These easy-to-make gluten free chewy oatmeal chocolate chip granola bars are a delicious and healthy way to satisfy those hunger cravings!
Today’s granola bar rendition is a little different from the previous coconut bites and no-bake bars in that you a) need to throw it in the oven and b) it doesn’t have ANY peanut butter in it.
I know, I know. But some people aren’t huge peanut butter fans. As shocking as that may sound, it’s true. A very good friend of mine absolutely hates the stuff and our friendship went into question many-a-time due to the fact that I have an obsession and the smell made her want to vomit.
I’m happy to report that we’ve remained friends AND I can throw something together that doesn’t have one of my main food groups.
These bars are super quick and easy to put together (duh.) and they’re especially exceptional right outta the oven.
I brought over a freshly baked one to Brett and before I could get back to the kitchen he was asking for another.
It’s safe to say, I think this one is a hit 🙂
