With just a dash of cinnamon, these crunchy homemade granola bars are full of peanut buttery delight. They're healthy enough for breakfast yet sweet enough for dessert, and they're a fantastic on-the-go snack at any time. Smooth peanut butter is called for in the recipe, however chunky peanut butter can also be used.

1/4 cup Brown Rice Syrup
1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
