Chocolate Peanut Granola Bars

Chocolate Peanut Granola Bars

  • 1 2/3 cup rolled oats (GF certified)
  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter

Preheat the oven to 350F. Combine oats, flour, nuts, chocolate in a mixing bowl. Melt the butter in a measuring cup and mix in honey and sugar. Combine it with the dry ingredients and then mix in the peanut butter. Grease a 9x9 baking tray. Press the mixture down in the pan firmly. Bake for 25 minutes. Put it in the fridge and let it cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting. Makes 12 bars.

We made these because Marina really just wanted a regular granola bar. Not a protein bar, not an energy bar, just a nice chunk of granola in an easy to eat bar. And oh, do they fit the bill. They’re also infinitely flexible when it comes to the ingredients. While we used one cup each of peanuts and chocolate chips, the important part is that it’s about two cups of delicious stuff. You can substitute in any sort of dried fruit or nuts to get the perfect bar.
