The Technique

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, mix oats, rice cereal and salt.

3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together brown sugar, oil, honey, and vanilla.

4. Add honey mixture to oat mixture and stir until honey mixture evenly coats the oat mixture.

5. Stir in chocolate chips.

6. Spray a full size, 2-inch-deep hotel pan with pan spray. Line the bottom with parchment paper.

7. Pour mixture into the hotel pan. Press down firmly with a spatula.

8. Bake granola bars in 325-degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

9. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Cool at room temperature. Best if they can cool overnight before cutting. Once cooled completely, cut bars into 5 rows of 10 for 50 servings.

10. Store in a dry and cool area at room temperature. Discard after 7 days.

11. For a grab and go breakfast, serve each student with 1 granola bar, 1 Dannon Creamy Raspberry or Cherry Yogurt and ½ cup raspberries.

Recipe notes:

  • It is very important to let the bars cool completely before cutting to avoid crumbling.
  • Substitute frozen raspberries. Serve thawed.
  • Customize the granola bar. Add up to 1 cup of any combination of toppings (almonds, cranberries, raisins, shredded coconut, etc).
  • If offer vs. serve is not used, add a Horizon Organic Low fat UHT Milk and ¼ cup of cranberries for a complete breakfast option.
