    These bars are soooo good! I didn't have enough chocolate chips so I added some butterscotch chips, and I'm so glad I did. Next time I will do the same!

    I used pancake syrup in place of honey and they turned out super! Best granola bars I've made and my 3 children rated them awesome! They are moist, chewy and full of of peanut butter flavor.

    A soft, chewy granola bar! Made this easy to prepare bar during the blizzard of 2016. Huge hit with snow shoveling family. Followed directions exactly, they do need to cool completely. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home, I enjoy recipes that can be quickly made with ingredients on hand.

    I made these as a post-workout snack/breakfast, and I added some pureed honey-roasted peanuts and chocolate & peanut butter protein powder. They are amazing, filling, and perfect to start off my day!

    These are so good. My kids prefer these over store bought granola bars.

    I used between 3/4 and 1 cup of natural p.b and used only 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, that being said, I am notorious for cutting sugar in recipes, as I did in this one, but please don't I think it's safe to say the (sugar+honey) called for in this recipe is right on for a lightly sweetened treat. baked 13 minutes @ 350 cooled before cutting, they're holding together great. Thanks

    Definitely would be good with dark chocolate for me.
