What kind of breakfast person are you? Smoothie? Granola? Pancake? Last night’s dessert?
For me, I can eat any of the above options and be perfectly satisfied. Although, fresh pancakes are best, just sayin’.
How about some chewy, peanut butter granola? Oh, and add some chocolate chips. Highly recommended: double the batch and make in a 9×13.
Life. Is. Good.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Granola Bars
Source: The Sister’s Café
2 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
1/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I chopped some dark chocolate)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/8 cup honey
2 TB corn syrup or golden syrup (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Put butter, peanut butter, honey and corn syrup (if using) in a small saucepan over low heat until liquid. Add remaining ingredients to a bowl. Pour liquid from saucepan over the dry stuff and mix together until combined. Press into a square 8×8 pan.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes–I did almost 30 minutes but I did double the recipe. Cool for 10 minutes and score into bars.
Let it set completely and then cut into bars. Enjoy!
Notes: The mixture might look a little liquid-y when you take it out of the oven, but don’t worry: it will set. It’s hard to wait, it really is, but wait.
