“These chewy granola bars were adapted from No-Bake Rice Krispies Peanut Butter Granola Bars (Lower-Fat) from Kittencal. My changes were to add coconut, dates, and walnuts. I also used butterscotch chips in place of chocolate chips. You'll see that your own options are endless - just substitute the ingredients that your family prefers!”

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Prepare a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients so they are ready for the hot sugar mixture.
  3. In a sauce pan, make sugar mixture. Combine brown sugar, corn syrup and optional molasses; bring to a full boil and allow to boil 1 MINUTE. Turn down heat and add peanut butter and vanilla, stirring quickly until smooth.
  4. Work quickly - pour the hot sugar mixture over dry ingredients and use two wooden spoons to thoroughly combine ingredients. Stir in chips LAST so they don't melt in the hot mixture.
  5. Press mixture very firmly into prepared pan. Keep pressing down until your bars are dense in order to keep them from crumbling later when you cut them.
  6. When cool, use a sharp knife to cut into 18 bars (1 cut lengthwise and then 9 cuts across).
