CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA BARS

This is my first attempt at making granola bars.  Did pretty good, if I say so myself.  Considering I typically eat a granola bar every day, I thought maybe I should make a homemade version where I KNOW what goes in it.

This is sweet AND salty. It consists of mainly peanut butter, of course, chopped peanuts, Rice Krispies Cereal and oats.  I threw in a little bit of honey and brown sugar.  And for the oil, I used coconut oil.  I know what you’re thinking….mmmmmm…..right?

I think next time I will throw almonds in the mix.  What would you add differently?

Rock on!

  1. I want to make my own granola bars but I’m scared to. I’m allergic to coconut so I’d have to use something other than coconut oil, I’ll have to look into it. I’d put almonds in mine too.
