Best Homemade Granola Bars

The Best Homemade Granola Bars are chewy and soft, packed with protein, and an easy-to-make recipe that is way better than store-bought.  My kids love to help make these homemade granola bars and they are perfect for freezing and sending in lunch boxes or for quick after-school snacks!

Are your kids back in school yet this year?  It feels like the summer gets shorter every year.  My kids started 3rd grade and Kindergarten this week and while I thought that would give me more time, I’m still playing catch-up from our busy summer!  It’s been blisteringly hot with temps soaring into the 100’s so that the school has had to cancel outdoor recesses.  I still can’t bring myself to actually cook much.

As part of our back-to-school prep this year, I decided to make homemade granola bars that we could freeze and always have on hand to throw into lunches or grab for snacks before the kids’ after-school activities.  My easy homemade granola recipe is one of the most popular recipes on the blog so I have been meaning to share how to make homemade granola bars for a while now.  And I’m so glad I got around to it because honestly, these are way superior to store-bought chewy granola bars.
