Today, I bring you my all-time favourite homemade granola bars – No-Bake Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Granola Bars!
These granola bars combine some of my favourite ingredients. Oats, Rice Krispies, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. These bars are just divine. You’re going to love them!
What I love about these granola bars is that they are so quick and easy to make. They take about 10 minutes to make, and about 2 hours in the fridge to firm up. You can even leave them in the fridge overnight, ready to cut into bars the next morning to take to school or work!
There’s nothing better than an on-the-go snack that tastes like peanut butter and chocolate that’ll keep you going until lunch. 😉
These are a huge hit with my family, and I’m sure they will be with yours, too. 🙂
I hope you enjoy!
Yield: 8 long bars, or 16 small bars
No-Bake Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Granola Bars
These granola bars are deliciously thick and chewy, loaded with peanut butter flavour, and stuffed full of chocolate chips!
Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil, and set aside.
In a microwaveable bowl, add the peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir and repeat. Remove from the microwave, then stir in the vanilla until smooth. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, Rice Krispies, and cinnamon. Add the peanut butter mixture and fold in until fully combined. Fold in 3/4 cup (130g) of the chocolate chips. Don't worry if your chocolate chips melt a little against the warm mixture!
Press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan, then press the remaining chocolate chips on top. Cover, and chill for 2 hours before removing and cutting into bars.
Leftovers can be individually wrapped in clingfilm or parchment paper, and stored at room temperature for 1 week or in the fridge for 2 weeks. I like to keep them in the fridge so they don't get too soft.
These bars also freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before eating.
