The Best Granola Bars in Town

What do you get when you mix peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate chips? A whole lot of yummy, that's what. Here is a recipe for granola bars that are easy to throw together and even easier to eat. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter and Banana Granola Bars
makes about 10 bars
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups puffed cereal (wheat puffs, Rice Crispies, ect.)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and oil an 8X10" pan. Mix together the honey, peanut butter, cinnamon, and banana. You may need to microwave it a bit to get a runny consistency. Stir the wet ingredients into the oats. Add the cereal and chocolate chips. Spread the mixture out onto the baking pan, and bake for about 20 minutes, or until oats begin to brown a bit. Allow the pan to cool before cutting the granola slab into bars.

My little neighbor that I always used to babysit is turning three in a couple of days. I cannot believe how fast time has flown! It feels like her mamma was just telling us that she was pregnant again just the other day. Now Miss Nora is a bright, funny chatterbox. She is pretty much a child prodigy too. That kid knew her ABCs and how to count right after she turned two. I cannot imagine how much smarter she will be when I see her again. Anyway, I sent her this card the other day to wish her a happy third birthday.
