Last night, my husband and I were debating what to do when he mentioned trying out a new dessert recipe together. I agreed and started exploring on Pinterest when I came across this recipe on the Live Well Bake Often blog. One of the ingredients was peanut butter so of course my husband was more than excited!
I changed up one or two things from the original recipe but the bars turned out to be rather delicious!
- 1/2 cup peanut better (creamy)
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 oz applesauce
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together peanut butter, egg, vanilla, brown sugar, honey, and applesauce until fully combined. Then it’s time to add the oats, flour, and baking soda. Mix it all until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread the batter into a greased 8×8 in baking pan. Place it in the oven for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown on top. Let the pan cool then cut and enjoy!
