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!
Today, I bring you my all-time favourite homemade granola bars – No-Bake Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Granola Bars.
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!
Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these bars. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

- Rice Krispies
- ground cinnamon (optional, but SO good!)
- chocolate chips
How to make No-Bake Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Granola Bars
To make these granola bars, simply stir together the oats, Rice Krispies, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the peanut butter and honey and heat in 20 second intervals until the peanut butter is runny and can be combined easily with the honey. Stir in the vanilla.
Fold in the oats mixture until evenly coated. You may need to use your hands if the mixture is too crumbly.
Fold in 3/4 cup (130g) of the chocolate chips. Don’t worry if they melt a little against the warm mixture.
Press the mixture firmly into an 8×8-inch baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil (use your hands), then press the remaining chocolate chips on top.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 – 3 hours before cutting into bars.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
