CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER OAT BARS

Hey guys 🙂

If you know me, you know that I am a sweet person and that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day.

Therefore, I am always looking for new healthy vegan breakfast ideas that are quick and easy to make and preferably gluten-free. These chocolate peanut butter oat bars are exactly what I was craving the other day – they are SO good, sweet and satisfying it’s hard to believe they are healthy and refined sugar-free.

I mean, don’t you just want to eat your screen right now? 😉

INGREDIENTS OF MY CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER OAT BARS

Honestly, I didn’t expect these bars to taste so good considering that they don’t contain any oil, vegan butter, refined sugar or gluten (make sure to use gluten-free oats).

Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised when my parents, their mouths full, said “Oh boy! That’s really good!”.

Now, they are very easy to please – especially when there is chocolate involved – but my dad has a big sweet tooth so him loving these refined sugar-free bars is a huge success 🙂

A GREAT ON-THE-GO BREAKFAST/SNACK

These bars are a great healthy and filling on-the-go breakfast or snack idea – you can roll them up in parchment paper or any kind of wrapping you like and take them with you to school, college or work, just like my dad did.

But they also make a great at-home breakfast/snack – my mom will agree on this one! They are very filling and a bit crunchy, and the best part is when you bite on a chocolate chip that melts in your mouth! 😀

    those look awesome!! but i’m not big on using bananas due to the environmental impact – is there something else i could use in place of it?

      Hi Jacquie! You can easily substitute it with apple sauce (50 g). Let me know if you give my recipe a try 🙂
