Crispy, chewy, rich and delicious peanut butter, chocolate chips and rolled oats come together in one healthy bar. Perfect for breakfast or anytime you want an energizing snack.
Three of the most popular cookie recipes combined into one crunchy and delicious granola bar, that’s what you get when you make these vegan peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip granola bars.
These are for the times when you can’t make up your mind, or you have requests for all three types of cookies but you only have the time and/or energy to make one. That’s where the inspiration for these healthy bars came from. All the voices in my crazy head wanted all three cookies, and I just couldn’t make up my mind, so I made all three in one fabulous little package.
My peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip granola bars are a peanut butter cookie, and oatmeal walnut cookie, and a chocolate chip cookie all rolled pressed into one protein and high fiber packed treat that you can feel good about eating.
HOMEMADE OAT BARS ARE BETTER THAN STORE BOUGHT

- One half of a cup of peanut butter provides you with- 64% protein, 40% vitamin B-6, and 48% magnesium.
What more can you ask for in something that tastes like dessert, but is a nutritious power house?
Pack these in your kids’ lunch box, make them and after school snack, take them with you when you’re on the road, or eat one after a workout as a recover treat. The possibilities are endless.
