Ingredients for No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
The first thing you'll want to do is to gather the ingredients you wish to use to make this protein packed snack. Here, we've chosen to use organic granola, dark chocolate chips and peanut butter with wildflower honey.
Use the below measurements if you're wanting to create 4 peanut butter bars:
- 2 cups of organic granola
- 1 cup of peanut butter
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Customize to Your Taste
This recipe is perfect for those who don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen but still want to make something their whole family can enjoy. Customizing this recipe to your family's specific needs is easy. One child doesn't like chocolate chips? Try replacing this ingredient with raisins or dried cranberries.
When we said easy, we meant incredibly easy! All you need to do in order to make these energy boosting bars, is to take all ingredients and mix them together in a medium bowl.
Once all mix-ins have been thoroughly combined, it's time for you to get your hands dirty. Simply mash the granola concoction into either a ball or bar and place on a plate.
We recommend letting the bars sit for 45 minutes to an hour before consuming. This will allow the peanut butter to harden, holding all other ingredients in place.

We encourage you to invite a friend or two to make these bars with you. Adventure begins in the kitchen, and this summer it can continue outdoors with a tasty snack by your side.
