My mother-in-law sent me some delish power balls the other day while my hubs was gone on a mission. I accidentally ate them all before he came home so he didn't get to try any, whoops! They were just such a perfect on-the-go treat that I could grab whenever I knew I'd be hungry but didn't have time to sit down to a meal. So I grabbed the recipe for those power balls and adapted them into a granola bar that I made with SNICKERS®. Since we've been traveling a ton lately, I made a bunch of these to keep in my freezer and grab whenever I know I'll need an energy pick-me-up.

The SNICKERS® Almond and Peanut Butter variations are really yummy and I used both in this recipe. I grabbed the individual bars at Walgreens but I also saw fun-size bags with all the variations at my local store FYI. And another note: I tried making these with peanut butter instead of honey but unfortunately they came out too crumbly; I think the honey just sticks better.

Snickers Power Granola Bars
Makes about 12 bars

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup Snickers Almond or Peanut Butter, chopped


Line a quarter jelly roll pan or 8x8 in. square pan with aluminum foil.

Combine the brown sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and honey in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut, and chopped Snickers. Add the liquid mixture and stir well. Pour into your pan evenly and press down firmly. I used the bottom of a mini loaf pan and took a good 5 minutes to press this down, you want it to be as tight as possible. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 

Gently use the aluminum foil to pull the bars out of the pan and place onto a cutting board. Cut into rectangles and enjoy.

  3. These bars look absolutely delicious! I'm definitely going to be making them!


    1. Thanks Paige! I honestly liked the recipe as it was but the balls looked like brown cookie dough, and it invited certain comparisons that I just couldn't handle lol. So it makes a delicious granola bar too, if a bit crumbly.

  4. Miam miam, ça a l'air très bon! (it looks so good)

    1. Haha thanks! I have been trying to remember my French lately because my sis-in-law sent me some chocolate from Paris and all of the descriptions are of course in French!

  5. nom nom nom! These look and sound delicious! I've made granola, but not bars! I should definitely try this. :) XO -Alexandra

    1. Well, my peanut butter version basically turned into granola anyways haha

  6. You know, this recipe remember an Italian cake that we called "Sbrisolona" and that is very similar and I think also in the taste. It's very energetic thanks to the cereals and choco. If you wnat the exact recipe to proof, tell me, and I will say from my grammy.

    1. That's so interesting, I can't imagine a cake with flax seed and chia seeds! I am going to look it up now.
