Peanut Butter and Oats Granola Bars

Granola bars have always been my weakness when it comes to snacking. I just didn’t want the sugar the store bought ones have. So,  I made this recipe, so i could enjoy my granola bars without guilt. These bars are so delicious and hearty, you can eat them as breakfast or snack. I also like the fact that they are softer than what you would expect from a granola bar.
