Peanut butter and oats granola bars – no baking!

Today’s creation: Peanut butter and oats granola bars.
Instead of buying I thought I’d make them myself.

They turned out pretty well, the only problem is that I keep going back to the fridge for more.

The benefit of making your own is you decide what you put in them. There are endless combinations and ingredients.

This is what I used:

1/2 cup raw honey

1/2 cup all natural peanut butter

2 cups rolled oats (not the instant kind)

1/3 cup sultana raisins

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

12-15 pre-soaked almonds cut into pieces

2 tbsp flax seeds

1 tsp unsweetened cocoa

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Servings: 8 bars


In a pan melt the honey and peanut butter on medium heat until its smooth.  Set aside.

Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl.

Pour in the honey and peanut butter mixture with the dry ingredients and mix
until everything is blended together.

Place tin foil or parchment paper in a pan and put mixture in the pan.

Press down until it’s in the plan flat and even.

Put in the fridge for at least 2 hours.  I left mine over night.

Once it’s solidified take the paper out of the pan and slice with a sharp knife.

Done and enjoy!
