No bake peanut butter chocolate chip granola bars in a stack on a white plate.Hey!! It’s Jenn, from Eat Cake For Dinner. How’s it going? What kind of healthy things have you been snacking on? I always like granola bars. I don’t know about you, but I get SO sick of store-bought granola bars. Plus, the last box I bought tasted stale and they weren’t even expired.

Sometimes, it’s so convenient to just grab a box at the store, but homemade granola bars really are so easy to make. You probably already have most of these ingredients on hand and in just a few short minutes,  you can have homemade WAY BETTER than store-bought granola bars.

The flavor possibilities are endless. Today, I was feeling like peanut butter and chocolate chip. I love the combination of all these flavors, they blend together perfectly and leave you with a super delicious, very soft and chewy granola bar. Just how I like them.

  • 1 cup rice krispies cereal
  • 2 Tbl. coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar packed

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Add the peanut butter and vanilla and stir until mixture is smooth. Pour over oat mixture and stir until evenly coated. It might not seem like there is enough liquid, but just keep stirring and it will all come together.
  • Press mixture into a 8"x8" baking pan (or similar size). Top with mini chocolate chips and press down slightly. Allow to set for several hours or until firm. Cut into 10 bars. If taking in lunches, wrap individual bars in plastic wrap.

    Super tasty! I let the bars harden in the fridge and I also added shredded coconut. I often find that homemade granola bars fall apart but these stay together very well.

  2. Can you taste the coconut from the coconut oil? If so, can you think of anything I can substitute with? Thanks! Sounds wonderful.

    1. Usually with coconut oil you can’t taste the coconut in it. It does add more flavor and just a healthier way of making these bars. Hope that helps and you enjoy these bars!! XOXO

  3. This was so tasty! I will definitely be making these again, thank you for posting. I doubled the recipe and it was my go to for the wee ones this week.
