Homemade Granola Bars- Second Type

Another ‘pinned’ recipe, that I have now made twice. I like these better than the other Homemade Granola Bars I made.
This recipe was originally posted at Saving with Shellie.


I have made them with both Rice Krispies and Puffed Rice. I think they are better with Rice Krispies.

2 Cups Quick Oats
1 Cup Rice Krispies Cereal
½ Cup Flax Seed
¾ Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
½ Cup Honey
¼ Cup Brown Sugar
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
Mini chocolate chips

Line an 8×8 baking dish with aluminum foil and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine Oats, Rice Krispies Cereal and Flax Seed.
In a microwave safe bowl combine Peanut Butter, Vanilla and Brown Sugar. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Add in Honey.
Using a spatula, combine the peanut butter mixture with the dry ingredients.
Press into the 8×8 baking dish. Press mini chocolate chips into the top. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Cut into small squares or skinny bars. I store them in the refrigerator but the originally poster said that isn’t necessary. They seemed to hold together better that way.

      It is rare. Lol but I’m trying to post recipes from Pinterest that we’ve tried. Just in case they ever disappear from their original spot and therefore also my Pinterest page. 🙂
