Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Peanut Butter Granola Bar Recipe |

Our family regularly eats granola bars as snacks. Β They’re great for on-the-go, road trips, for snacking before sports practices, or just any old time.

Have you met the chocolate granola bar yet? Β It’s amazing, and so is this recipe for the peanut version.

Peanut Butter Granola Bar Recipe |



  1. Hi- Just wondering if you can use the old fasioned oats or do you use quick oats since you don’t cook them?

    • Hey Cara. The old-fashioned kind. I think quick oats work fine, but would just be a different texture. πŸ™‚

  2. Would this work without the wheat germ? No gluten in our family.

  3. Thank you!

  4. I just found your blog on Pinterest, love these granola bars and will be making these for sure!!!

  5. Do you think I could substitue coconut butter in place of the oil since it’s getting melted in the pan? If not, what other oil do you think would work well?

  6. Have you tried to create a healthy chocolate peanut butter granola bar?

  7. Hi Brandy. Just found your website and wanted to say hi. Gotta appreciate another woman named Brandy who is a homeschooling momma who is pregnant with their 8th baby. Congrats to you my internet twin πŸ™‚

  8. I have an etsy website: Blogging sounds fun – thought of it but I just don’t know how faithful I’d be πŸ™‚

    • Oh my goodness! Such pretty stuff!! πŸ™‚

      • Thanks πŸ™‚ 2 of my girls and a few of my boys are my models on there. That’s just a part time… let’s see if this works… sort of sewing/ creative outlet… Proverbs 31 woman thing. Tends to end up more of a… ugghhh… loosing patience, working to much at night, why am I doing this? anti-Proverbs 31 woman thing but I like it – most of the time πŸ˜‰
        The Lord’s been gracious. Good to see other woman who love their little ones and truly consider their children ‘a heritage from the Lord’!

  9. about how many in a batch does this make?

    I’m allergic to coconut – is there a substitute I can use or just omit it?

    • I’ve read some comments in recipes from people that have said they are using crushed cereal instead of coconut. I haven’t tried it, but they said it worked. I thought about crisp rice cereal…..I’m not sure though, since I haven’t tried it.

    Just found you through pinterest! I want to try your granola bars!! Your recipe mentions storing them in the fridge. We will be traveling without a fridge. Can we store them at room temperature? Thanks,

  12. These are delicious!!! Do you have the nutritional information by chance?

  13. I subbed in butter for coconut oil and added mini chocolate chips. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

    I love these bars, and more importantly, so does my son! I was wondering about the melty factor. When I put them in our insulated snack bag and spent the day at Disneyland, they were not bars any longer (after being out of the fridge for 2 hours). I didn’t use the wheat germ as we are gfcfsf. Could that have been the difference or is that just how they are? We are more than happy to eat them straight out of the fridge, I was just wanting to pack them, too. Thanks for your site! You are amazing πŸ™‚

    • No, I don’t think it’s the wheat germ being left out….They’re just soft and chewy and melty…Sorry. Working on a crunchy version that will pack better. πŸ™‚

  15. What would you suggest to use instead of coconut oil. Sadly I am allergic.

  16. Howdy! I made these this afternoon, and they’re fantastic. I added 1 tsp vanilla, and I read about possible room-temp stability issues, so I added 1/4 block of food-grade paraffin wax and they set up perfectly. So far, no refrigeration needed! I will know more when I take them to the movies tomorrow…what a great movie snack/treat! Thank you so much–can’t wait to make the chocolate ones!

  17. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! For weeks I’ve been trying to find a simple recipe for healthy PB granola bars, but only came across intraquit recipes with costly ingredients. These are the greatest! The only thing I substituted was agave nectar for honey to make them vegan. πŸ™‚ Thanks again!

  18. Brandy, thank you for sharing this recipe! I am so glad to have found your blog, it is fantastic! Am a huge coconut oil lover, we will be trying these tomorrow! Thanks!

  19. We love these! They’re way too easy to make and so addictive. πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  20. Do you have the nutritional information by chance?

  21. Thank you for this recipe! (and your chocolate peanut butter granola bars too…mmmmm)….I LOVE that I can easily make healthy granola bars for my kids with no garbage in them! They taste so good and are so easy to make!

    My first time on the website… looks like some fantastic ideas.. Is the est. calories count on these recipes?? figured i missed them some where????

  23. I made these last night. I was not fast enough and didnt get one! So I just made another batch. I ran out of peanuts, so I used chocolate chips sprinkled on top. So yummy! Thank you for sharing this!

    What is the nutrition information


  1. […] adapted from original recipe, found here […]

  2. […] Peanut Butter Granola Bars:Β This will require some oversight by mom … it’s true. But only because you have to melt a few things together on the stove. But let the kids mix it up and spread it in the pan! […]
