These Peanut Butter Granola Bars No Bake are chewy, not hard. And are absolutely easy to make and much healthier and better than any boxed kind.
It took me a few attempts to figure out what makes them chewy vs hard, and I have come up with this recipe here.
There are plenty of pre-made granola bars on the market today and most contain a bunch of sugar and other fillers.
There are some specialty made kinds, that can cost you upwards of $3 dollars a bar.
But not these, they are healthy and are much less than a fraction of the cost than any store bought kind.
These no sugar bars can be made with just 5 ingredients and take less than 10 minutes to make. And stores well in any type of sealable container that keeps them fresh throughout the week.
With just some good old ingredients of “oatmeal, honey, cocoa powder, walnuts and your favorite peanut butter brand. You two can start making your own granola bars at home.
T trust me they tasty much better than those box kind.
I like to use organic peanut butter with chia seeds in it, but the type you use is completely up to you.
Whipping these up on a lazy Sunday is best because you can have them stored in the fridge for an easy “Quick on the Go” type of breakfast or snack throughout the week.
Notes: You can add any type of nut to these bars. Store covered in the fridge for up two a week.
