Peanut Butter Granola Bars

It's halfway through your school or work day and you find yourself barely awake since you've probably not had as much sleep as you'd wished for the night before. This peanut butter granola bar is perfect for a pick me up snack, and since they contain oats, the energy will be slowly released throughout the rest of the day so that you don't come crashing down an hour after eating one.
Ingredients:
-180g rolled oats
-33g peanuts, chopped
-95g peanut butter
-85g honey
-dried fruit, seeds, nuts, choc chips etc. (optional)
Method:
1) Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.
2) Combine the oats and peanuts.
3) Melt the honey and peanut butter and add to the mixture.
4) Throw in any optional extras of your choice. (I used dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips)
5) If, at this stage, the mix is too dry add in more melted honey or peanut butter. 
6) Put the granola bar concoction into a lined tray and bake for 25 minutes. 
7) These granola bars also work as none bake by putting them into the fridge for an hour. 
I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe, stay around for another blog post next Sunday! :)
