These are the perfect snack for school time. Easy to whip together and tastes way better than granola bars.
These have been around for a while and are not a new thing, but have you tried them? They are so adaptable to your family’s taste preference. These have become our favorite snack for summer time and school days. This recipe is perfect because they also freeze great too! Go ahead and quadruple the batch. You will be glad you did!
Our favorite way is just with the chocolate chips but you can use some cocoa powder or add some dried fruit or even nuts. Here are some flavor combos you can try
cocoa powder with apricots
pretzels and almonds
raisins and pecans
peanuts and m&m’s
coconut and chocolate chips
The options are really limitless. If you don’t have honey then use maple syrup. Also, you can use all oatmeal if you don’t have ground flax seed.
( If you use cocoa powder use about 2 tablespoons )
1 cup oats
1/2 cup ground flax
1/2 cup peanut butter ( almond or sunflower work too)
1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup chocolate chips or any add ins you like!
1. In a blender or food processor chop up oatmeal. Add in the ground flax, peanut butter and honey.
2. Process until mixture is soft but not sticky ( you may have to add more peanut butter )
3. Stir in the chia seeds and chocolate chips or any add ins you like!
4. Store in the refrigerator for around a week and you can even freeze some for later.
