Peanut Butter Granola Bars
Contributed by: Annelle Williams
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1â�„2 cup white sugar
  • 1â�„2 cup brown sugar
  • 11â�„2 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 1 (15oz.) box of your favorite granola-like cereal (shouldn’t be sweet)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or other nuts
  • 1 cup dried cherries or other dried fruits
  • 11â�„2 cups 60 percent chocolate cacao chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Heat honey and both sugars in a large sauce pan over medium heat. (I used my nonstick wok to mix this, and it worked nicely.) Bring to a boil, stirring. Remove from heat, add peanut butter, and stir until completely combined. Immediately add cereal, pecans and dried cherries and stir to combine.
Pour into parchment lined 9- by 13-inch pan, and spread evenly. Pour chocolate chips evenly over top.
Place in oven just for a minute to let chocolate melt. Remove and smooth chocolate over top with an offset spatula. Set aside and cool completely.
When cool, slice into bars and store in plastic bags.
