Homemade S'mores Granola Bars

Here are the ingredients I used for my bars.

To start, you’ll toast your shredded coconut in the oven.

You’ll want to toast the coconut until golden brown.

Using my new Frigidaire Gallery® Double Wall Oven has been such a highlight in my kitchen.  I have wanted a double oven ever since my love of cooking started.  Talk about a dream!  It has already saved me so much time.

Some of my favorite features so far are the quick preheat that takes just a few minutes, and the true convection option which circulates hot air throughout the oven for faster and more even baking.  Really excited to test this out on my baking, cooking a whole chicken and our turkey dinner during the Holidays.  I can steam clean the oven in 20 minutes and it’s chemical-free and odor-free. Plus the stainless steel is Smudge Proof™!

Marshmallow bits!  You can find these at your grocery store either by all of the other marshmallows or by the ice cream toppings.  You can also order them on Amazon.  They’re so great in cookie and brownie recipes too.

At the very last minute before transferring, drizzle with a heaping tablespoon more honey and stir in your chocolate!  I used dark chocolate chunks, but any chocolate chip works great.
