  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup oat flour You can grind your own in a food processor or substitute with quick oats
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/3 cup peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground flaxseeds optional
  • 1/4-1/3 cup strawberry jelly for filling plus more for drizzling


  1. Line an 8 x 8 square baking dish with parchment paper or foil sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Add peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey to a large pot over medium-low to medium heat. Stir continuously with a spoon until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and cinnamon.
  3. Add rolled oats, quick oats, oat flour and flaxseeds and stir until combined. Press half of the oat mixture into the prepared baking dish. Spoon the jelly across the top of the oat mixture and spread evenly. Spoon in the remaining half of the oat mixture pressing down gently with a spatula or your hands.
  4. Sprinkle the tops with peanuts or chocolate chips if desired. Press down lightly so the nuts will stick to the surface.
  5. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm and set. Remove from the fridge and cut into bars or squares. Store bars in the refrigerator, either in an airtight container with wax paper separating the layers, or individually wrapped in plastic wrap.

Recipe Notes

Granola Bars will keep up to one week in the fridge or up to two months in the freezer.
