I tweaked the original recipe for Chewy Granola Bars since I was in the mood for peanut butter. They turned out delicious!
Chewy Peanut Butter Granola Bars
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup softened peanut butter (I bet crunchy would be good too!)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups oatmeal (doesn't matter if it's quick oats or old fashioned)
1 cup rice krispie cereal
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup Reese's mini Baking chips (optional, but really good!)
In large mixing bowl, combine melted butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, honey and vanilla extract. In separate bowl, combine oatmeal, rice krispie cereal, flour, baking soda and mix well. Add Reese's mini Baking chips and mix well. Pour honey mixture over oatmeal mixture and stir well. It will be very sticky. Spread mixture into a 13x9 baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 300 degrees F for 10 minutes. Remove and cool on the counter. Once it's cool enough to handle, cut them into bars, wrap them in tin foil and store in freezer or fridge.
