I’m always on the hunt for easy snacks to make that are perfect for grabbing on the go or packing for lunches for work. So naturally, granola bars seem like a fairly obvious snack to make.
And I must say, these granola bars not only curb any sort of peanut butter cravings I have but they are also super healthy!
I also had quite a bit of fun packaging these bars. 🙂
Peanut Butter Granola Bars
Adapted from Five Heart Home
Makes 8-10 granola bars
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 1/2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup flax seed
- 1/2 cup hemp seed
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
In a small/medium sized pot add the peanut butter, agave and coconut oil and cook on medium/low heat until all melted and smooth, stirring occasionally.
Once blended and smooth, remove pot from heat and stir in the oats, flax seed, hemp seed, vanilla extract and cinnamon.
Next, pour the mixture into an 8×8 square baking dish, spreading the mixture evenly around the dish and press down firmly.
Pop in the freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm to the touch.
Once bars are firm enough, slice bars into desired size and store in the fridge.
*I would suggest wrapping each bar in wax paper to keep them from sticking to eachother.*
