• Peanut Buttery Bars

    June 17, 2009

    Holy peanut butter!

    These soft and chewy bars are jam-packed with peanut buttery flavor. They’re also a tad on sweet side thanks to a healthy portion of agave nectar. The old fashioned oats give the bars a nice, thick texture.

    The best part about these Peanut Buttery Bars is that they only require 5 ingredients (chocolate chips optional) and take just 20 minutes to make- start to finish.

    Makes 12 bars

    Ingredients:

    • 1.5 cups old fashioned oats
    • 1/2 all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup agave nectar
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

    Directions:

    • Preheat oven to 350*F degrees. Spray 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine ingredients until smooth.
    • Spread batter in prepared baking pan, and bake for approximately 15-18 minutes until the top of the bars begin to brown.
    • Let bars cool completely in pan before cutting.

    Each bar has approximately 137 calories (without chocolate chips).


    Spring it!

    These look like a great replacement for my favorite dessert: Peanut Butter Cornflake Bars. My recipe calls for lots of corn syrup and corn flakes. I’m thinking old fashioned oats and agave nectar are a better idea!

    Love your book, btw. I’m working my way through your recipes. The granola is a hit – I like to eat it in a bowl as a topping to one tablespoon of peanut butter and sliced bananas. Oh my. Your Mediterranean salad is simple and delicious, too. Thank you!
