Peanut Butter Granola Bars

My Nutella Granola bars were fun and easy to make, and I thought of some ideas on how to improve the granola bar recipe.  Although they were tasty, the Nutella Granola Bars were too dense, so I decided to add some recipe krispies to improve the texture.

Total time: 40 minutes, plus time to cool
Servings: 16

You will need:
2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Wheat Germ
1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
1/2 cup sliced Almonds
1/2 cup Honey
1/3 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon Butter plus more to grease the pan
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup Chunky Low Fat Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Rice Krispies - or Cocoa Krispies

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread out oats, sunflower seeds, almonds, and wheat germ in a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.

Step 2: While the dry ingredients are roasting, combine the honey, brown sugar, butter, salt, and peanut butter in a medium sauce pan. Melt together over medium heat, stirring frequently.

Step 3: Once the dry ingredients have finished roasting, fold the wet ingredient, the dry ingredients, and the rice krispies together.

Step 4: Pour the mixture into a buttered glass baking dish. Baked for 25 minutes at 300 degrees.

Step 5: Remove from the oven and let cool completely. Once cooled, use a sharp serrated knife to cut into individual portions. These can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
