Homemade Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Granola Bars
I made these yesterday and they were quick easy and yummy. They use brown sugar and honey so are also a little healthier than some. I had two little girls helping me and they had a lot of fun making them!
2 cups rice crispy cereal (generic will work)
2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup peanuts (I left these out but they were in the original recipe)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Line an 8x8 or 11x9 in pan (smaller will give you thicker bars) with wax paper or foil. Mix cereal, quick oats, and peanuts in a bowl. In a saucepan combine honey, brown sugar, and peanut butter. Stir over medium heat until everything is smoothly combined and peanut butter is slightly melted. Add in vanilla and stir well. Add peanut butter mixture to dry mixture and stir well. Pour into pan and press down. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top and refrigerate 30 minutes. Cut into squares and serve.
