Soft and chewy peanut butter chocolate chip granola bars that taste better than store-bought and are so much healthier with just 7 easy ingredients.
* I’ve made this recipe using a regular bowl and a mixer bowl and both work well. I recommend the mixer bowl because the paddle makes distributing the honey and peanut butter a lot easier, but you can always use your hands or a spatula with a regular bowl.
** Getting your hands a little wet before handling the granola keeps the chocolate from melting from your body heat and also keeps more granola mixture in the pan rather than sticking to your hands. You don’t need much water – just stick them under running water and shake off the excess.
*** The consistency of peanut butter will vary depending on what type you used. I used an all-natural peanut butter which contains just peanuts and salt, but if yours has added sugar, the bars may be sweeter. Also natural peanut butter tends to be more oily, so if you’re using a different kind you might need to add the coconut oil as directed in order to have enough moisture for the bars.
