Granola bars are always thought to be so healthy but when you look at what goes into a boxed granola bar you have to be so careful. Lots of them are full of processed ingredients and have really high sugar content. So here's one that I found that is really good and uses ingredients that are a little better for our bodies.

 

 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

 

In a medium sized saucepan, combine
3/4 c. natural peanut butter
1/2 c. honey
2 tbsp. coconut oil


Over medium heat, stir until the mixture reaches a simmer - let simmer 1 minute and remove from heat

 

Add in & stir until combined
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. sea salt

 

Now add
2 1/4 c. oats
1 c. slivered almonds

Stir until every thing is mixed in.

 

Next steps are up to you

 

option 1 - Let cool (I popped mine into the fridge) for about 15 minutes or so)
Remove and add 
mini chocolate chips - as many as you like (1/2 cup or so)

 

option 2 - You can add the chocolate chips in when the mixture is warm but the chips will melt - this is ok too - just, kind of marbles thru the bar.

 

option 3 - sprinkle chocolate chips on top after you've pressed into your pan

 

Press into an 8x8 pan that has been lined with parchment paper - makes it much easier to take the bars out of the pan.

 

Let the bars sit for about an hour or so in the fridge and then cut into bars.

 

Enjoy!
