Peanut Butter Granola Mini Bars

I made these for a class at school and everyone loved them. They are not low calorie, but they are healthier, especially if you use natural peanut butter.

   1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
   1/3 cup honey
   1 egg
   2 Tbsp canola oil
   1 tsp vanilla extract
   3 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
   1/2 cup packed brown sugar
   3/4 tsp salt
   1/3 cup peanut butter chips
   1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

1. In a large bowl, beat the peanut butter, honey, egg, oil and vanilla  until blended. Combine the oars, brown sugar and salt; add to the peanut butter mixture and mix well. Stir in chips. (Batter will be sticky.)

2. Transfer to a 13x9 in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350ยบ for 12-15 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

Yield: 3 dozen
