Blueberry Chocolate Chip Granola Bars are a delicious, no-bake recipe. They make a wonderful, energizing snack.
My kids love homemade granola bars. I love that they’re an easy snack to make, and that I get to control the ingredients that go into them. I can make them healthier by adding extra nuts and seeds, or I can make them more decadent by adding chocolate chips.
I love putting dried fruit into our granola bars, like these Blueberry Chocolate Chip Granola Bars. They make such a treat. They aren’t something we have around all the time, but whenever I make them, my kids get so excited!
Do Blueberry Chocolate Chip Granola Bars have to be baked?
Nope! That’s the best part of this recipe. This recipe makes a no-bake granola bar. Just mix up the ingredients, press into a pan, and refrigerate until set.
Do Blueberry Chocolate Chip Granola Bars need to be stored in the refrigerator?
While these granola bars would probably not spoil at room temperature, they would soften. And when they soften, they can be pretty messy. The cold of the fridge helps them keep their shape.
