Successful Together: Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars

Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars

Per request of my loving husband, he wanted a snack bar that was peanut butter chocolate something that was easy to eat and didn't have too much chew ( I will be posting the super chew bar recipe soon!) This has tons of ingredients (compared to my norm) and it smells scarily like a huge peanut butter cookie, so PLEASE :D bake at your own risk. Original Recipe credit goes to How Sweet Eats.

Ingredients:
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup puffed wheat cereal
1 cup crushed pretzels ( I used rods, that's all I had!)
2 tbs ground flax seed
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped (I completely pulverized mine!)
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
100g semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.


In a bowl, combine oats, flour, puffed cereal, pretzels, brown sugar, peanuts, and flaxseed, and stir to combine. Add in peanut butter, and mix with a spoon to break it up and create a “dough,” mixing it in as much as you can for at least 5 minutes. Mix melted butter with vanilla extract and add to dough, then mix. Add in honey and stir to moisten completely. Fold in chocolate chips.


Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with non-stick spray and press the dough into the pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove and let cool completely before cutting – there may be minimal crumbling but they should hold together completely. If you find they are crumbling, stick them in the fridge to chill for a few minutes and try again.


Then, depending on how good or bad you want to be, this makes:
10 servings @ 10 PPV each
12 servings @ 9 PPV each
14 servings @ 7 PPV each
16 Servings @ 6 PPV each <~ Ed sized
20 Servings @ 5 PPV each



Very Yummy. Very Awesome. Very Evil!
