Instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-9-inch pan and set aside.

  2. Mix together the honey, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and remove from heat.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together oats, almonds and Georgia blueberries. Pour the hot liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir carefully until all the ingredients are mixed well.

  4. Pour the granola mixture into the buttered dish. Press the ingredients down tightly into the pan with a buttered piece of parchment or wax paper (so that it won’t stick). Bake in the preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

  5. Cool completely. Cut into 12 to 14 granola bars.

  1. We love granola and love blueberries in our house. What a wonderful combination. I bet they woul dnot last long in our house either. I am going to pin this recipe for later! These would be great for on the go!

    Thank you for linking up to Foodie Friends Friday! Look forward to seeing what you bring next week.

  2. I love the almonds with the blueberries. I’ve never made my own granola bars I bet they are terrific. Thanks for sharing this recipe on foodie friday.

  3. I made them and they taste wonderful but they were not firm…more crumbly. Not sure what I did wrong. Followed recipe to the “t”.

  4. Sorry to hear, Tanya! I’m not sure what happened. This recipe actually came to us through the Georgia Blueberry Commission (http://www.georgiablueberries.org), but I double-checked and their recipe (http://www.georgiablueberries.org/recipes/item/blueberry-granola-bars?category_id=1) is exactly the same. I’m sure you did use the quick-cooking oats, but that would be the only thing I could think of, other than the step of boiling the honey, sugar, butter and cinnamon. Sorry they didn’t stick together well, but at least they tasted good! Perhaps you could crumble them up and put them in yogurt or use as a healthy topping for ice cream?

    Thanks for sharing your feedback, and we’ll definitely look into this further!

  5. My friend and I made them separately and they are not firm at all nor can they be crumbled. Will try to put in freezer otherwise you can eat with a spoon.

  6. Same results for me – didn’t firm up at all. I’m disappointed. Wish I had read the comments before trying these.
