No-Bake Chewy Peanut Butter Granola Bars
This protein packed snack is perfect for peanut lovers (contributed by Leanne G. of Pennsylvania).
Mix, stir, and wait is all it takes to whip up this delightfully easy homemade energy bar.
In Leanne's own words:
"Measurements are approximate. They can easily be adjusted as needed. Nuts can also be substituted to taste."
1 heaping cup natural peanut butter (no salt), more as needed
1/2 cup honey, more as needed
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup quick rolled oats
1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup unsalted sliced almonds
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (no salt, no milk)
Mix peanut butter, honey, and sugar in bowl and microwave approximately 15-30 seconds.
Mix all dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips.
Stir in peanut butter mixture.
Combine until moist and evenly coated.
Add the chocolate chips.
Line 9 x 9 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
Using spatula, press the mixture firmly into the baking dish.
Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.
You can then lift the whole granola block onto a cutting board and cut into desired size.
