Tasty Tuesday: Chocolate Granola Bars
We love these granola bars. They are so yummy and are at least a pretty healthy snack for something that is sweet. They are also quite versatile. If you don’t have quite the full amount of something you can just play around with amounts- the bars will either just be gooier or a bit more dry. Have fun with them!
Chocolate Granola Bars
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. honey
1/4 c. butter
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
3 tbsp. wheat germ
1 c. filler such as Cheerios, coconut, sunflower seeds, peanuts, Craisins (can split amount between several things)
1/2 c. chocolate chips
Melt peanut butter, honey and butter. Stir in rolled oats, wheat germ, filler item, and 1/4 c. chocolate chips. Cool then stir in remaining 1/4 c. chocolate chips. Pour into a foil lined 8×8 pan and refrigerate. Once cooled, flip the bars out and cut into the size you want. Store refrigerated.
* If you are impatient like I am sometimes I just dump the whole 1/2 c. of chocolate chips in while everything is still warm. They all melt and I just have a more chocolatey, gooey bar!
