These bars are so delicious it's hard to have just one. Bars are so expensive now-a-days and the most of the ingredients listed on the package I don't even know how to pronounce, so I decided to come up with my own recipe so I know what kind of ingredients I am feeding my family.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

  • Place the oats, almonds, walnuts, and soy nuts into a food processor. Pulse until finely ground; pour into a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the brown rice cereal, dry milk, wheat germ, raisins, chocolate chips, flax, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

  • Beat the egg whites until frothy in a small bowl; stir in the canola oil, honey, and vanilla extract and pour into the dry mixture. Stir until evenly moistened and press into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the mixture is hot, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the power bar mixture by lifting the foil out of the pan. Allow to cool slightly; remove the foil and cut into bars while still warm. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving. Store in airtight container, or freeze in plastic snack bags.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

These bars are perfect! I was looking for something to imitate a CLIF bar because I am sick of buying them and these may have been even better than the real thing! They are packed with protein and vitamins and minerals with all the nuts and grains. They are very filling as well. I added hemp seeds in with the nut powder for a little extra kick and they kind of overtook the flavor of the rest of the nuts. So I may go lighter on those next time. I also substituted Agave Nectar for the honey because it has a lower glycemic index. I am excited to try out different dried fruits and other sweet things such as peanut butter with this recipe. It is perfect as is though too. Thanks! Read More

These bars are the best homemade granola bars ever. They are chewy and moist but maintain their shape when cut into bars. Packed with healthy ingredients. Only change I made is I m not a chocolate lover so I left the chips out but added more nuts and grains. Didn t have rice krispies on hand so I used a crunchy oat cluster cereal. Other than that these bars are perfect and it s a great idea to place them in baggies for those times you need a quick energy snack. Another idea crumble these up into a container bowl and keep in fridge because it makes a great topping over yogurt and berries. Will definitely make again! Read More

I made these following the recipe exactly and they are excellent. I've tried to make my own also but they don't stay together as well as these. The great taste is a bonus. Good job. Read More

These are excellent! I changed the flavors a bit since I am not a chocolate fan instead using lemon flavored chips (like chocolate chips but lemon:) dried raspberries and pistachios rather than walnuts. The success of this recipe however goes to JDS800 for creating a bar that holds together has great texture and just the right sweetness! Read More
