Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Filling, Healthy and Satisfying!

I have a weakness for a great homemade oat bar. I don't like them sweet but prefer a satisfying bar with plenty of chew. We all know the traditional flap jack is loaded with sugar and butter and for those of you looking for a healthy snack bar, here is a great recipe I tried yesterday and it worked out very well.... (so much so I had to freeze them as the hand was returning to the container of bars a little too often yesterday evening!). 

The bars are moist and filling as they are packed with eggs, oats, coconut and nut butter.

 

Ingredients


 

300grams oats
200grams of peanut butter (100% peanuts)
150 grams wholewheat flour
150grams desiccated coconut
3 eggs
3 tablespoons honey
Enough milk to make into a wet dough that can be made into balls

Makes 15-20 balls

Approx. 10 grams of protein per ball 


 

Method


Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Mix all ingredients together with hands. 

Drop a good tablespoon of dough onto a baking tray (or shape into a ball with hands) lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until pale golden brown at edges.
