Healthy Protein Granola Bars

How awesome is Amy Tinnin from A Cup Full of Sass for writing this guest post for me?!  She has some amazing recipes and I had to give this one a try! Enjoy!

I am in love with these healthy protein granola bars! My kids think they taste like a cookie. Score for me! So much better for you then the store bought kind. And just a tip… these are addicting!

1 cup peanut butter All natural or Organic (Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter)

Directions:

Preheat oven 350 degrees

Roast oats on cookie sheet for 15 minutes. After oats are roasted take out.

Mix all ingredients together ( you may have to use your hands to mix) and spread on cookie sheet. Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Bake for 10 – 12 minutes depending on how you like the granola. I like mine soft and chewy so less time is better for me. Watch the bars because every oven is different. When a light golden color they are most likely finished.

Take out and allow to cool. Then cut and store in a Tupperware container to keep freshness.
