PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY GRANOLA BARS by
1 ½ cup rolled oats
½ cup jam
¼ cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon coconut oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup chopped peanuts
½ cup rolled oats
tablespoons brown sugar
tablespoon coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 9X5 loaf pan with parchment paper or foil.
Spread the oats on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 10 minutes, stirring at the 5 minute mark to ensure they toast evenly. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Heat the jam, peanut butter, sugar, oil, and salt in a small saucepan. Simmer for about 3 minutes over medium heat until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Dump the toasted oats into the pot and stir to thoroughly coat.
Transfer the mixture to the lined loaf pan in an even layer. Press the chopped peanuts into the top of the mixture.
Bake the bars for 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Remove the bars from the pan and cut into bars using a sharp knife.
