It’s that time of the year again… when I’m thinking about granola, and brown bag lunches and homemade, healthy snacks.

In my house… it almost always comes back to granola bars.

Similar to our favorite Peanut Butter Granola, but we added a few ingredients and formed it into bars.

Plus… we added chocolate chips. Because isn’t everything better with a little chocolate? I made our granola bars with regular size chocolate chips, because they were on hand… and, we love chocolate. But mini chocolate chips work just as well.

Peanut Butter is a great source of energy-boosting plant-based protein. And these Peanut Butter Granola Bars are a delicious way to enjoy it!
