Chewy Granola Bars Recipe @pinch

Throw a couple of these homemade granola bars in a resealable bag and you have a great on-the-go snack. They're chewy, sweet, and full of texture. Puffed rice gives them a little crunch and the oats are chewy. The peanut butter flavor is faint, but there. We loved the tart contrast from the dried cranberries. So good! These are really yummy. My 16 month old loves them too...minus the cranberries and raisins.
