Everyone wants easy and quick, yet nutritious snacks. I especially want them for Baby Boy as he gets more and more into foods and wanting to eat. Instead of buying granola bars that are chock-full of things I definitely try not to give Baby Boy, I figured I could just make some for us to share.
The results were really amazing. These bars aren’t crunchy, more gooey, yet they taste great and keep well. Plus they’re super easy to make and take only about 10 minutes, plus a bit of refrigerating.
Bring the peanut butter and honey to a light boil, enough to melt the peanut butter. Don’t go far, it doesn’t take long and it will stick or burn to the bottom easily if you’re not careful.
Pour that sticky goodness into the granola and stir until evenly distributed. Add pieces of chocolate (or something else) once you get it pretty well mixed. (note: The chocolate will melt. If you want pieces of chocolate instead, wait a bit before adding in.)
Place the almost finished bars in a pan. I used a 13×9 sheet lined with foil. Parchment paper would probably work best. Leave to cool. (counter or fridge, I opted for the fridge)
Take them out, cut into pieces, separate from foil (or parchment paper) and ENJOY!!
They’re pretty flexible because of the honey, yet also sticky. I simply lifted an edge from the foil and then pulled the foil off section by section. You could try to flip it over and take the foil or parchment paper off that way, too. I’ve eaten them as small bars and torn into smaller pieces for yogurt topping, too. Baby Boy likes to walk around with a piece in his hand to munch on!
