Peanut Butter Bars

Peanut Butter Bars with chocolate

A favourite snack in my household at the moment is peanut butter spread on apple and sprinkled with a variety of delicious bits and bobs. I was getting bored of making this though so I decided to mix it up a bit and get a bit more goodness in there. This is where I introduced peanut butter bars. Not overly sweet but these can still pass as a treat and are satisfyingly filling. Better still – no bake! These are quick and easy to whip together as a last minute snack. Those of you with magic powders (kids veggie powders, protein powders etc) can easily hide these away in this.

Peanut Butter Bars

Ingredients

1 ½ cups rolled oats

3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Method

  1. Blend your rolled oats into a flour.
  2. Mix your oats, rice bubbles, peanut butter, syrup and vanilla together into a thick paste.
  3. Spread your mixture into a lined pan and pat down smooth with the back of a spoon.
  4. Pop in the fridge or freezer to set.
  5. Cut your set mixture into bars.
  6. Melt your chocolate and coconut oil and drizzle over the top of your bars. This is the funnest part!
  7. Once your chocolate is set (you can put it in your fridge to speed this process up) re-cut your bars and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

These are morishly good with a slightly gooey texture but with a bit of crunch from the rice bubbles. They are a bit sweet, a bit salty. A bit good a bit bad.  They really are the best of both worlds, just try them for yourself and see.
