Peanut Butter Pumpkin Flax Granola Bars

My husband and son are going on a road trip to a Taekwon Do referee course so I wanted to pack some road snacks for them. Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola is on sale at Costco so I decided to use that for some good bars!

1/2 cup butter (or coconut oil would be good too!)
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup oatmeal
4 cups Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola( you don't HAVE to use that kind, any kind would really be good)
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins

Melt butter, honey and brown sugar over medium heat.

Cook and stir until the sugar is fully melted.
Stir in peanut butter until smooth, remove from heat.

While the butter mixture is cooking mix oatmeal, granola, almonds , chocolate chips and raisins in a large bowl.

Pour butter mixture over the granola mixture and toss well(the chocolate chips will melt quite a bit, if you would rather them be more whole, dont put them in until the very end of mixing )

Line a 13x 9 pan with parchment paper.
 Pour the granola mixture into the pan and press it in evenly.

Refridgerate for an hour, then remove and slice into your desired shapes
