Like I’ve said before, I have a weird obsession with anything that has peanut butter in it. Oatmeal is a close second. SO…you can expect to see lots of recipes with it because it’s just what we prefer around here. 🙂
We had these for the first time last week, made by the lovely Katie. I’m not going to lie…my kitchen was a mess by the time she was done! Patience or they’ll never learn, right?! I was happy she wanted to make them so I guess it was worth it!
I was unsure how they would turn out since it was a new recipe I’d created, but they turned out perfectly!
What I LOVED about these whole grain, soft bars is how my sweet tooth was completely satisfied without having the refined sugars that most desserts have. Especially while pregnant, I get a headache whenever I have refined sugar (white, brown, powdered, etc.) It’s so weird, and some people might even think it’s a terrible thing, but it’s actually been a blessing because I’ve felt healthier because of it. And believe me, I am not going without sugars. I simply avoid the highest processed sugars and feel SO much better because of it. Everyone in our family does.
I also LOVED eating them warm, dipped in cold milk. Ok…I’m drooling over here now. 😛
Let me know how you like them if you give them a go OR even better, share them with a friend!
