Anyone else remember M&M’s® Crispy? Well, they’re back and I ran to the store to grab a bag as soon as I heard the news! My 4 year old sous chef and I decided to turn them into no bake granola bars. We love baking together and this is a fun kid-friendly recipe where he can do most of the steps by himself. His mind was blown that M&M’s® Crispy hadn’t been around for an entire decade and just made a come back. Hopefully they are here to stay because they are so gooood, especially in homemade granola bars! I don’t know why I ever purchased store bought granola bars when they are so easy to make! You’ll have to give this recipe a shot, they’ll be a hit with all ages! 


1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup butter

 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Step 1: Head to Walmart and purchase your ingredients. You can find the larger M&M’s® Crispy bags in the candy/baking aisle or the individual sizes (which only contain 180 calories per serving!) in the checkout aisles.
