Peanut Butter Granola Bars

I've been buying CLIF granola bars. They're delicious, and I'm picky/snobby about my granola bars, so I don't like anything Price Chopper carries except Odwalla, which are kinda pricey.

A friend of mine mentioned that she took my strawberry-almond granola bar recipe and swapped out the strawberry jam for peanut butter and chocolate chips. I thought I'd try leaving out the chocolate chips to make them healthier.

They tasted okay, but were dry, crumbly and missing something. The next day I picked up a bag of chocolate chips from Walmart and dumped them over the not-so-great pan of granola.

Then I microwaved it all to soften the chocolate.

Layered goodness. Definitely dessert, and not a healthy snack like I'd hoped. Next time I'll just put in the chocolate chips from the start.
