Okay, I promised myself I would clean and I actually want to clean so I need to make this quick!
The kids love granola bars but they cost so much when you have 3 or 4 children that really like them. I set out to find a recipe that would work. I had to tweak it a bit, but we love these!!!
Here's the recipe:
Peanut Butter Granola Bars
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. honey
2 T canola oil
1 t. vanilla extract OR 1/2 t. vanilla extract and 1/2 t. almond extract
3-1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 t. salt
2/3 c. pb and chocolate chips
1. In a large bowl, beat the peanut butter, honey,eggs, oil, and vanilla until blended. Combine the oats, brown sugar and salt; add to the peanut butter mixture and mix well. Stir in chips.
2. Transfer to a 9x13 in. baking dish coated with spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-5 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars.
I usually make these with smoothies and it makes a well rounded breakfast meal.
