Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bar
Light Brown Sugar
Prep time :
0:20
Bake/Cook time :
0:12
Yield :
40 snack bars

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups toasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup Imperial Sugar Light Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter, preferably firm old fashioned
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with plastic food film and set aside.
  3. Scatter oats evenly onto two cookie sheets and place in oven for 12 minutes tossing oats a few times while toasting. Remove from oven and toss in peanuts.
  4. In a pan large enough to hold all ingredients combine butter, honey, brown sugar and salt. Stir to a boil and remove from heat. Stir a few more minutes until sugar is well dissolved. 
  5. Add peanut butter, vanilla extract, toasted oats and peanuts. Stir to combine and add chocolate chips.
  6. Transfer mixture into prepared pan. Cover with additional plastic food wrap and press very hard onto the surface to firmly pack the mixture. This is a vital step to ensure that the granola bars will not fall apart. (You may want to stand on your toes and have your torso weight help with pressing).
  7. Place pan in the refrigerator for 2 hours before cutting.
  8. Lift granola bars out of the pan and cut in desired size. Wrap each or a few together in plastic food wrap. The bars will last at least a week.
