White chocolate chip & PB granola bars

If you’re solely a chocolate lover, you’re not going to get this. Just be quiet and use chocolate chips.

But if you love vanilla ice cream better than chocolate and white chocolate chips better than chocolate chips, you are salivating right now. True, white chocolate is not sophisticated, and it’s mostly made of sugar, but it sure tastes good.

The best part of this granola bar recipe, unlike my others, is that you don’t have to bake them. Eat them right out of the pot.

But of course, if you’re sophisticated, you’re obviously waiting for the bars to harden one hour in the fridge…and you’re using chocolate chips.

WHITE CHOCOLATE PB GRANOLA BARS
3T butter (you probably can substitute coconut oil here, but I never tried)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1t cinnamon
1/2t salt
1.5 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup rice krispies
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup white chocolate chips (can substitute actual chocolate)

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a pot over low heat, stirring throughout. Let it bubble, while stirring, for about 3 minutes. Add the honey and peanut butter and stir.
