Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola Bars
Meanwhile, the quest for truly vegan protein […]. The name is way too long. Sabrina Brady — March 19, I used vanilla whey powder, no cocoa, extra vanilla. But over the past two years, January has turned into the most popular time of year on the blog by a landslide. Hayley Gimme Some Oven — October 8, I agree with Wayne on the flavors - I'd like to try.
Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Energy Bites (Naturally Sweetened)
On my last haul I picked up two jars of Kirkland organic peanut butter. Matt and I struggle with making time for breakfast in the morning, especially on the weekdays. We are usually in a rush and like to have grab and go items. No bake bars are the absolute best because they are so easy. How is that for time saving? This combination of nutrients will help keep you full and satisfied. Oats are a great source of protein , which you might not have guessed.
These bars are the best way to get your oats on the go if you happen to forget to prep your overnight oats. If you want a vegan version of this bar, swap out the honey and use vegan chocolate chips. Are you obsessed with peanut butter? Loooove me some oats. Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods, and I usually eat it from the jar. Love homemade granola bars. SO great for breakfast. The perfect flavor combination!
Love it when a few simple ingredients come together and make for a delicious and healthy treat! Any questions - shoot me an email at jennifer. Hi Julie — That would be a whole lot of calories, but that would also be a ginormous bar! I honestly cut them way smaller and use them as a quick snack. I love to wrap them up and freeze them and grab them on my way out the door, or if I need something quick between meals.
The bars I make are probably about calories still, but a small one is all I need for breakfast. Do you cut them in half after cutting them into the 9 bars? I cut them really small and wrap them up and freeze them. I probably get more like 18 in real life! You said five ingredients, but in the text directions, you only added four. You forgot to say when to add the chocolate chips! Thanks for catching that and letting me know, Marie Anne!
I just bought my 1st container of Wow Butter. Did it turn out for you? Just made these today and I love them! Perfect for a quick snack at work. My son has peanut allergy so I used Wild Friends almond butter and they turned out great. Thank you for sharing an easy recipe that works, tastes great, and is easy to clean up! I just made these. I added a little dash of flax seed meal and chia seed to the oatmeal mixture.
I thought they were decadent and almost like peanut butter halvah. My 6 and 8 year old boys liked the first bite, and then complained it was too peanut-buttery. Thank you so much for the recipe! Do you think you could sub the honey for maple syrup? These look amazing, but we are allergic to honey. I am allergic to honey also. My recipes say to try karo syrup instead of honey. It is thicker than maple syrup. Hi Kathleen — I have not actually tried that — but if you do, let me know if it works!!!
I have a daughter with type one and I love to make things but hard to figure out the carbs when I do what would u think one bar would be and if there is fibre. Unfortunately I do not have the calculations! Hey Michelle, You might try a recipe analyzer for you potential recipes. I just made these and used organic peanut butter and did not get the results I expected. Instead of reaching the melting point and staying there it went back into pasty peanut butter state, which does not mix well with the oats.
My assumption is that non-organic has some other type of oil in the ingredients while organic is just peanuts and sea salt. I ended up adding coconut oil and melting the chocolate chips into the PB then I added the oats. It mixed a little easier this way and formed pretty well in the pan. So I just googled a calorie and nutrition calculator.
You put in all the ingredients and it calculates it all out. These are high in calories, sugar and fat, but you can adjust the ingredients a bit. I want to see if I can try a few different things. I am adding sunflower seeds, cranraisins, flaxseed. I love all the textures. If so did you adjust the oats at all? Also have you used anything other than honey? Would love to know how it works for you! I made these to take on our canping trip this past weekend I did change the recipe a little buy they were so yummy.
My family felt they were a little to sweet so next time I will cut back on it. Your email address will not be published.
