Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars
Makes 16 small bars
½ cup creamy all-natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons butter, melted or coconut oil, melted
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole rolled oats (not instant)
¾ cup white whole wheat flour
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 F. Line a small casserole or 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, honey, butter, egg, and vanilla. Add oats, flour, salt, and baking soda and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. The dough at this point is more like play dough than cake batter. It is very sticky. Spread dough onto parchment paper and bake for 15-18 minutes until lightly browned.
Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes until slicing into portions. Store for up to one week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
