Description

These Snickers Granola Bars are simple to make and SO ridiculously delicious! Great as a snack or even for breakfast


Ingredients

Scale
  • ½ cup brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1/3 cup honey*
  • 4 tablespoons butter (dairy-free as desired)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter*
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats*
  • 3/4 cup peanuts, divided
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt for garnish

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper and set it aside. 
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, honey, butter, and coconut oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the butter has melted. 
  3. Add the peanut butter and whisk to combine— the mixture will thicken slightly. 
  4. Once the peanut butter is combined, add the oats and 1/2 cup of peanuts. Stir to combine. 
  5. Transfer the granola to the baking dish and sprinkle over the remaining 1/4 cup of peanuts. 
  6. Press the mixture into the pan, making sure to pack it tightly— you don’t want your granola bars to fall apart! Be careful, the mixture will be hot! 
  7. Transfer the bars to the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours. 
  8. Once the bars have cooled, combine the chocolate and remaining two tablespoons of coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. 
  9. Slice the bars and dip or drizzle the chocolate over them. Transfer the bars to the fridge to set. 
  10. Keep chilled (to prevent the chocolate from melting) and enjoy within 5 days. 

Notes

  • Make sure to use honey— unfortunately this recipe doesn’t work with maple syrup. 
  • I used old fashioned oats because I prefer the texture, but quick cook oats will work too! 
  • I used roasted, salted peanuts but use whatever you have on hand.
