2bleu's No-Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bars

"This is a nice healthy low calorie 'big' bar. Perfect for part of breakfast or an afternoon snack. You can rough chop the nuts in a food processor (or place into a Ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush) to make things go faster."

    Excellent! I've been looking for a healthy substitute for store-bought granola bars and I think I've found it. Added flax seed too. Thanks for sharing!

    I always enjoy finding a new recipe for granola bars, & this one fits right in there! Really like the combo of PB & chocolate, along with the dried fruit, & they came together so easily! Definitely a recipe to keep around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in the current ADOPT A TAG event]

    I made these up for my DS who is losing weight and has been spending ridiculous amounts of money on granola bars. For the dried fruit I used raisins, crasins,and dates, and then added in sunflower seeds and flaxseed. These are totally delicious, and we both love them! I love something I can grab on the go, and this is just perfect! I will be making these often along with a few other recipes. Thanks so much for sharing with us Lynnda! Linda
