PB & Choc Chip Granola Bars

Hi, guys!

I have to say I am really enjoying this new #ToddlerTreats series of mine, I have so much different, fun and most importantly easy to make recipes for you & your little ones! If this week is your first week spotting this little series then don’t fret, you can catch up on my previous #ToddlerTreats here.

This week I am excited to share my latest easy-peasy toddler recipe & judging by how much my older kids and partner loved these, I’m inclined to say they’re a for-all-the-family sort of treat!

First of all, this is a no-bake recipe, making it a much easier snack to put together and the ingredients you’ll need is:-

– 1 1/2 cups of Oats
– 2 cups of rice Krispies
– 1/2 cup of Brown sugar
– 1/2 cup of honey
– 1/2 cup of peanut butter
– 1 tsp vanilla essence
– 1/4 cup of chocolate chips

How to make:

First of all, you need to bring to the boil, the brown sugar and the honey just enough so that the granules of the sugar have dissolved. Once that has happened then you take it off the heat, add in your peanut butter and stir that in with your syrup, then leave it to cool for a few minutes.

Once it’s been cooled a little, you’ll notice it has stiffened, add your oats, rice crispies & mix together well until everything is well coated. Once that is done empty it out onto a baking tray layered with greaseproof paper, pat the mixture down firmly, sprinkle on your chocolate chips then and leave it to cool for an hour in the fridge. Once cooled, cut into bars and you’re done!


These literally took me ten minutes to make {not including the hour in the fridge, obviously!} and they are ready to be enjoyed by the whole family! I didn’t think my son would like these, being the fussy bum that he is but according to him and I quote, “These are the best things you’ve EVER made, Mummy!” I think it’s safe to say he likes them!. Everyone loved these, even Miss Belle {after she picked off the choccy chips first of course!}.

According to Ellie they taste ‘a little’ like snickers bars and I reckon she’s right and although these are considerably healthier than a snickers bar & they also make perfect lunch box fillers too!

I can see these being in high demand with this lot so I had best go and put together another batch! That first batch is almost gone already!!

    These look great. I have been meaning to make something similar for months and even though my daughter won’t be able to eat these for a while I will give them a go soon. x

  3. Are these made with quick cooking oats, or does it matter?

    I’m not much into Rice Crispies, treat or otherwise, but these almost make me want to buy some!

      I literally bought Spar’s own oats, 72p or something. Bargain! Cooking oats aren’t required as its a no bake recipe. x

    These sound great. I think they’d be a great replacement for the snack bars I sometimes end up buying – a great treat for the kids.
