No-Bake Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

adapted from My Kitchen Escapades

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick cooking oats or pulse whole oats in a food processor a bit
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips plus more for topping

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x13-inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together oats, crisp rice cereal, and coconut.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt together coconut oil, peanut butter, and honey. Add salt and bring to a boil. Once boiling, allow to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  4. Pour the coconut oil mixture over the oats mixture and use a rubber spatula to stir everything together - make sure everything is coated. Let cool for a few minutes and then stir in chocolate chips (if you don't allow to cool, all your chocolate chips will melt).
  5. Press mixture into the prepared pan and press additional mini chocolate chips on top. Let set in fridge for about 20 minutes before slicing into bars. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil for storage.
