More About This Recipe
Cracking open the books always seems to give me the munchies.

Back to school means the return of homework and projects. The best part of working on homework has to be study breaks. Study breaks are awesome because you can recharge and then really tackle those assignments. Granola bars make a great study break snack and it's easy to make your own.

Apple Crunch Granola Bars are fun to make (super easy and quick) and delicious to eat. They've got a lot of yummy ingredients, such as apples and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, packed into these bars.

Grab your ingredients.

Put the butter, honey and dark brown sugar in a pot.

Bring that to a boil and then pour in the vanilla extract. Let cook for two minutes more. While that cooks, cut half of the apple into cubes. Put the oats and rice cereal in a large bowl.

When the honey butter mixture is done, pour the mixture over the oats and rice cereal.

Add the apples.

Mix it all together and press onto a jelly roll pan.

Gently press the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal on top. Pop in the fridge for 30 minutes before cutting and serving!
