These bars are delicious and several people who have tried them wanted the recipe. So better late then never with getting it out there for you all!!
I originally found this recipe on foodfaithfitness.com where she has a ton of great recipes so go check it out!
This last time I doubled it so make a 9×13 & put them in a freezer to pull out as we need! We LOVE these things!
Here you go:
1 C of peanut butter (preferably natural!)
1 T of honey
1/4 C brown sugar
1 C rolled oats
1/2 C oat flour (simply put 1/2 a cup of oats in a blender for a few seconds and bam! you have oat flour!!)
1/4 C vanilla protein powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 c peanuts chopped (once again I just throw mine in the blender for a split second!)
1 t. vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
3/4 C milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
1/3 C. (mini) chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8×8 dish so you are ready to go!
In a microwave safe bowl heat the peanut butter and tablespoon of honey for about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar to this mixture.
In a bigger bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Then add the vanilla and yolk to the peanut butter mixture. Once that is well combined mix that into the dry ingredient mixture with the milk. Now add the best part, the chocolate chips.
Press it into the pan and bake for 20 minutes.
Try a piece warm…SO GOOD! So far all my batches have been almost cake-like, which I am not exactly sure why, but it tastes good so we don’t care. 🙂 I do cut them into pieces and send with Will in his lunch as a ‘granola bar’ and I enjoy them here at home as well!
Let me know if you like them as much as we do!
