Peanut butter

Peanut butter is a paste usually used as a bread spread. It also has a smooth and thick texture that binds and shapes the oats together.

Moreover, this adds a nutty and mildly sweet flavor to make the bars yummier! You can also prepare Peanut Butter Banana Milkshake to pair with the Peanut Butter Granola Bars. 


Honey is an organic and healthy sweetener that will give the granola bars a caramel taste and texture. It also helps mix the oats and peanut butter for easy storage. 

Additionally, this is my go-to sweetener for Iced Tea and other desserts!

List these down to make tasty Peanut Butter Granola Bars that are good for you! They will surely have the best flavor and health benefits.
