Description

Super chewy chocolate peanut butter granola bars. A simple no-bake recipe!


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup crunchy or creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 3/4 cup add-ins (I used raisins and honey roasted peanuts)
  • optional: 3 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Line an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the coconut oil and chocolate chips together until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter and maple syrup. Remove from heat.
  3. Mix in the oats, crispy rice cereal, and add-ins. Press mixture into prepared baking pan. I used the back of a spatula to evenly press. Top with mini chocolate chips if desired.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or freeze for up to one hour. Cut bars into squares. Store bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Notes

  1. Vegan: Use vegan chocolate chips and pure maple syrup to ensure these bars are vegan.
  2. Gluten Free: Use certified gluten free oats and rice crisp cereal to ensure these bars are gluten free.
