Peanut Butter Oat Bar

January, 2020

These are the best grab-and-go snack! Super easy to make and a great addition to your lunchbox.

Peanut Butter Oat Bar

Makes 12 bars

Ingredients

  • 8 dried dates

  • 1 tbs boiling water

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter

  • ¼ cup coconut oil

  • 1 tbs honey

  • ¼ cup milk of choice

  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats

  • ½ cup self-raising flour

  • 2 tbs chia seeds

  • 40g dark chocolate with 2 tsp peanut butter for sauce

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°c

  2. Line a small baking dish with baking paper

  3. Soak dates in a small bowl with water for a few minutes

  4. In a small pan, add peanut butter, oil, milk and honey. Stir over medium heat until melted

  5. Add oats, flour and chia seeds in a mixing bowl, stir and make a well in the centre

  6. Pour wet ingredients into the well, add the dates and mix to combine

  7. Transfer into the baking dish and press down firmly

  8. Bake for 20 minutes then set aside to cool

  9. Melt chocolate with peanut butter and drizzle over the loaf (tip: I melt the chocolate and peanut butter in a bowl and then transfer to a square of cling film. Twist to close and then at the bottom pierce a very small hole with the tip of a knife and voila, you have a piping bag!)

  10. Slice into 12 bars. Keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
