Oatmeal Peanut Butter (Flour!) Chocolate Chip Bars

Posted Sep 09 2010 7:00am

Hi guys! How are you doing? After all the traveling I did last week, it has felt SO good to get back in the kitchen to bake & cook!  I got my bake on last night for sure. I made vegan pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for wonderful friends of mine:

I also finally experimented with my Trader Joe’s Peanut flour that my MIL sent me:

Since I always love mixing up my bar recipes, I decided to test this flour out first in an Oatmeal Peanut Butter (flour) Chocolate Chip Bar:

Ingredients:

  • 2  1/4 cups old fashion rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds (raw)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (or applesauce- unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs or egg substitute

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together dry ingredients (first six). Add in wet ingredients and stir until combined. Spray pan (I used a Pyrex dish), press mixture into bottom of pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes. Let the bars cool completely, cut & serve.

These taste like those no bake peanut butter/chocolate cookies! So yum.

Also of note, we had our first spaghetti squash of the “fall” last night! Josh had his topped with homemade turkey meatballs, cheese and marinara. I had mine topped with cheese, marinara and black beans. YUM!

And for your workout Wednesday (Thursday), here is my plan for the week:

  • Monday: Ran 6 miles outside
  • Tuesday:  Taught Body Attack
  • Wednesday:  Ran 6 miles outside
  • Thursday: Teach 45 minute Body Step & 45 minute Body Pump
  • Friday:  Off
  • Saturday:  Teach Body Step
  • Sunday:  Off

How are your workouts coming? And what is your favorite kind of squash? I love them all…but I think Acorn is my favorite.
