  1. Mix quick oats, granola, sunflower seeds, chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries, and ground flax seeds together in a large bowl.
  2. Combine peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar together in a saucepan, stirring constantly over medium-low heat until sugar melts, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring until well-blended. Press mixture firmly into 9x13-inch pan. Cut into 16 bars.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Any type or flavor peanut butter may be used. My favorite is Planters Cherry Chocolate®.
  • The same amount of any dried fruit or nuts may be substituted.

This was a quick and easy granola bar recipe and they are great to wrap individually for snacks during a long day!
