This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Jerri Graham, creator of the all-natural Nothin But Bar, shows you how to make homemade granola bars.


1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup crispy brown rice cereal
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Sprinkle of sea salt


In a large bowl, stir oats and rice cereal together. Set aside. In a small pot, melt coconut oil, honey and brown sugar together over medium high heat until it comes to a bubble. Reduce the heat and cook 2 minutes. Pour in vanilla and stir. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well to moisten all ingredients. Pour into lightly greased small jelly roll pan {about 12x8x1} and press out to be about 3/4 inch in thickness. {If your pan isn't small enough, pack the mixture into one side. You really want to press them down so they stick together.} Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and a pinch of sea salt. Make sure to press down lightly. Cool on a countertop to room temperature for two hours or until the chocolate chips are set before cutting into bars. Wrap in parchment or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.

The bars are sold for between $3.99 – $4.25.

The 7 oz. cookies are sold for between $4.99 – $6.99.
