Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Standard

My husband and three year old son love granola bars, and I have been searching for a granola bar that they could both eat. I couldn’t find one in the store that didn’t have high fructose corn syrup, were low in sugar and were still delicious and filling enough for my husband. I decided to try my hand at making homemade ones. I came up with this recipe and it is a big hit.

Ingredients:

4 Tablespoons of butter Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup of Raw Honey

3 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter

1/8 Cup of packed light brown Sugar

2 Cups of Chocolate Delight Granola (Bake to Nature)

1 Cup of Rice Cereal (Rice Crispies)

Handful of mini chocolate chips

Let sit for 20-30 minutes and then turn granola out onto cutting board. Cut in half on way and then cut into granola bars. I got 14 out of my 9×9 pan.

I then wrapped each granola in parchment paper and refrigerated over night.

This recipe filled me up for breakfast and would make an awesome afternoon smack. :) If you try the recipe out let me know what you think.
