So, I am a college student taking a summer class and I am insanely LAZY when it comes to preparing food....especially breakfast.
With a three hour class to go to, I drag myself out of bed and just go to school.....starving . So instead of staring at the refrigerator every morning and shrugging my shoulders...decidin g to starve, I've decided to make something I could just grab and go every morning. GRANOLA BARS! Cheesy

These things are so effin' delicious....that I'm giving you all the recipe!
NOW..this is NOT aka "MY" recipe. I got it online, but do not follow it exactly. I will give the link below.

 
1) GET the ingredients!
Which are: 4 1/2 cups rolled oats
               1 cup all-purpose flour
               1 teaspoon baking soda
               1 teaspoon vanilla extract
               1/2 cup butter, softened
               1/2 cup honey
              1/3 cup packed brown sugar
              AND WHATEVER YOU LIKE!!! I just throw in chocolate chips, raisins, dried cherries, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, dried mango, and chopped walnuts!

2) MIX that stuff up in a bowl!
No, no. You better not lick that damn spoon!


3) PRESS that delicious mix in a pan!
Okay, okay, maybe you can get a lick.  Cheesy I put my mixture in a butter sprayed "glass pan" (?). I hate stuff sticking.


4) BAKE at 325 degrees F for 18-22 minutes.
I do 22 mins of course.
5) TAKE out and let cool for 10 minutes, then cut into bars.
I use a pizza cutter.

6) ENJOY!  Grin
WAIT, don't throw those crumbs away that are left in the pan...make cereal! Just add some milk!  Wink
Hope you love 'em as much as me!

This is the original recipe. I use less butter and don't use as many chocolate chips...I think 2 cups of chocolate chips is insane. That's just me.

You're adorable! haha

I used this exact recipe myself last summer. I can vouch for it's tastiness. I switched to dried tropical fruit instead of chocolate chips, though. And used 1/2c baby bananas in place of half the butter. Yum!

I agree that 2c of chocolate chips for this recipe is insane. It doesn't make that much. You'd mostly be eating chocolate if you put that many chocolate chips in. Not always a bad thing, though. >.>

looks delicious! I know how it is being in university, so I might take your cue and make some of these up for the fall. they'd make great take-along healthy snacks. (so I don't waste my money on the nasty expensive snacks around campus) thanks for posting the recipe!

I'm definitely making these, they sound amazing and I'm pretty lazy about preparing food, too, so having them around seems like an awesome and tasty idea.  (Also, your pictures are the best thing ever.)

Ohhhhhhhh man...you were right.  SOOO GOOD!!  And way easy to top it off.

I made chocolate/peanut butter/banana ones.  Best.  Idea.  Ever.

And now I'm working on a chocolate-covered-cherry batch.  Yum!  Can't wait.  Thanks so much for posting this!  =)
