I was on a mission to make homemade granola bars – that were low in Weight Watchers points – that were easly ad delicious – these PB2 granola bars – which are 5 Weight Watcher points fit that bill!
Granola bars are a popular food item at our house – it’s a quick breakfast as teenagers are running out the door, good to add to lunch- as a snack coming home from school, etc… I really have to get back to making them myself because I can make a bigger batch – I control what goes in them and they are definitely cheaper than buying them from a store.
What is PB2?
Who has jumped on the PB2 bandwagon? If you aren’t familiar with it – it’s peanut butter, that has had most of the fat removed and reduced to a powder – you reconstitute it with water – or I add them to pancake batter, smoothies – add it to oatmeal – the possibilities are endless.
The best part is 2 tablespoons is only 1 Smart Point on Weight Watchers – so if you LOVE peanut butter as much as I do and want the flavor but not the points – this will be your best friend.
Makes 6 bars
2/3 cups PB2 peanut butter powder
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup sugar free syrup – I use Log Cabin Brand
2 cups oats
30 sugar free chocolate chips
Mix pb2 and water, add the syrup, oats mix well with a spoon.
Push down in an 8×8 brownie pan lined with parchment paper.
Add sugar free chocolate chips on top.
Chill for 2 hours – cut into 6 bars
