We eat a lot of granola in my house. Sometimes we make it and other times we buy it.

I find that we go through it quite a bit and Quaker® Simply Granola is my go-to option for feeding a crowd because there is plenty to go around.

For the holidays, I love to add it to my cookies, pancakes and brownies.

It adds just the best crunch and flavor to anything you make.

Granola Blondie Bars make a great gift

We do a lot of baking during the month of December. It’s a great time to make cookies and brownies and spend time with family.

I also participate in a few cookie exchange parties.  We stick to a some traditional favorites but also enjoy trying new recipes.

And when we’re done we have plenty of baked goods to offer when visiting others over the holidays. It makes a great gift to give that’s from the heart.

Using granola is a great way to get a little extra something special in a sweet holiday treat.

These granola blondie bars are easy to make and perfect for holiday baking with the kids because they can help out in the kitchen.

Granola adds crunch to anything you put it in and when my kids are not gobbling it down by the handfuls out of the box, they are adding it to their yogurt for breakfast or sprinkling it on top of a bowl of morning oatmeal.

Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey & Almonds is a great source of fiber with only 9 gram of fat per serving.

I love that it packs a protein punch of 10 grams per cup. It also comes in several other flavors that include nuts and dried fruit.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cup Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey & Almonds
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper. The parchment will allow you to remove the baked blondies from the pan to easily slice into squares.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar and butter until well blended. Add in the eggs and vanilla and continue to beat for another minute. Mix in the flour, baking powder and salt and beat until well combined.
  • Slowly stir in the granola and chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture into the parchment lined pan and use a spoon to evenly spread to the corners.
  • Bake the blondies for 35 minutes or golden brown on top. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool completely. Lift the parchment from the pan and cut the blondies into squares.

  • What an easy quick way to make these by using the store-bought granola! I love homemade, but don’t usually have the time for it! I’ll be pinning this to try!

  • Wow! I can’t get over how beautiful these are! I will have to work on making these gluten free. They look that delicious!

    • Yes Shannon I hope you do. They are so easy to make and a little healthy something tucked inside. Thanks for visiting.

  • Great recipe but the ingredients say baking powder and directions say baking soda. I know there is a difference but I’m not smart enough to know the difference.

  • Re: Granola Blondie Bars with Simply Granola – Is 2-1/2 TABLESPOONS baking powder the correct amount?!? Thank you.

    • Great catch Alicia…you’ll want to add 2 1/2 Teaspoons of baking powder in this recipe. Thanks for reaching out.
