Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola

Remember when I was so tempted a few weeks ago to make these granola bars?

Well I gave in to my temptation, lucky to have all of the ingredients on hand! The process was pretty easy. Well messy, but easy and I was so excited to smell the deliciousness of the melding of chocolate, oats, pretzels, peanut butter, and rice krispies (yes!) baking together in the oven.

My end was result was...different than expected! Maybe the humidity had something to do with it, or maybe there was not enough holding the "dough" together, but after I let the bars cool and went to cut them, they broke into many little pieces. So really it turned into granola instead of the intended granola bar. Do I still love it? Yes! Absolutely! The flavors are fantastic! I had a little bit yesterday post run and it was a delicious little treat to have (speaking of treats, it would also be fabulous on ice cream!).

I found the recipe here so let me know if you guys make it and what happens! It's still tasty and I definitely want to try again and share with friends!
