A few weeks ago I made 2 flavors of granola bars. I already shared the cinnamon raisin recipe, so here is the 2nd recipe. This time, I added peanut butter and some mini chocolate chips! The texture is the same as the previous batch- soft and chewy! These were the favorite of the 2 flavors, and I can’t wait to make them again. I have a bag of mini Reese’s pieces that would be wonderful used in place of the mini chocolate chips!
One Year Ago: Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip No-Bake Granola Bars
Makes 12 bars
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups quick oats
1 1/2 cups rice krispie cereal
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided
Line a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray, then set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats and cereal. Set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, peanut butter, and honey. Once the butter has melted, add in the salt. Bring this mixture to a boil while stirring continuously. Once the mixture comes to a boil, remove from the heat and immediately pour over the oat mixture. Stir this until everything is well combined and the oats all look coated in the sugar mixture, then add in 2 tablespoons of the mini chocolate chips. Transfer the granola to the prepared pan and press evenly and firmly. Note: the mixture may be warm, so be careful. Sprinkle the remaining mini chocolate chips over the top and press them into the granola bars. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes, to allow the granola bars to firm up. Remove the pan from the refrigerator, lift the aluminum foil from the pan, and cut the bars using a sharp knife. Enjoy!
