    • If you are looking for a SUPER easy recipe for the kiddos to make (and to enjoy), then look no further.

       

      These are fantastic!  My kids have been asking me for a while to buy them granola bars.  I must say that after reading the ingredients or about 7 different brands I was sorely disappointed.  Even a popular organic brand was loaded with sugar.  So I figured I might as well make my own!

       

      Peanut Butter Granola Bars


      4 cups rolled oats

      1/2 cup honey

      2 tablespoons chia seeds (these are optional, I just love the texture they give)

      1/2 cup peanuts, chopped

      1/2 cup unsweetened coconut

      3/4 cup peanut butter (preferably one withOUT any hydrogenated oils)

      2 TBS ground flax seed


      2 other things I threw in that are optional:

      1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

       

      1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped into little pieces

       


      Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly (it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if the kids wanted to use their hands :).

      Press the mixture into a greased  9 x 13 baking dish.  The harder you press the better the bars will stay together.

      Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
