Crunchy Peanut Butter Granola Bars make a great grab & go breakfast or anytime snack. Wholegrain oats, protein rich peanuts and honey + dates as natural sweeteners, leave you feeling good after eating.

Place rolled oats on a baking sheet and toast at 350 degrees F for 5-7 minutes to desired level. Place into a large bowl with peanuts.
Blend pitted dates in a food processor until smooth. Scrape sides if needed.
Place processed dates, peanut butter, honey and optional salt into a small saucepan. Heat on low while stirring until combined and smooth.
Pour over oats and peanuts and mix well to combine. Press mixture into a line 8x8 inch pan and chill in fridge or freezer until set. Cut into bars.
I like to keep them in a container in the freezer to keep fresh.
