Chewy Peanut Butter Trail Bars


This recipe is good for a quick-to-fix treat or can be made ahead to have on hand for those days when you don’t have time for breakfast, or hiking snacks, or…

Also, by using rice, oats and corn, they can be made gluten-free if you have a friend or family member with allergies.


3/4 cup peanut butter

2/3 cup honey

a total of 2 1/2 cups grain stuff (1/2-3/4 cup each type) like: graham cracker crumbs, granola, quick oats, crushed Cheerios or Chex cereal, Rice Crispies, etc.

a total of 2 cups fillings (1/2-3/4 cup each type) like: chopped peanuts, walnuts or pecans, raisins, coconut, chocolate chips, carob chips, chopped dried apricots, dried cranberries, etc.

Heat honey and peanut butter until melted and smooth.  Put all other ingredients in a middle-size bowl.  Add honey and peanut butter to dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly. Press down into a 9×9 baking style pan. Score. Cool.  Eat quickly before someone else does.
