Granola Bars Part 3

I have an amazing husband for many different reasons, including he loves to cook and bake. I really liked the last homemade granola bars we made, but he wanted to experiment and come up with his own recipe. They turned out amazing!! They are a little more cookie-like, but they cut into bars well and really stay together like "regular" granola bars.

Here is his recipe:

Matt's Homemade Granola Bars
3 cups oats
1 cup rice krispies
1 cup flour
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
3 eggs
1 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix together all dry ingredients. Melt butter and mix in brown sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Combine dry ingredients with butter mix. Add in eggs and mix well. Allow to cool before adding in chocolate chips. Put in pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into bars. 

$$ On a money-saving side note, Walgreens has a great deal now on toilet paper and paper towels. They have 12 rolls of Cottonnelle toilet paper for $5 and 6 rolls of Scott paper towels for $5. If you spend $15, you get 3,000 Walgreens points, which equals $3. There are also coupons for $.55 off the Cottonelle and $.75 off Scott. So, I got 2 packages of Cottonnelle and 1 package of Scott for $15 minus the $3 for the points and minus $1.85 for coupons, so all three for $10.15 or $3.38 each. That makes the toilet paper $.28 a roll and the paper towels $.56 a roll!
