Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars.
Here… have one of these. I made them just for you.
Okay… and me.
But at least I know how to share.
Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars
[inspired by my little Clif bar addiction]
makes one 9 x 13 pan
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup puffed rice cereal
1 cup crushed salted pretzels
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon honey (agave should work too)
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
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.
I accept compensation in the form of Louboutains, good Chardonnay and Godiva. Oh… and your love.

Jessica, I’ve made these twice. Once exactly as written, once with homemade honey roasted peanut butter. Both were amazing!
Also, subbed coconut oil for butter both times & they were fantastic! Delicious! 💜
Absolutely delish! I used chopped pecans and walnuts instead of peanuts and let out flaxseed. Yum yum!
Made these with all gluten and dairy free ingredients and they turned out wonderful!
Can these be made with gluten-free flour?
