Peanut butter chocolate chip granola bars


Step 4: Press into pan and bake

Since I didn't want to dirty my pan, I first lined it with parchment paper.  Then dump the mixture into the pan and press with the back of a spoon so that the layer is even.  At this point I decided that more chocolate was necessary so I pressed a few chocolate chips into the top of the pan (I have an addiction).

Return to the oven (which is now at 300 F) for 15-30 minutes.  It will smell fantastic.  For crispier bars leave it in the oven for longer.  I wanted mine to be crispier, so I let them bake for 27 minutes.
