If you’ve had my Peanut Butter Balls or Peanut Butter Cookies before, you will love these granola bars!
I am in love with these bars. Oh, and my kids love them too! I usually have to make a double batch because 8 bars do not last long in the Kelly house. Now that my kids are back at school I am always looking for snacks for their lunch boxes and after school. These are perfect because they are so easy to make and you don’t even have to turn on the oven! They have honey in them so they may be a little sticky, so just wash your fingers after you eat them (licking them clean is also perfectly acceptable as well).
I used cacao nibs which added a fabulous crunch but you can easily use chocolate chips, dried fruit, peanut butter chips, chia seeds or whatever you’d like. The possibilities are endless. Peanut butter and chocolate together is just about as good as it gets. Add some texture and you’ve got sheer perfection.
- Mix all the ingredients except cacao nibs in a medium bowl thoroughly.
- Add cacao nibs until combined.
- Line a 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
- Spread mixture into pan and smooth out evenly.
- Place into refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to set.
- Cut into 8 bars. ENJOY!
If your bars need a little more honey to hold them together better, go for it. You can also use 100% maple syrup for a vegan alternative.
