Chewy Protein-Packed Granola Bars

Chewy Protein Packed Peanut Butter Granola Squares

Jessica Braider
These simple bars make a great substitute for store-bought energy bars that are packed with sugar.
Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 15 servings


  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil or use butter
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. rolled oats
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds optional
  • 1/2 cup pepitas pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the honey, peanut butter and oil and stir until melted together.
  • Remove it from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 pan, preferably with straight corners, with nonstick cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
  • Press the mixture into the pan and smooth the top of it. Refrigerate it for at least an hour until it is set.
  • Cut it into 20 squares and serve immediately, store in an air-tight container for up to a week, or freeze for up to 3 months. (We like to store them in the refrigerator or freezer so they stay firmer.)
