    Default PB Granola bars

    Peanut Butter Granola Bars

    Ingredients
    2 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal
    2 2/3 cups rolled oats
    1/2 cup peanuts
    2/3 cup peanut butter
    2/3 cup oil
    1/2 cup honey
    1/2 cup brown sugar

    Line an 9x13 pan with parchment and spray with oil.

    Toast the oats in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes until slightly golden. Cool. Take 1/3 cup and process in a mini prep until it looks more or less like flour. Combine it in a large bowl with the rice cereal, remaining oatmeal, and peanuts.

    Meanwhile, combine the peanut butter, oil, honey, and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring nearly constantly. Let it boil for a minute. Pour over the oatmeal mixture and stir until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Pour into the prepared pan. Press down very firmly and evenly–this will be important for your bars’ consistency.


    Cool to room temperature. Turn the bars out of a pan onto a cutting board. Carefully cut into bars.

    That is the recipe but I also added in a cups worth mixture of raisins, dried cranberries, mini m&m's and white chocolate chips.

    These things were tha BOMB! I need to make more because they went way too quickly.

    This sounds really good! I was thinking about trying something just a little different and using walnuts instead of peanuts and almond butter instead of peanut butter. One of the kids friends has a peanut allergy but I LOVE to make nuts bars and things for snacks for them all.

    Thanks! I have been collecting good granola bars recipes. I have a lot of problems finding bar recipes that stick together. I didn't have a problem with these. They taste great!
