Peanut Butter Granola Bars :)

So this was my first attempt to make homemade granola bars...and other than it being a little crumbly, it's pretty tasty.Well...before I say how tasty it is....let me explain that I found a recipe, and pretty much changed the whole thing to make it lower calorie/less weight watcher points.'s pretty tasty, considering what it is.

{please excuse the horrible it was taken from my {not so} smart phone}


Peanut Butter Granola Bars

4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup peanut butter, melted (I use Peter Pan Whipped Peanut Butter)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/8 cup + 1 TBSP honey
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup shredded coconut

*Preheat oven to 350*

Mix all dry ingredients together. Add honey, applesauce and peanut butter. Mix well,
press into a greased (I greased my pan heavily with canola spray) 13x9 inch pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

(I used wax paper to press "dough" into pan evenly)

YIELD: 20 granola bars
Weight Watchers Points+: 3points (1/20th of pan)

***This recipe could definitely use more peanut butter, honey or applesauce... or all three! It would help it stick together more than the above recipe... BUT... I'll stick with my three point snack, thanks!)
