Choose your own adventure! It’s a great philosophy for life…and for the kitchen. If you haven’t explored much in those four walls, you must try these make-it-your-way, peanut butter granola bars. The recipe will be a map that leads you to an exciting – and delicious – destination. Which trails you take, however, are entirely up to your taste buds. For instance, you can swap the peanut butter for equal amounts of another butter, or choose chocolate protein over vanilla. And the cup of trail mix you add is a wide-open (blank) space. The only thing you need to pack for this adventure is your imagination.
