TOTAL TIME:

INGREDIENTS

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup JUSTIN’S® Classic or Honey Peanut Butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup raspberry preserves

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugars, and peanut butter on medium speed until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to butter mixture, and mix on low speed until just incorporated.
  3. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a well-floured surface. Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Reroll scraps, and repeat process. Place half of the cut-outs on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Using a 1-inch heart-shaped cutter, cut out and remove dough star shapes from the center of the remaining half of dough rounds. Transfer dough rounds with heart cutouts removed to lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake cookies 12 to 13 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer pans to wire racks, and cool cookies completely.
  5. Sift powdered sugar over cookies with star cutouts. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons preserves on one side of remaining cookies. Place a heart cutout cookie, powdered sugar side up, over each jam covered cookie, and gently press.

Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bars out of the tray with Justin's peanut butter jar on a white background side view

I love creating recipes that don’t require any heat because I can make my kids do it when I get lazy. This Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Granola was made with your kids in mind. I’ve included JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter and JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter for added sweetness. I’ve also added “easy” and “no bake” in the title so they don’t complain. You can even let them have a piece if you’re feeling extra generous.
