So, the light is still not my best friend and I’ve not been able to digitally fix the photos to my satisfaction but I do try to learn each time I take pics for the blog and hope to improve for the next time. I’ve tried some things a bit differently this time and I hope you like them. Please feel free to leave any feedback in the comments.
I’d like to give a big shout out to my amazing friend who has just started a new lifesytle blog The Style Eclectic, she’s got great style, loves to bake, has an amazing eye for interior decor and is very clued up on her health and fitness info. Please do pop over and check her out!
Now lets get down to what I’ve baked this week! These never hang around long in my house, mainly down to my love for peanut butter and me always being hungry. These are great for filling me up, there is no flour, only oats in this recipe and a good amount of peanut butter, so as well as having a little chocolate on top they are very satisfying.
Peanut Butter Oat Bars
275g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
100g peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
350g rolled oats (not quick cook ones)
150g chocolate chips
Prepare a square brownie pan by lining it with baking paper. Mine is 22x22cm.
Melt the butter in a pot on a medium heat. Add sugar.
Add milk, vanilla and peanut butter. Stir until all combined.
Turn up the heat and boil for 4 minutes, continue stirring.
Take off the heat and stir in the oats until all combined.
Spread the mixture evenly in the brownie pan.
Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the mixture.
Within 5 mins the chocolate would have melted and you can spread the chocolate with the back of a spoon.
Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
Enjoy! Please tag me in your pics if you try this recipe #sprinklesinthewild.
