Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

At some point during the school year, the boys started eating their lunch on the way to school or in the middle of the morning then would have no food left for lunch. To remedy that I started making things that could snack on mid morning: granola bars, fruit roll ups, apple chips, cheerio treats, etc. . . Anything to get energy to those hard working brains of theirs. 

from Menu Managed

My friend, Michelle, over at Menu Managed shared the recipe of these fantastic granola bars. Woo hoo! I love it and everyone can eat them, so I make these and Basic Add In Granola Bar every couple of weeks.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. honey
1 egg
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. chocolate chips

Beat peanut butter, honey, egg, oil and vanilla until blended.
Combine oats, brown sugar and salt in a seperate bowl.
Add oat mixture to peanut butter mixture and mix well.
Stir in chips.
Batter should be sticky.

Coat a 9x13" pan with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until edges are light brown.
