Homemade Granola Bars (PB Chocolate Chip)

Homemade granola bars with peanut butter and chocolate chips are a delicious and nutritious snack that are easy to make at home. These bars are perfect for a quick breakfast on-the-go, a midday pick-me-up, or a satisfying treat after a workout.

To make homemade granola bars, start by combining rolled oats, crispy rice cereal, chopped nuts (such as almonds or peanuts), and chocolate chips in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.

Pour the peanut butter mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is evenly coated. Press the mixture into a greased or lined baking dish, smoothing the top with a spatula or your hands.

Bake the granola bars in a preheated oven until they are golden brown and firm to the touch, about 20-25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let the bars cool completely before cutting them into squares or rectangles.

Once the bars are cooled and cut, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze them for longer storage.

These homemade granola bars are chewy, crunchy, and packed with flavor. The combination of peanut butter and chocolate is always a winner, and the oats and nuts add texture and nutrition. Whether you enjoy them as a snack or a dessert, these granola bars are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth while providing a boost of energy.
