Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Hola! I’m skipping out on a nap-time shower today to share this recipe with you fun people, which is a real bummer for all those who have to smell me today because I did the stair master this morning. That machine owns me every single time. Dave is a beast on that machine and the last time I was on it I got a new high score, but my high score was still second to his. Today I was trying my hardest to beat his record on the machine (289 floors) but I just couldn’t do it. So Dave, if you’re reading this – you still have the high score on the stair master, but I’m coming for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m just 100 floors behind you…

Anyways, this recipe is one that I make on repeat in our house so I thought it would be a great one to share on CnC. I got the recipe from my sister (you can read her blog here). Atlas loves these things and I often serve them for breakfast with some fruit and cottage cheese on the side or just serve them up for a grab-n-go snack. They are super easy to make and there’s no baking involved. I wouldn’t call them ‘low-fat’ since there is a lot of peanut butter in them, but they are definitely healthier than 4 handfuls of M&Ms (our other grab-n-go snack). Oh, and I don’t give these to Andi Rose because they do have honey in them and babies aren’t supposed to have honey before they reach 1 year of age.

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

 

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz Peanut Butter
  • 3 Cups Oats (I’ve use Old Fashioned or Quick Cooking – I don’t have a preference)
  • 1 Cup Honey
  • 2 Scoops Juice Plus Complete Powder (Or you could use Shakeology if that’s what you take or whey protein would probably work fine too – & I usually mix the vanilla and chocolate flavors of our Juice Plus powders)
  • Chocolate Chips, to taste (we like a lot of these, obviously)
  • (Sometimes I throw a little flaxseed in the bars too, just depends what I have on hand)
  • Also, around the holidays I will add in different fun flavors (like pumpkin chips during the fall)

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together and then add in chocolate chips and stir until it is well combined (the mixture will be thick). Press into a 13×9 pan (I usually lightly grease mine with Pam) and store in the refrigerator for 1 hour before cutting into squares. Keep these babies in an airtight container in the fridge, preferably on a high shelf so your toddler can’t help themselves to 6 servings at once when you’re not looking. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Toddler Snack

Voila! Easy Breezy.

If you make these and love them as much as we do, be sure to comment and let me know!

Oooh! And last thing: I’m on snap chat now. Well, sort of. I haven’t snap chatted once. But I made an account. Actually I made the account months ago and forgot about it, but I played with it over the weekend and I cannot figure it out for the life of me. How do you follow people? Can you only watch a video one time? What do people even want to see videos of? I think my username is just Ashley Andrews. Or maybe it is ashleyandrews6? I don’t even know. Like I said, I haven’t posted 1 thing yet. So.many.questions. I need a snap chat tutorial for dummies.

Happy hump day, friends!
