No Nuts Chewy Granola Bars

Just saw the recipe for these on Facebook and was so stoked to make them! I have edited the original post to fix a few things and improve another.

From WholeLiving these are the Nonuttin' Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten-free quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1 1/4 cups gluten-free crisp-rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup mini gluten-free semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup honey - or less - I find clover honey's taste a bit cloying.


  1. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang on all sides. Set aside.

  2. Place oatmeal and rice cereal in a large bowl; stir to combine. Set aside.

  3. In a medium saucepan, mix together brown sugar, oil, and honey. Place over medium-high heat; bring to a gentle boil. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add to oatmeal mixture; stir until oatmeal mixture is fully coated and well combined.

  4. Evenly pour oatmeal mixture into prepared baking dish; sprinkle with chocolate chips, and stir a bit to mix into place in pan. When mixture is cool enough to touch, which happens quickly, press down to spread and fit in pan.  
     5. Let cool to room temperature. Cut into 16 (1-by-4-inch) bars. 
Granola bars can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week, and frozen up to six months.
