Peanut Butter and Chocolate Oat Bars


IMG_9473

I was bored.

I had quick oats in my pantry from my days of eating healthy *snort*.

I opened allrecipes.com

I entered in “quick oats” as an ingredient to use.

And I found this recipe. Seriously, a much better use of quick oats than the flax-seed-no-sugar-applesauce-don’t-pretend-you’re-a-cookie cookies I originally bought them for.

Melt the butter and brown sugar.

Stir in the oats.20140423-231457.jpg

Then pack half of it down into a pan.20140423-231504.jpg

I love this.  Melt the peanut butter and chocolate.20140423-231510.jpg

And pour it on top of the bottom layer of oats.20140423-231534.jpg

And because I love coconut and happened to have some on hand, I didn’t think it’d be a bad idea to toss some of those in a bit.   The more the merrier, right?20140423-231541.jpg

Top the chocolate with the second half of the buttery oat mixture and oat it down. And like the recipe suggests, you just chill these until they firm up where you can cut them into squares.  20140423-231547.jpg

Nice.  Give these bars a try, be happy you saved a bit of electricity for not turning on your oven, and enjoy!
