Peanut Butter Honey Granola Power Bars (these get the name “power bars” because of the flax and chia goodness)
- 2c. rolled oats
- 1/2c. sesame seeds
- 1/2c. roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
- 1/4c. chia seeds
- 1/2c. ground flaxseed
- 1/2c. honey
- 1/2c. smooth peanut butter
- 2t. vanilla
- 1/2t. salt
Mix oats, seeds, and flaxseed together. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the honey, pb, vanilla, and salt. Heat until mixture is runny. Pour the pb mixture over the dry ingredients. Mix well, making sure all dry ingredients have been incorporated. Press into a greased 8×8 square pan. Bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely (I put mine in the fridge) before cutting.
I can’t say which version is better (see here for the original version!), but I love both. And plan to make both a lot. And also want to freeze both for post-baby.
What ingredients would you add or subtract to these bars to make them your perfect granola bar?
