Let’s Make This PBJ Granola Bar Recipe!
First we start with the crust. All you have to do is mix a few ingredients together in your food processor. If you are looking for a vegan option, you can swap the honey out for another sweetener like agave or maple syrup, or check out the crust recipe from my mini mango cheesecakes or pumpkin spice cheesecakes.
I use my homemade raspberry chia jam in this recipe because I think homemade jam is just the best. IF you are using this, ideally you’d make it the night before to give it time to really thicken. If you don’t have that kind of time, if you make it an hour or so beforehand it will be fine, or check out my Amazon shop where you can find store bought jams that aren’t ridden with sugar and icky additives. Always check your ingredients!
In addition to the ingredients listed, you will need:
- a food processor or high speed blender
- parchment paper
- an 8.5×8.5 inch baking dish
- access to a freezer
- a spoon and/or knife
I hope you enjoy NOT baking!Print
