Tired of endless PB+J sandwiches? Give
these bars a try instead!
They are a little more crumbly than a
store-bought granola bar, however.
As a bonus, these are made entirely
from ingredients that you can find in
any corner store or food pantry. Any
kind of jam or jelly will do; I used
blueberry, but grape or strawberry or
any other flavor would be tasty
Heat the oven to 350 °F.
Butter or oil an 8” x 11” baking pan. If you have a
different size pan, that’s fine—it’ll just change how
thick the bars are.
Pour the oats into a large bowl. You can use quick oats
if they’re all you have, but I prefer the bite and chew
of rolled oats. For a different texture, you can also
substitute a cup of oats with a cup of Rice Krispies, but
the bars are great either way.
Add the peanut butter, half the jelly, the water, and the
salt to a small pan. Stir over low heat until it’s smooth.
Mix the peanut butter and jelly concoction into the oats
until all the oats are coated and you have a sticky mass.
Dump the mixture into the oiled pan and press it into
an even layer. Spread the remaining jelly over the top.
Pop the pan into the oven for 25 minutes, until it’s
toasty and brown around the edges. Mmm. Crunchy.
Leave the bars in the pan until they cool completely,
about an hour, then slice into 12 bars.
