CHEWY PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA BARS

 

  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 24
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 C rolled oats
  • 1/2 C wheat germ
  • 1/4 C flax seed
  • 1/3 C brown sugar
  • 1 C whole wheat or all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 C natural peanut butter (we prefer chunky!)
  • milk or water in case dough is too dry
  • 1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease a 9x13 pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, wheat germ, flax seed, flour, brown sugar and salt.
  • Add the honey, egg, and peanut butter.
  • Mix until well-blended.
  • If dough is too dry, add a little milk or water a tablespoon at a time. The dryness depends on the moistness of your natural peanut butter.
  • Pat dough evenly into pan.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until edges start to turn golden.
  • Let the bars cool for 5-10 minutes and then cut while still warm.
  • Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Notes

My husband and I love peanut butter! We also eat a lot of granola bars because they are the perfect convenience food. I decided to create a healthy, protein-packed recipe that would include our favorite ingredient and would be quick to make (since I make a lot of them!).
