Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 30 min


  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 2 T almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 T vegan chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350. 
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl. 
  3. In a sauce pan, on medium heat, combine the banana, peanut butter, maple syrup and milk. 
  4. Stir until combined. 
  5. Add peanut butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. 
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips
  7. Line a pan with parchment paper. I do this because it is so easy to just lift them out of the pan and cut with a pizza cutter.  I do, however, reuse the same piece of parchment over and over again.  There is no reason to throw it away after one use.  I just store it in the cabinet with the baking pans.
  8. Bake them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. 
  9. Let them cool completely before cutting.


Recipe Notes

I store them in a plastic container separated by parchment paper. They should keep for about two weeks, although mine will not last that long! Enjoy!
