These peanut butter granola bars are a classic lunch box treat made from natural, whole food ingredients and no refined sugar.
Tip the rolled oats, rice crisp cereal, peanuts, cinnamon, and salt into a large bowl and stir to combine. Set aside
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, gently whisk together the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil until smooth, runny, and emulsified. Do not boil.
Once the wet ingredients are fully combined, remove the pan from the heat. Add the vanilla and whisk vigorously.
Bake the bars for 13-15 minutes, or until the edges and top start to turn a deep golden brown. If the bars begin to brown too much, lightly cover them with a layer of foil. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the bars to cool in the pan completely before removing.
