HOMEMADE ROCKY ROAD GRANOLA BARS

Rocky Road Trail Mix is a great on-the-go snack for a hike or camping trip. Another favorite snack to take with you on the road is a granola bar. You can use these same base ingredients to make delicious homemade granola bars. Here are the easy steps: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Then line a square baking pan with parchment paper. 
  2. Add the almonds, teddy Grahams, chocolate chips, and marshmallows to a large mixing bowl, and toss them together until the ingredients are well distributed. 
  3. To bring the ingredients together into bars, you need liquid ingredients. Whisk together ¼ cup maple syrup or honey with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. You could also mix in 2 tablespoons melted creamy or crunchy peanut butter if you want some peanut butter flavor in the bars. 
  4. Pour the sugar mixture over the bar mix-ins. Then stir the mixture together until the nuts and chocolate are all coated in a sticky mixture. 
  5. Add the mixture to the prepared baking sheet, and flatten it into one even layer. 
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes. 
  7. Let them cool to room temperature before slicing and eating the bars.

VARIATIONS ON ROCKY ROAD TRAIL MIX

  • Nuts: Nut trail mixes are wonderfully filling and packed with protein. For some extra nuts in the recipe try adding roasted peanuts, pecans, or cashews along with the almonds. Peanuts are always a favorite addition to trail mix ingredients, and you can experiment with regular peanuts, salted peanuts, honey peanuts, or toffee peanuts.
  • Honey nut cheerios: To get some honey nut flavor in the recipe, you can replace the Teddy Grahams with tasty honey nut cheerios. 
  • Dark chocolate: For a deeper chocolate flavor in the recipe try using dark chocolate chips. You can use dark chocolate chips to replace the chocolate chips already in the recipe or just to go along with them. 
  • M&M Rocky Road Trail Mix: For delicious M&M Rocky Road Trail Mix toss in a cup of M&M candies to go along with the other sweet ingredients.
  • Fruits: This regular trail mix will also taste great with some dried fruit add-ins. Try banana chips, raisins, dried cherries, or cranberries.
