Chewy No Bake Granola Bars

Meaghan @ Cook. Craft. Love
Prep Time 2 hrs 10 mins
Total Time 2 hrs 10 mins


  • 3 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 6 Tbs butter
  • 6 Tbs honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips divided
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit optional


  • In a small saucepan combine butter, honey, brown sugar, and vanilla and heat over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in oats and mix until evenly coated.
  • While still warm stir in half the chocolate chips until well incorporated. They will melt which will help act as extra glue to hold the bars together as they set!
  • Turn mixture into a foil lined 9x9 baking dish and press firmly into the pan until well compacted.
  • Add the rest of the chocolate chips and the dried fruit if using and press to push them down into the surface of the bars.
  • Refrigerate for about 2 hours or until firm, cut, and enjoy!


Store these bars in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week.  Leave them out on the counter for 2-5 minutes before serving for slightly softer bars.
