These granola bars are:
The base of these delicious bars is made from oats, crispy rice cereal, peanut butter, and honey. The flavor is out of this world good, and the crispy + chewy texture is spot on! These have quickly become a favorite snack in our house!
I actually prepped 3 batches of these to freeze for after the baby- I am that obsessed!! They will be such a good and easy grab-and-go snack for breastfeeding, running to appointments, or just needing something quick while taking care of the baby 🙂
These granola bars are loaded with chocolate chips, chewy goji berries, and crunchy pumpkin seeds. They also have hemp seeds for extra plant protein, and unsweetened shredded coconut for added fiber.
I just cannot get over how perfect these turned out, and I could not wait to share them with you all!

2 cups old fashioned oats (gluten free, if needed)
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4–1/3 cup goji berries
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (dairy free, if needed)
1/4 tsp sea salt
In a large mixing bowl, mix peanut butter, honey, and vanilla together.
Add remaining ingredients and fold everything together until everything is evenly coated.
Add mixture to a parchment-lined 9×13” baking dish. Use a spatula or bottom of a mason jar to press the mixture down tight, leaving about an 1” of space on all sides so that the bars are not too thin. Allow to cool in the fridge for 2-3 hours before slicing. Bars can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 weeks, or the freezer for up to 3 months.
