Homemade Chewy Granola Bar Recipe

Chewy granola bars are a snap to fix with this no-bake homemade granola bar recipe!

You know those pre-packaged, soft, and chewy little granola bars? The kind with the cute little chocolate chips on top but way too many preservatives in the package?

This recipe is just like those but it’s homemade, better for you, and no-bake! It’s so easy! I found this winning recipe on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I can’t wait to play around with it and see what else I can do!
