Mummy Granola Bars


Mummy Granola Bars

Halloween is next week!  I still have to buy candy to hand out, but I am trying to wait until the absolute last minute to do that.  The last thing I need around here is more temptation.  My 8 year olds costume is now 100% complete, so he is ready.  We just need him to get over this cold.  Gotta love the change in seasons, and everyone getting sick.  He had perfect timing with this cold too.  A 4 day weekend, and his grandparents from Wisconsin are visiting.  Nothing like really sharing the love :)

I shared Ghost Cupcakes with you last week, this time a little bit healthier treat for Halloween.  I love all the cute treats out there made to look like spiders, ghosts, mummies and so much more.  But they are all desserts.  I wanted to do something that was a little better for you.  Thanks to the help of a friend, we came up with the idea of granola bars.  They are the perfect shape to turn into a mummy.  Plus, I kind of have a thing for making my own granola bars.

Mummy Granola Bars

You could use just about any granola bar recipe you like.  If you were really pressed for time, you could even open a couple of store bought granola bars, and drizzle them with white chocolate.  Personally, I like making my own because then I know everything that is in there.  Plus, they are so easy!  This recipe calls for baking the bars, but these chewy no-bake granola bars would work just as well.  I really wish that I was helping out with my son’s Halloween party at school this year, because I think this would be really fun to do with the kids!

    Granola Bars
  • 4 cups rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil (or canola oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Topping
  • White chocolate, melted
  • Candy eyes (made by Wilton)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine oats, flour, brown sugar, chocolate chips and salt. Stir until well combined.
  3. Pour oil, vanilla, and honey over oat mixture. Stir until everything is well coated.
  4. Dump onto prepared baking sheet. Press firmly until about 1 inch thick, or about a 9x13 rectangle.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the bars are dry to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  6. Cut into small bars while still slightly warm.
  7. Once completely cool set them on a wire rack, and drizzle with the melted white chocolate. Place on the eyes immediately, so they stick as the chocolate hardens. Let the chocolate set completely before storing.
  8. Store in an air tight container or individually wrap the bars in wax paper.
