Soft-Baked Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Tammy Brownlow


Great snack for anytime. At first I couldn't decide if I wanted to make oatmeal raisin cookies or peanut butter cookies. I started playing with the recipe and ended up with more of a soft-baked granola bar. I love the texture of the banana chips once baked and they add a great flavor.

With the base recipe you could add your favorites or omit anything you don't care for.

Enjoy (:
