No-Bake Tropical Granola Bars

Something bright and fresh which is when the idea for tropical granola bars hit me.
The granola bars take 5 minutes to make, 20 minutes to set up, and in under a half hour your snack is ready. No baking necessary and they’re made in the microwave.
Compared to store bought, the bars are far more cost effective and as a bonus you can pronounce all the ingredients.
For the tropical twist I added dried tropical fruit. I found a mix at Trader Joe’s called Tropical Trek that contains candied pineapple, mandarins, mangoes, and coconut.
You can usually find candied pineapple and mango in bulk bins or in the dried fruit aisle of most grocery stores. Use what you can find. Dried apricots would be an easy substitute.
I definitely don’t miss peanut butter or chocolate bars after this refreshing snack.
They’re soft, perfectly chewy, have great texture from the oats and Rice Krispies, and they remind me of Quaker chewy granola bars.
