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. 😉

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!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yields 8 long bars, or 16 small bars

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter 125g
  • 1/4 cup honey 90g
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar 50g
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups quick oats 200g
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies 25g
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 175g

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil, and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

Notes

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.

  1. There seriously isn’t anything better than this, Marsha! You and I share a great, GREAT love of peanut butter and chocolate. Totally a match made in heaven. 🙂 Love that this is so quick and easy to make! They look a million times better than store bought! Now if only you could deliver… 😉 Drooling over these like crazy, Marsha! Hope you have an awesome week. Pinning and sharing, of course! xo

    • I’m sorry to hear! I can’t really tell you what went wrong without actually being there to see. These bars hold together very well, and are easy to cut once chilled. You could try chilling them for longer, but 2 hours was perfect for me.
