Project Description

Oh my!! I could not believe how delicious these turned out, I had to SHARE!!

Ingredients:

– 1 1/4 cup granola (I used Nutless granola but omitted the Craisins) Pretzels would be good here too
– Pinch of salt
– 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter + 2 tbsp
– 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
– 2 tbsp. honey
– 1 cup dark or semi sweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup peanut butter and coconut oil. Heat for 20 seconds and stir to combine.  Stir in the honey and set aside.  In the bowl of a food processor, add the granola and salt.  Pulse until ground into fine crumbs then add to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine.  Place into an 8 x 8 pan and spread into a thin layer.  Next, use the same bowl and add the 2 tbsp. of peanut butter and chocolate chips.  Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds and then stir.  Heat in 10-second increments until all melted and combined.  Add mixture to the top of the peanut butter layer and spread into a thin layer.  Cover and refrigerate until hardens.  Cut into squares and enjoy!  How easy was that??!!
