Peanut Butter Granola Bars


In preparing for a long drive and a week-long camping trip, I wanted to make hearty, nutritious granola bars. This recipe is quick to toss together with ingredients you'll probably have in your cupboard. I chose to use natural peanut butter to continue with the "whole, hearty" theme, but using another form of creamy peanut butter will work fine. 

The perfect combination of crunchiness and chewiness, these are sure to please your family on any occasion.

  1. Ooh yum! These bars looks awesome. My husband eats granola bars every day, but I've always gone with store-bought. I really want to try homemade now!

  2. Definitely saving this recipe! I love PB granola bars and have yet to make them at home. Looks wonderful (as always)!
