Healthy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Granola Bar Bites
Yields: 25 granola bar bites
These granola bar bites are perfect for meal prepping and quick grab-and-go breakfasts or snacks! They’re soft and chewy with lots of rich chocolate and comforting peanut flavors. Leftovers will keep for at least five days (if not longer!) if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F, and coat an 8”-square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites. Stir in the peanut butter until completely incorporated. Stir in the Greek yogurt, honey, and salt, mixing until thoroughly combined. Stir in the rice cereal and oats. Gently fold in 1 ½ tablespoons of miniature chocolate chips.
  3. Gently press the mixture into the prepared pan using a spatula, and gently press the remaining chocolate chips into the top. Bake at 300°F for 11-14 minutes or until the center feels firm to the touch. Cool completely to room temperature in the pan before slicing into squares.
Notes: This is my homemade creamy peanut butter recipe. You just need 5 minutes and a blender to make it! If you prefer using store-bought, then make sure the only ingredients are peanuts and salt. Do not use crunchy peanut butter.

Pure maple syrup or agave may be substituted for the honey.

Regular crisp rice cereal (like Rice Krispies) may be substituted for the brown rice cereal. In a pinch, lightly crushed rice pocket cereal may also be substituted.

Instant oats may be substituted for the old-fashioned oats. Do not substitute steel-cut oats.

Remember to measure the brown rice cereal and oats correctly, using this method or a kitchen scale. (← That’s the one I own and love!) Too much of either ingredient will dry out the batter, and the ingredients won’t fully incorporate. If this happens to you, then add 1-2 tablespoons of milk (any type will work!) until all of the ingredients can be fully incorporated.

I do not recommend substituting regular-sized chocolate chips. Their bigger size causes the granola bar bites to fall apart. If you only have regular-sized chocolate chips, then chop them with a knife first!
