These crunchy homemade granola bars are full of peanut buttery deliciousness with just a hint of cinnamon. They’re wholesome enough to have for breakfast yet sweet enough to have for dessert, and they make a great anytime, on-the-go snack. The recipe calls for smooth peanut butter, but feel free to use chunky if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with a 10-inch square of parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine peanut butter, maple syrup, and rice syrup. Heat over low just until smooth, whisking constantly with a fork. Cool slightly. Stir in vanilla. Stir in oats, salt, and cinnamon until combined.
  3. Using moist fingers, press mixture into the prepared pan. Bake 18 minutes or until edges are light brown.
  4. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Using the parchment paper, lift out uncut bars. Cut into bars. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.

These were good. I added some raisins to the first batch I made and am adding raisins and chocolate chips to the batch I am making now. I used agave instead of rice syrup.

LOVE this recipe! I couldn’t find rice syrup so I used date syrup and it was great.

These were delicious! Sweet and chewy, will definitely make them again. I could not find rice syrup so just doubled the maple syrup.

Very tasty and simple. I try an flex-egg or change a part of the oats against floar for more keeping together. I will report.
