Chocolate-Pretzel Granola Bars

Sure, you could keep buying granola bars. But with this seriously simple, sweet-salty recipe, why would you?

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups quick oats
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup creamed honey
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 3/4 cup chopped pretzels
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  • Spray an 8×8-in baking dish lightly with oil. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oats and toast, stirring often, until browned, 4 to 5 min. Set aside.
  • Stir butter, honey and brown sugar in a large saucepan over medium-high. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat and stir in oats, puffed rice, pretzels and flaxseeds until combined.
  • Scrape into prepared dish. Smooth top, then sprinkle with chocolate chips. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 min. Cut into bars. Let stand at room temperature 5 min before serving. Keep bars in a plastic bag in the fridge up to 1 week.
