Why are we Making Pretzel Granola Bars?

You can just pick up a box of these at the store right? And pretty Cheaply. At least I thought so, but it seems like granola bars are getting more and more expensive. And these were so easy to make that I may have changed my mind about buying them. And good too. Bonus, you probably have this stuff sitting in your pantry, so if it’s getting late and you want to have a couple pretzel granola bars to pack for an epic bike ride in the morning, you’ll be covered.

Summer is Nearly Here!

Is it just me, or is there a white sand beach with crystal clear waves calling out because it seriously needs a beach chair and a mai tai in it these days? I think it has a lot to do with the end of school and summer vacation season kicking off… you know, even though I don’t have kids.

Speaking of not having kids…. the puppy has been hilarious lately. We were giddy with how docile and mellow he was. Haha! Tricked us. His newest phase is eating frogs… It’s gross. It doesn’t end well (for the dog or the frog) and we feel horrible about it. This week, our puppy is in the lead for worst pup. Time for everyone else to step up the game.

We’ve recently discovered that the better you get at mountain biking the longer your rides become. The longer they become, the more you are running around later in the day smelling of all things gross from the woods trying to shove sweet potatoes in the cart and get through the Sunday afternoon market madhouse to get back to previously mentioned pup to see what else he decided to nibble on. Yep, the moment you know you are into it. Walking around the market in mud covered spanx smelling like horse poo not giving a hoot because well, what you just did was pretty rockin.

Mainly because you really want to get home to edit the adorable photos you snapped Friday night! Because you know I have gone full on legit with this whole picture taking thing? Oh, no.. I guess I should post about that. (don’t worry, I am toootally going to be posting about that).

Back to the Granola Bars!

In the mean time, check out these amazing chocolate pretzel granola bars. I can’t have them right now because of the uber diet Handsome and I are on… We will talk about that later. But I think you should make them anyway. Devour them. Then make another batch and devour them for me.

  1. Mmm, I’ll take all the granola bars. I’m keeping a list of things to eat after my vacation and these are going on it.

  2. You’re evil to yourself for making something like this while on that diet (assuming it’s the one Steph did and the cleanse that I did). I don’t think I could handle doing the entire thing while blogging. It’d kill me to not eat all that stuff.

  3. So these granola bars have all my favorite things in them. Namely sweet and salty. YES.

  4. I love granola bars, especially when they have some good stuff but a few naughty things too! Totally a fun treat.

    Your puppy stories crack me up. At least the cake eating phase is over, right??

    Hi! I was wondering if you ever had any issues with crumbling? I followed the recipe completely however when I made these bars by the time I cut into them, they crumbled into loose granola. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    1. Sometimes mine falls apart too – other days no problem. When its just not sticking, I add a little more honey to the mix to see if I can bring it together.

    2. They shouldn’t crumble. “Add a little more honey” is not a solution. the missing element here is heat. These should be baked. I used Ree Drummonds recipe after reading this. My bars came out glossy and firm but chewy even after adding all kinds of crazy things to it.

  6. Awesome recipe. I did some changes and because didn’t have all ingredients. Instead of rice cereal I added 1 cup of almonds, and added some naple syroup. I’m in love!
