No-Bake SunButter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

SunButter and Chocolate Chip Granola Bars - 4

Being severely allergic to peanuts/nuts, along with the fact that most granola bars contain some kind of nut anyway even if they’re not processed in a facility with them, I can tell you that there are virtually no granola bars at the grocery store that I can eat – and believe me, I’ve looked. The closest I came were Special K breakfast bars, but after reading through an ingredient list filled with things I can’t pronounce, I decided to go another way. Fortunately, making your own granola bars at home is incredibly easy! You don’t even have to bake them (although you can if you like). I made these at the beginning of the week, and I still have plenty left for the next week and a half or so. A perfect quick breakfast to have on hand for when you’re on the go!

In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, salt, and chocolate chips. Add in the honey and mix until combined. Stir in the warm SunButter. (If the mixture isn’t sticking together well enough, just add more honey.)

Press the mixture evenly into a greased 9×13″ baking dish and refrigerate at least 60 minutes.

Cut them into bars, and then wrap them into single servings. Store them in the refrigerator so that they stay nice and chewy!

  1. Did anyone else have trouble with their bars crumbling? They tasted delicious, but were a mess. How can they stick better?

  2. Cristina – Try adding more honey or brown rice syrup! Hope that helps!

  4. I think I want to make these for my boss for Christmas. She’s allergic to peanuts and chocolate. But she can eat almonds. I found small cinnamon chips so I think I’ll change the chocolate chips and almond butter. Thank you for the idea. Love your site!

  5. My son is severely allergic to peanuts and tree nuts and I am always looking for new recipes to try. I discovered this granola bar recipe, using Sunbutter (which we love!) and decided to give it a try. The whole pan was gone in 2 days! Everyone loved them and now I will be making them at least once a week. I look forward to finding some more “safe” recipes through your website. Thank you!
