Chewy S’mores Granola Bars

Homemade S’mores Granola Bars – like a combination of a chewy granola bar and a rice crispy treat!

As a kid, I used to love Quaker Chewy Granola Bars.

Their s’mores flavor was always my hands-down favorite. With mini chocolate chips and gooey marshmallows in each bite, those granola bars would instantly make me forget I was in the school cafeteria and not sitting around a campfire.

This is my homemade version of the classic packaged s’mores bars – with a much shorter and cleaner ingredient list!

If you’re wondering why I’d want to create my own granola bars instead of just buying the ones from the store, the biggest reason is that you get to control the ingredients when you make your own. My version has just a handful of ingredients and can be gluten-free, vegan, and 100% whole-grain, without all the artificial flavors and corn syrup found in the packaged version.
