Peanut Butter Granola Squares – No bake. Gluten free. Crunchy. Delicious. Easy. Breakfast, snack, or lunchbox worthy. Make them!
Peanut butter, chocolate, oats, maple syrup…need I say more? Most people love granola bars, but most of the ones you find in the store have some questionable ingredients. These No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Squares are creamy and chewy, with a little crunch for texture and of course are drizzled with chocolate. The best part — they are good for you!!
Better Than Store Bought
These granola squares were based on a previous recipe I made, No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites. These squares have chocolate drizzle on top instead of in the mixture and they have a nice crunch that the previous ones don’t have. Both are absolutely delicious, but I think these new ones are my favorite!
You could even cut these into long rectangles to resemble store bought granola bars, but I think they hold together a bit better in small squares. Store them in the fridge and they will stay firm, yet still be soft and chewy.
Healthy Granola Bars
These babies are loaded with flax and chia seeds, oats and nut butter, which means these bars pack a healthy punch of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, protein and a plethora of vitamins and minerals, yet, you will feel like you are eating dessert! Who doesn’t want that?
I feel good about giving these to my kids for breakfast, lunch, snack, whenever! I promise they will never guess how healthy they are.
