No Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars

No Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Pretzel Granola Bars:
I don’t know about your kids buy my boys are always asking for those little chocolate chip granola bars at the grocery store.
They are just so expensive for that tiny box.  I decided it was time to try to make them myself and save some money!
These are the perfect bit of sweet and salty for a great little snack.  You can cut them into little bars and put them in a zip lock bag and add them to any sack lunch!  All 3 of my boys and my husband just loved these!  My 12 year old step son took some to school and shared with one of his friends who also really enjoyed them!
