Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 20 bars

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas ripe and mashed
  • 2 Tbs honey I use Clover honey
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cup oats rolled oats, quick cooking
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup walnut halves/pieces
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries you could also used dried cherries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a bowl microwave peanut butter, honey and vanilla for 30 seconds.
  • In another bowl mash bananas with a fork.
  • Combine bananas and peanut butter mixture and stir, then add in the brown sugar and stir.
  • Next, add in the remaining ingredients and stir to combine, it may be a little hard to stir. I like to fold the ingredients together (folding under and over with a spatula).
  • When everything is mixed together spread it into the prepared baking dish and flatten the top so that it is even.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown, you may need to bake for a few more minutes (I've had to bake these all the way up to 30 minutes one time).
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely, then, using a sharp knife cut into 20 bars.
  • These granola bars store really well in the freezer. Simply individually wrap them in plastic wrap and put in a freezer bag and remove when ready to enjoy, or store in an air tight container in the fridge.
