Beat those hunger cravings with these delicious, no-bake gluten free chocolate peanut butter granola bars. Even better – with only five ingredients, they’re quick and easy to make!
I have a slight obsession with granola bars. And by slight, I mean total and complete love for any and all granola bar food.
Even before the whole celiac disease thing, I was in love. Post-diagnosis, my obsession just became more challenging since at the time, there weren’t too many options out there.
This lead to lots of homemade experimentation. And now, it’s sort of an art that usually involves throwing a bunch of random ingredients into the food processor, adding a syrupy-like substance to hold it together and calling it good.
It’s kind of what happened here. Today’s recipe has been a tried-and-true for about the past five years. It’s my “base” mixture that I usually add onto to create something else.
I mean, it’s made up of chocolate and peanut butter and only needs five ingredients and is pretty much the fastest way to a delicious snack. 🙂 Pretty awesome, right?!
