A Catholic Foodie: How fast can you say No-Bake-Chocolate-Peanut-Butter-Granola-Bar?

By Gina Ling of Ranchos Marketing

It’s August vacation! This is a great snack recipe for the kiddies! My nieces love helping me make this no-bake chocolate peanut butter Granola Bar recipe.


  • 1 cup smooth, salted peanut butter
  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup baker’s chocolate – I use Nestlé’s semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Line a square 8”x8” pan with grease paper.
  2. In a medium-sized heat-resistant bowl, add the peanut butter to the honey and heat in the microwave for 15-second intervals until they’re both fluid and mixed.
  3. Stir in the chia, flax & rolled oats, and mix well.
  4. In your lined pan, empty the contents of the bowl and spread evenly.
  5. In a smaller bowl, add the baker’s chocolate and the milk.
  6. Heat in microwave at 10-second intervals, trying not to burn the chocolate.
  7. Once it is smooth & runny, pour chocolate all over the granola – you can drizzle for a fancy design or you can just plop all and spread it out.
  8. Place pan in the fridge for 1 hour. Or, if you’re impatient like me, in the freezer for 15 mins until hardened.
  9. Once hard, remove from parchment and with a smooth, sharp knife; cut into the desired shape and ENJOY!
