Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Granola Bars


  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 3/4 cup chopped pretzels
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Spray a 8x8 pan lightly with cooking spray.
  • Mix your oats and cereal together in a large bowl.
  • Chop your pretzels up and mix with oats and cereal.
  • In a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, honey and peanut butter on medium high heat until melted. Once it begins to bubble change heat to low and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Remove saucepan from burner and stir in your vanilla.
  • Pour your hot mixture over your oats mixture. Stir well. You want to make sure every single piece of oats and cereal is coated.
  • Pour your mixture into your greased pan and push down with spatula to flatten it.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips over top evenly. Use your spatula to press them down so they are embedded in the bars.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator to set for 1 hour.
  • Cut into granola bar sizes.
  • Enjoy!


If you would like to make a larger batch, use a 9x13 pan and double everything, except use 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips.
Store these in the fridge.
