Pretzel rhymes with wrestle, as in, “I’ll wrestle you for one of these Nut Butter Cup Dipped Pretzels”. That’s what my daughter said to me last time I made a batch of these. I’ve combined the saltiness of pretzels with the sweetness of my famous nut butter cups and voila! I present to you one of the greatest snacks ever invented.

 

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.
