Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Bars

 

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Bars are very very easy to make. They are crunchy and salty sweet as well as soft and  delicious to eat.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Bars

I have always been a snack queen (clicks and twirls) and granola or cereal bars are my favourite snacks ever. However the ready made variety are often loaded with sugar. These dreamy Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Bars are all about simple ingredients and they are naturally sweetened. Also, because the ingredients are very basic, you can swap them as needed. Technically I don’t know if these can be called a granola bar. Well they do have oats, nuts and dates in them so i guess it counts, right?

Have you ever made homemade granola bars? I make them a lot. Basically I am an addict. I reallllly hope you all love these bars! They are:

Crunchy on top and soft in the middle
Salty sweet
Easy to make
Healthy
Delicious

These are the perfect bars to have on hand for a quick breakfast, snack or healthy dessert. They make great travel companions.They are fab with a Masala Chai, Turmeric Milk or a Gingerbread Latte. 

For more granola bar recipes, check out my Sunnah Inspired Date, Honey and Black Seed Cereal Bar and my Date Cereal Bars.

I’m so excited to share this post with you because granola bars are life. I have spent a lot of time and energy making a variety of granola bars and I will be uploading more. These ones are like a mini version but nonetheless delicious. By the way if you like these, or you think someone else might like them, or you want to save it for later, please share and tag me #tiffinandtea. Firstly it makes me really happy when people make my recipes. I love getting your messages. It is also really helpful to me when you sure my work. Thank you to all of you who do and will!

  • 4 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 1 heaped tbsp Salted Peanuts chopped
  • 10 Dates (Pre soak for 30 minutes if they are hard)

Chocolate Chia Oats with Caramelised Bananas

Chocolate Chia Oats with Caramelised Bananas

One of my favourite ways to start the morning is with a big bowl of Chocolate Chia Oats with Caramelised Bananas. Porridge has a reputation for being a. boring and b. slimy.  There are so many ways you can dress porridge up but actually oats are a blank canvas and if made right aren’t slimy at all. This bowl of oats is amazing. Trust me and try them.
