It's time again for The Secret Recipe Club reveal! It gets so exciting, doesn't it? Amanda was the one who kicked things off with the whole thing! Tina from Mom's Crazy Cooking is helping out for Group B.
This month I am paired up with Averie from Love Veggies and Yoga. She has an awesome blog with tons of healthy foods! Healthy AND super delicious I should say! I saved several recipes. I've already made the Banana Brulee Oats and she has a bunch of other oatmeal recipe I want to try!
These oat bars were awesome. They kids loved them and we ate them all the first day. These will be made again and again!
Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bars
Adapted from Love Veggies and Yoga
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter, I used chunky
1/3 cup milk, 1%
1 1/2 cup oats, quick cooking
1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. splenda
1/4 cup pecan halves, rough chopped
1 tbsp. flaxseed meal
Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and milk in the microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring and checking. Once melted and stirred together, add the rest of the ingredients. You want this to be fairly dry, if it's not dry enough, add more oats one tablespoon at a time.
Press mixture into an 8 x 8 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until cooled and firm. Cut into 10 slices. You could also roll into balls as well for a finger snack.
I put it through Sparkpeople.com recipes and these are the stats that I came up with.
