A sweet, make-ahead snack that the whole family will love, these 21 Day Fix approved Oat Bars will satisfy your chocolate craving!
Ok, so I love this recipe. I’m about to rattle off why, so bear with me.
It’s quick. It’s easy. You can make it ahead and eat the bars all week. It makes a great “dessert” or an any-time snack. I’ve also been known to eat one of these while I’m procrastinating cooking my eggs. With only a bowl and a fork, you can get these in the pan in under 5 minutes. My kids LOVE them (and call them brownies, btw). Oh, and one decent-sized bar only uses 1/2 of a yellow, 1/2 of a purple and a teaspoon. Have I convinced you to make these wonderful things yet?
Well, did I also mention that they taste pretty great, too?! They’re chewy and chocolate-y and fantastic. You can thank me later 🙂
Not to mention that these bars are going to be a mom’s best friend when school starts back up. I’ll definitely be making and freezing them (well, I haven’t tried to freeze them yet, but once I do I’ll update this post and let you guys know how they freeze!) so they’ll be ready for school lunches. I LOVE having stuff like this on hand for my kids – low sugar, healthy, with amazing ingredients. It doesn’t get any better than this! Plus, my girls still feel like they’re getting a treat, even when all of the other kids are eating Little Debbies. Don’t get me wrong, I love a Little Debbie as much as the next girl (and have been known to partake from time to time – shh! don’t tell!) but it’s definitely not something I’d want to have (or my kids to have) on a regular basis. And why should they, when there are so many other wonderful things to give them?
I swear, I’m not even being a Pinterest mom here. It’s not like I’m folding origami for their lunches or anything. These are so quick and easy, plus they use ingredients that you (yes, you!) most likely have in your cabinet and fridge right now. Hope you like them as much as we do!
