Coach Nicole's Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Submitted by: COACH_NICOLE

Introduction

Low in sugar and with just a hint of chocolate, enjoy this chewy goodness for only 150 calories per bar!

Still experimenting with this recipe I created to get the perfect combo of PB and chocolate. (This variation has very little chocolate flavor.) I'll keep working with it and edit the recipe once I get the ratio just right.

Ingredients

    2 cups oats (any kind, I use thick-cut)
    1 cup quick cook oats
    1/4 tsp salt (optional)
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    1/4 cup skim milk (or non-dairy milk alternative)
    1/3 cup honey
    2 Tbsp canola oil
    1/3 cup natural peanut butter


Directions

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F.

Process 2 cups rolled oats in blender or food processor until they become flour-like. Mix "oat flour" with dry ingredients in a bowl.

Add all wet ingredients (except peanut butter) to the dry mixture and stir until well combined.

Add peanut butter and mix well.

Spray a small baking dish (about 5 inches x 12 inches, or similar) with non-stick cooking spray. Add mixture to the dish, pressing it down with a spatula. With a knife, cut the whole sheet into 18 bars. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until edges of bars are lightly browned. Let cool, cut again, and store in an air-tight container for up to one week.

  • Awesome! I actually used 1/4 honey (and forgot the maple syrup), and they were still good. I'm going to try adding raisins to a batch, too. Good treat for my kids' lunches! - 4/16/11
