixture and press into the bottom of the pan evenly.
4. Refrigerate it for 15 to 30 minutes. Cut into bars.


  1. How simple and easy! They look great, too. I will definitely have to try this sometime.

  2. Not a bad idea. This granola bars look enticing to me. I would love to have a piece or two.

  3. This is my first time on your blog and I just wanted to say hi! Your granola bars look amazing!! Looking forward to following you! :)

  4. I love Granola bars! They are healthy snacks and very important for people like me who is always on the go. I'm glad that granola bars can be purchased in vending machines, yipee!

  5. Nice recipe, these need to be sold in vending machines!
