Peanut Butter Granola Bars

I love snacks!

I'm sure you're not surprised considering my addiction to sugar.  But these peanut butter granola bars consist of wholesome ingredients like unsalted almonds, oats, coconut oil, etc. so I don't feel as bad when I grab one, or two :), for my midday snack!

I also love the simplicity of this "no-bake" recipe! Oh...and they are absolutely delicious too, especially considering the fact that I didn't like granola bars until I made these.  That should tell you something!!!

Simple yet delicious, "no-bake" granola bars.



Prep Time: 10 min | Chill Time: 2 hours - overnight 
Adapted from {Annapolis & Company}




Ingredients
1 cup 100% peanut butter
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 cups oats
1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1 cup unsalted sliced almonds
{or 2 cups of your own combination of nuts and/or dried fruit}
Chocolate chips – to sprinkle on top


Instructions
  • Over low-medium heat, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil.
  • Remove from heat and add oats, seeds, and almonds. Stir well.
  • Press mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish and sprinkle with chocolate chips (while still warm), slightly pressing them into the mixture.
  • Chill for 2 hours (or overnight) in fridge and cut into bars.
Simple yet delicious, "no-bake" granola bars.Note(s)
  • The peanut butter has a tendency to melt so keep refrigerated.
  • The batch I made yielded 12 bars; however, you can cut them as big or small as you prefer.
