Chocolate Granola Bars

Written by Malissa

I have a huge sweet tooth, so it's only fitting that my first recipe is a sweet one. The kids and I love these granola bars. Owen doesn't like peanut butter, so his loss is our gain! They are so much better and healthier than the boxed granola bars.


Chocolate Granola Bars

Here's what you need:
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup local honey
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup oats (not quick oats)
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1/2 cup chocolate chips (Mini work best, but it doesn’t really matter.)

What to do:
1. Melt the butter, peanut butter and honey in a pot over medium to low heat, stirring constantly.  Turn off the burner when melted.
2. Pour in the cup of oats, chocolate chips,and the wheat germ. Stir til combined.
3. Pour into foil-lined 8 X 8 pan and stick in the fridge.
4. Once cooled, flip out the bars onto cutting board and cut to the size you like.
5. Enjoy!
