Healthy Home Made Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola Bars

These are so good –  I made a few changes to a recipe I found here is my tweak on it
These are great for a quick snack – after school – When you need a little something –

R e c i p e:
I cup oatmeal
3 cups chocolate puffed rice cereal – I used Koala Chocolate Crisp shown here
1 cup peanut butter – I used Adams All Natural Chunky
1/2 – 1 cup chopped almonds
3 Tbls Cocoa powder
1 scoop Protein Powder vanilla or chocolate – Can be made without if you don’t have any on hand – still tastes great
1/2 – 1 cup shredded coconut – I used unsweetened
1/3 – 1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla

Just Mix together – press into 9×13 pan and put in the freezer for an hour – then you can take out and cut -Store them  in the freezer – You can eat immediately from freezer!!!
You can adjust how you like – I think even more almonds would be good – And I like using the chunky peanut butter for more nuts there too!

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Bread

Pumpkin PB Bunt Bread.4

                         Pumpkin – Peanut Butter – Chocolate Chip – Bundt Bread

I had been wanting to make pumpkin bread for a bit now that the time is here! I had been thinking about a couple of different ones I wanted to try… a Peanut Butter and Choc chip Bread, which I have never heard of one with peanut butter in it before but I am a huge fan of PB so I had to try. The other one was a recipe using  protective blend and Clove essential Oils. I was curious and wanted to make as well. And since I have such a hard time deciding, I decided to combine them and make up my own using inspiration from those two recipes, plus my own twists and love and then poured it all in a bunt pan – who has time for two bread pans?  I have to say it turned out sooo gooood!
And I’m not the only one who thought so , my kids agreed.
We devoured it within two days and I can’t wait to make it again.

When it came out I brushed with Coconut Oil all over – It’s so good and then of course spread a little more on each piece we ate!

*You don’t have to do the coconut oil on top/bottom but if you have it and love it – I say do it. * And if don’t have the protective blend and Clove Oils email me or substitute with pumpkin pie spice.

I hope you enjoy it!  Something a little different than your usual pumpkin bread!
