Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Oat Bars that are packed with peanut butter for some extra protein. Perfect grab and go breakfast, or snack.

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

I totally made you the easiest breakfast/snack food ever.

Combining two of my favourite things: oat bars and peanut butter!!

Yeah, I know I have about 50 bazillion favourite things. But grab and go breakfasts will always top the list. As I am sure it does for many of you who are almost too busy for breakfast.

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

These bars are just as easy to make as they are to eat. Just mix it all up in one bowl, dump it into a large baking pan, cut into squares and bam. Breakfast and snacks for days.

Or like, two days in my two person household. Where I snack wayy too often, and my other half loves oat bars more than any other thing I make.

I know, right? What a weirdo.

But I can't really argue about these bars. They have just the right amount of chew, just the right amount of sweetness.. and don't get me STARTED on peanut butter! This is my alternative to scooping peanut butter straight from the jar and shoving it in my mouth.

And MUCH better than those flavourless, overpriced oat bars from Starbucks. Don't get me wrong, I love that place. I go there at LEAST twice a week, and have had basically everything on their menu at least once, but I just can't stand their oat bars.

So from now on, I think I will be bringing in some of these bars when I go to my local coffee shop to buy a drink. Too bad I can't bring these to school. I will need to try to perfect a peanut butterless version soon. Or, just save these for when I am home.
