Peanut Butter Oat Bars

October 14, 2010 at 4:13 pm Leave a comment

I’ve been searching for a relatively easy, relatively healthy bar recipe for some time. This one is inspired by Working Class Foodies. I splurged a bit and used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao chips and it made a big difference in the richness of bar. I’m going to switch it up a little next time and try this recipe with fruit jam instead of peanut butter.

3/4 cup oats
3/4 cup mix-ins (chopped nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips)
1/2 cup peanut butter (I like the all natural kind)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 300°

Combine peanut butter, honey, sugar, oil, water, and cinnamon in a pan and heat until soft
cool slightly, whisk in egg
add oats and any mix-in combination
coat oats completely with peanut butter mixture
pour into a lightly buttered 9 x 9 baking dish
bake 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean

Cool completely before cutting into bars
