Story time:

This all started with my favorite coffee shop: Echo in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Now, when I say they have the best coffee I’ve ever had, it’s no joke. I never joke about good coffee.

But, what really blew me away this last visit? They added vegan options to their pastry case!

Woot woot!

Nothing is worse than sipping on a delicious coffee and having nothing to munch on.

So, what happened?

I bought one of these “peanut butter bars”, it looked like it would hold me over until lunch.

Oh, boy, was I underestimating the deliciousness of these babes.

One bite and they grabbed me by the soul.

Did they know peanut butter + chocolate is my kryptonite?

But, something else spoke to me:

The texture of the bars were unlike anything I’d tried before. The oats added a delicious fall-apart-feeling that only added to the delicious, almost fudge-like peanut butter.

There was only one thing to do: 

Recreate these babes at home!

A Peanut Butter Oat Bar Recipe to Rule Them All!

Well, ladies and gents… I would call this a: “Major Fucking Success”

I would even argue that my bars were better than the coffee shop.. No really!

These bars:

  • Fall apart in your mouth,
  • Have a whopping 10g of protein per serving,
  • Don’t contain any refined sugar, and
  • Are perfectly sweet, without being overwhelming

This peanut butter oat bar is my new go-to breakfast meal. I love that I can make a huge batch that will last me the whole week! (Although, I totally scarfed them all down in one day 🙊)

That being said, I won’t judge if you make these for dessert. We don’t discriminate here!
