No Bake Chewy Granola Bars
Easy no bake granola bars with honey and peanut butter flavor - easy to customize and quick to whip up!
whole grain cereal
(I used whole grain Cheerios - something similar would work)
(both sweetened and unsweetened work fine)
old fashioned rolled oats
nuts, roughly chopped
(I used Diamond of California Whole Almonds)
creamy peanut butter
Combine cereal, coconut, oats, salt, and chopped nuts in a bowl and stir to combine.
In a small sauce pan combine peanut butter and honey and stir over medium heat until smooth. Stir into your oats mixture. Stir in chocolate chips if using.
Line an 8x8 inch pan with nonstick foil and lightly grease (I used cooking spray but you could also use butter or oil). Press granola mixture into your pan.
Freeze for 20 minutes. Lift foil from the pan and place on a flat clean surface. Cut into bars. Store in airtight container together or individually wrapped in plastic wrap. Store chilled.
*cook time refers to chilling time
