Sweet, salty, and crunchy, these no-bake peanut butter pretzel granola bars are perfect for a delicious snack between meals!

Several months ago, I posted about a granola bar recipe that my brother requested. The result, my chocolate pretzel granola bars, wasn’t quite what he originally had in mind. There were no complaints– they are really good!– but he was still looking for something more peanut buttery.

So I came up with these little beauties. They received his approval, and quickly became one of my own personal favorite granola bars!

The sweetness of the maple syrup and molasses is a perfect accompaniment to the saltiness of the pretzels, and peanut butter just makes everything better.


Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars

Yield: 8-12 granola bars

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • ⅓ cup pretzels, crushed

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x5 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir the oat flour, oats, maple syrup, and molasses together until combined. Press firmly into the bottom of the pan and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir the peanut butter and milk together until smooth, then stir in the crushed pretzels.
  4. Spread the peanut butter pretzel mix smoothly over the oat layer.
  5. Chill the bars in the refrigerator to set before cutting.

Thinking Out Loud

  1. Currently reading: Beastly Bones by William Ritter
  2. Pretty much the only thing I’ve been thinking about this week has been setting up the new blog– lots of work for me but pretty boring to talk about, so I’ll spare you. My family hasn’t been so lucky. 😉
  3. Who else makes their own birthday cake? I’ve had some people imply that it’s a bit weird, but I don’t mind. 🙂 As usual, I made a cheesecake– a yummy, yummy cheesecake.
  4. Timewasting for foodies: can you identify these spices?
  5. Recipes I tried this week:
    Zucchini Banana Bread – Chocolate-Covered Katie

    Just read this recipe to my husband and he’s all on board for this.

    He loves Blackstrap molasses which to me is like motor oil!! 😉

    Thank you so much for joining us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We are happy to have your beautiful post linked up.

    These look amazing! I love granola bars! We use all einkorn flour in our recipes due to wheat reactions. So I just need to get on the ball with a homemade pretzel recipe (which I’ve been meaning to do anyway) and then I can make these! Yum!

    You had me at pretzels…and peanut butter…and no bake lol! These look amazingly tasty!

    I’ve make my own birthday cake since going vegan but I’m going to try to make someone else bake me one this year! 🙂

    Oh my word: I am in love. And that is in spite of the lack of chocolate in these, which would otherwise put me off them. But please…you’re killing me here. These have “make as soon as possible” written all over them. Thank goodness I showed up to The Alder Collective Party today! 🙂

    • Courtney says:

      I won’t lie– I was totally going to add chocolate chips to these, because adding chocolate chips is kind of my default mode. 😉
      Thank you so much for your kind comment, and I hope you enjoy the granola bars! 🙂
