This Homemade Granola Bars recipe puts the store bought bars to shame. One thing I really love about this recipe is its’ simplicity. I toyed with the idea of adding dried cranberries or even mini chocolate chips but I couldn’t do it. I knew those flavors would interfere with the true flavors of the toasted oats, toasted pecans, and golden raisins.

I’ve been nibbling on these granola bars periodically over the past week. I’ve come to really enjoy having them around my house! They serve as a perfect quick snack, one that’s sweet but not heavy.

Every time I’ve taken a bite out of these homemade granola bars I think about how these taste warm. I’m dead serious! I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s like they’re a fall granola bar. I think of sweater weather, leaves changing colors, reading books by a fireplace. I have no idea where all those thoughts come from, but that’s exactly what I think about as soon as I bite into these granola bars. Which, hey! I’m not complaining! I love fall.

It’s just, the flavors blend so well together! The sweetener in this recipe is honey, brown sugar, and butter. Pair that deliciousness with toasted oats and pecans and you have flavors that are off the charts!

The whole recipe is just a simple masterpiece. That’s straight up the best way to explain it!

I know exactly what you’re thinking. “I don’t have enough time to make homemade granola bars!” While yes, that might be true, I can assure you this granola bar recipe takes only 25 minutes to make. Tops.

I’ll walk you through it.

A stack of 5 breakfast cookies.

With school just around the corner, I thought it’d be a good idea to add a few healthy breakfast options to Salt & Baker. I knew these oatmeal breakfast cookies would be a great addition to everyones recipe repertoire.

If you’re looking for more easy grab and go breakfasts/snacks I have a handful that we LOVE:

This moist vanilla cake makes for the perfect Smash Cake Recipe! And don’t let the title of “Smash Cake” fool you; this cake is perfect for any special occasion.

Time is slipping through my fingers; my son William turned 1 earlier this week. I can’t believe it! I thought it’d be fun to make a smash cake recipe to celebrate his special day. The cake was a huge hit! Everyone loved it.

This has to be the best vanilla cake I’ve ever had. This cake has an ultra fine and velvety texture. One of the first words that came to mind when I took a bite was “soft.” Maybe that’s weird to describe a cake. But the cake was just perfect! Tender, moist, and fluffy. I don’t know about you, but I want all of these requirements in every cake a bite into.

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’ve had a great week so far!

I’ve shared some delicious recipes over the last two weeks: Reeses Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Skillet, Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Kale and Quinoa Salad (with peaches!!), Moist Banana Bread, and Easy Peach Cobbler.

So many good ones! And if you ever make any recipes from my site, I’d love if you came back to comment and leave a review. Myself, and other readers really appreciate it.  Thanks!!

Life

This week has been quite eventful. My youngest turned a year old this week. I made a smash cake (I’m sharing the recipe on Friday)! The cake was absolutely amazing. He loved it! But I have to admit, it’s a bit of an adjustment baking at sea level. I’m used to the high altitude of the Rocky Mountains…

Speaking of sea level, we went to the beach over the weekend. I’ve never had the luxury of living close to a beach before. It’s kind of nice! A little salty air and sand between the toes does a heart and mind good.

Our Sunday activity consisted of making a solar system out of cardboard. Are we crazy? Yeah, a bit. These kinds of projects are saved for the 8th grade when it’s a requirement. But no, Bronson insisted on doing this. My husband was a sain; he did all the measuring and cutting of each planet. Note: the planets were to scale! So earth was like 2 inches in diameter, Jupiter was like 3.5 feet in diameter. And the sun… well, we didn’t have cardboard big enough for the sun (we would have needed 36 ft of cardboard if we wanted it to be to scale). CRAZY huh!?

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Skillet is the perfect way to enjoy s’mores this year! With just 2 ingredients and 15 minutes you’ll have a melty and delicious treat to share with family and friends.

S’mores.

Do you love ’em? I really like s’mores! I’m usually not a big marshmallow lover but when it’s paired with something like chocolate and peanut butter, then I’m all for it; like my classic no-bake cookies. They’re seriously amazing!

Ingredients needed for peanut butter cup s’mores skillet

  1. Miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups – about 33 or so. A 10.5 oz bag will do the trick.
  2. Marshmallows – I use the larger marshmallows, but you can use mini marshmallows if you’d like. Rather than having them in one even layer, you can sort of mound the mini marshmallows overtop of the peanut butter cups.
  3. Graham crackers – for serving, because you need graham crackers for it to be a true s’mores!

Kale and Quinoa Salad (with peaches) has been on repeat at our house this summer. We love the contrast between the fresh peaches and the salty feta cheese, and the differing textures between the crunchy pecans (can make them candied pecans for added sweetness) and soft dried cranberries. With two superfoods being the star of the show, kale and quinoa, this healthy and versatile salad is one you can make all year round!

It goes without saying that loaded salads are something I, and hopefully most people, love.

I really enjoy a good salad with a great protein option and complimentary textures and flavors; a salad that’s easy to make with little prep involved, and one that kids will enjoy eating.

This kale and quinoa salad checks all of those boxes.
