–        ½ c. chocolate chips

–        ½ c. almonds

–        ½ c. chopped pretzels

–        1/3 c. honey

–        1/3 c. raisins or dried berries

–        1 c. rice puff cereal or old-fashioned oats

–        1 T. flaxseed (optional)

 

Directions:

  1.  Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until evenly coated.
  2. Refrigerate for 2 hours. (This step is important, it makes them easy to shape)
  3. Removes and shape into 1” balls or press into the bottom of a parchment-lined baking pan to make granola bars.

Tips:

Change any of these ingredients to what you like! An example would be replacing or adding chia seeds in addition to flax.

Add ½ T of vanilla extract to tone down the peanut butter flavor.
