Secret Life of Pets Inspired No-Bake Granola Bars Recipe


I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am about the Secret Life of Pets movie! All week, we’ve been sharing our favorite Secret Life of Pets movie quotes and trivia. Today, we’re celebrating the upcoming release with a super simple, healthy and fun movie-inspired treat. We gave a no-bake granola bars recipe a Secret Life of Pets makeover using a bone-shaped cookie cutter. You’re going to love how easy it is to pull this kids’ recipe together!

My son and I already have big plans to go see The Secret Life of Pets when it opens. As someone who is wholly owned by cats and dogs, I’m looking forward to this comedic look at what goes through their minds when their people aren’t around! I think this treat is the perfect healthy snack to eat before going to the theater. That way, we won’t be tempted to load up on too much candy! Ready to check it out?

  1. I thought chocolate and raisins are a no no for dogs. Everything I’ve ever read said they are poisionous to you dogs

  2. I love movie inspired recipes. You are very creative. Your recipes will make for some special memories during our family movie nights!

  3. I have never made granola bars of any kind. I love that they’re no bake though, such a fun way to make the treats.

  4. I was thinking if I can share this one to my dog at home because I was under the impression that I’d make some for my own but I was surprised that it IS intended for our pups, what a laugh! But that tells us that it looks good. I love the themes!

  5. These look awesome! My kids would be all over all of these, they look great and not too difficult to make which I need right now!
