  • In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, honey, butter, and peanut butter. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • In a large bowl stir together granola, sunflower kernels, soy nuts, almonds, and peanut butter pieces. Add brown sugar mixture to granola mixture; toss to combine. Immediately press granola mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Chill about 15 minutes or until firm.

  • Use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Place on cutting board; cut into 8x1-inch bars. Transfer bars to a sheet of waxed paper. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand about 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. Place bars in bag; close bag.

MAKE-AHEAD DIRECTIONS:

Layer bars between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Tips

In place of the peanut-butter flavor, we like honey-flavor, maple-flavor, or other flavor granola. In place of the peanut butter pieces, try butterscotch flavor or white baking pieces.
