Salty Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars

Introduction

Needed a change with lunch, this will give you energy and help with your muscles with all the potassium. This is great bar to take on hikes. These bars are soft and normal recipe calls for 12, but I got 24 of them by cutting the bars to normal brownie size bar. Top these bad boys with peanut butter and you got heaven!! I got this recipe from Family Fresh Cooking. Needed a change with lunch, this will give you energy and help with your muscles with all the potassium. This is great bar to take on hikes.

Ingredients

    2 cups toasted Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
    1/2 cup chopped and toasted Salted Peanuts
    4 mashed Bananas
    1 cup natural Peanut Butter (I used my homemade Peanut Butter)
    1/2 cup chopped Whole Grain or Gluten Free Pretzels (I used Honey Wheat Pretzel twists - crushed in a baggie with a rolling pin)


    optional: Natural Sweetener to taste

Directions

Toast oats and nuts

Preheat the oven to 350˚F with the rack in the middle. Lay peanuts and oats in a 9 x 13″ baking dish in a single layer. Bake for about 10 minutes until lightly toasted and golden brown. Set aside and let cool a bit.

{granola bars}

Keep the oven set to 350˚F. Line the 9 x 13″ baking dish with parchment paper. Heat up peanut butter and mashed bananas in microwave or over the stove and stir well to combine. Let cool a few minutes. In a medium bowl combine the oats, peanuts and banana mixture. Fold in the pretzels. Taste granola and add any sweetener if desired. Spread the mixture evenly into the pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes.

Your granola bars are done when the top is golden brown and the edges are a bit crispy. Let them cool so they are easy to handle, gently transfer to a cutting surface removing parchment paper and cut with a serrated knife or pizza cutter.
