{NEW} Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chewy Bars 🍪🍪🍪
{ These chewy bars are an FUN weekend project to make with the kids! Super YUM, and great to have on hand! The “sweetness factor” can be adjusted by adding more or less honey/maple syrup since it’s such a personal preference!

I wrap mine in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
These store great in the freezer too!
( lasts in the fridge for 2 weeks, or freezer for 2 months.)
Puffed quinoa is available at the health food stores, or Amazon.
.
makes 8 servings

Ingredients:
1.5 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup puffed quinoa (I found mine on Amazon)
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup raisins, golden raisins, or dried cranberries
2 Tbsps unrefined coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 Tbsp melted dark chocolate, to drizzle over (optional but definitely recommend)

Instructions:

In a large bowl, combine oats, puffed quinoa, almond flakes and raisins.
Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a small saucepan, stir together coconut oil, maple syrup/honey, peanut butter and vanilla. Heat over low heat just until it starts bubbling, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat pour over the oat mixture and stir until well combined.
Once cool enough you can even get your hands in there to get these ingredients incorporated really well!

You might have to add a couple of tablespoons of water to make the mixture stick together.

Place this mixture into your prepared pan and gently, but firmly press into the pan evenly, making sure to reach the corners.

Refrigerate overnight.

Cut into 8 bars and drizzle with melted chocolate as shown.

I wrap mine in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
These store great in the freezer too!
