Healthy No Bake Granola Bars

  • Author: Fork & Beans
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 3 mins
  • Total Time: 13 mins
  • Yield: 12 Granola Bars 1x


  • 2 c. crispy gluten free brown rice cereal
  • 1 1/2 c. rolled oats
  • 1/2 c. refined coconut oil
  • 3/4 c. honey (use brown rice syrup for vegan)
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter (or seed butter for nut free option)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 c. mini nondairy chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Line an 8×8 pan (or a small rectangular pan) with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats and cereal.
  3. Melt the coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Allow to simmer for another 2 minutes, stirring often. Cooking the honey with enough time at this point is what will help keep the granola bars in tact.
  4. Add the nut or seed butter into the saucepan until melted. Remove from heat.
  5. Press firmly into the pan with a small piece of parchment paper to keep from sticking to your fingers.
  6. Allow to cool down for 5 minutes just so your chocolate chips don’t melt when added. Press the chocolate chips into the top of the granola bars.
  7. Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours until set. Slice and enjoy!
