PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA BARS


¾ to 1 cup packed brown sugar
¾ cup peanut butter
½ cup corn syrup or alternative sweetener like Agave or honey
½ cup melted butter
2 tsp. vanilla
3 ½ cups old fashioned oats
1/3 to ½ cup flax seeds
1 cup walnuts or some other nuts
½ cup raisins or craisins
1 cup chocolate chips if desired—we didn’t desire

Mix first five ingredients together. Add remaining ingredients, mix well and press firmly into a 9x13 inch pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until barely brown around the edges. Cut when granola bars are still warm. Let cool before re-cutting and removing from the pan. Store in airtight container. Try not to eat them all the first two days.

is it crunchy or creamy peanut butter, or does it matter?

Ummm, is that your trivet that that yummy thing is sitting on? Do you need more regular dishes in your life? Perhaps we should go shopping.

Ps you should desire to bring me some of those. That'sall.

I used crunchy peanut butter and I love finding those little peanut bits in the bars. Yum.
