Peanut Butter Oat Bites

It’s that time of year where my usual ability to jump out of bed on a morning full of energy and excitement for the day disappears. The mornings are getting darker, I’m tired and a little bit fed up of being in the kitchen from wedding cake season, so skipping breakfast for an extra 15 minutes in bed between my nice soft sheets is far more valuable right now.

But we all know how bad skipping breakfast is for us so with that in mind I baked these peanut butter oat bars last night and grabbed one from the box as I ran out of the door, munching away before I even had chance to put my seat belt on.

My son has taken a couple of chunks to school in his packed lunch too.

WHAT DO THEY TASTE LIKE?

Soft but crunchy, moist but smooth and wonderfully nutty with a hint of cocoa and fruit these oat bars are perfect for us Mums on the go. Quickly whip up a batch and breakfast is sorted for the rest of the week.

They took me 10 minutes to bake last night. 5 minutes to prep max. The most difficult part was lining the tin but you could even skip that if you used this magic spray. 😉

The ultimate selling point? All these high-quality ingredients were packed and ready to use as All Things Baked sent me one of their subscription boxes to try. Unwrapping the tissue paper to reveal the contents, I was so excited! I’m used to buying my own ingredients and choosing my own bakes so to bake something that was a complete surprise was a welcome change.

I’m the worst for tinkering with recipes but for this one I stuck to the exact ingredients and quantities, literally followed the recipe card exactly. Easy to follow and understand my oat bites were in our tummies within the hour. That said, you do get enough for two batches so for the second go I swapped the honey for maple syrup, the milk for almond milk and some vegan dark chocolate nibs – you couldn’t tell the difference! Both totally scrummy.

You need one bowl for all your dry ingredients.

One spoon for your peanut butter.

Spoon licking is absolutely compulsory during clean up too.

Smush firmly in your lined tin making sure the mixture goes into each corner.

Bake for the required time and when done make sure you go and distract yourself for 15 minutes or so whilst they cool before chopping into bite-size squares.

They’ll keep for about 4-5 days…good luck with that though.

    They sound delish but unfortunately not conducive to the diet! I’ll have to wait for a cheat day! ;-0

    Nothing last 4-5 days in this household of 4 little people and 2 big people. I’m sure if I made these they would be gone by the end of the day. But this would be a nice healthier alternative for valentine’s day treats, just use a cookie cutter for heart shapes.

    Oh wow this is such a great idea and it sounds simply delicious! I didn’t even know such subscription boxes existed. I might have to look into this for when I am back into work!

    Oh my goodness, these look so amazing! Do you know what these would be great for? A snack before or after a long run! They’re perfect!

    I love the idea of this. I sometimes like making fun healthy snack but do not have the things I need to make it perfect.

    The recipe looks delicious and so easy to make. I like that you can make an entire tray so that you have breakfast ready for every day of the week. It sounds very nutritious as well and full of proteins.

    I’m always searching for such quick recipes that I can prepare the day before so I have healthy snack in the evening. I’m not a morning person at all so I often skip breakfast which is sad because I love having good breakfast. Early mornings are killing me! Thank you for the recipe, I will try it!

    They looks so yummy. Oh well, anything with peanut butter is one of our favorite.

    I just made the mistake of forwarding this to my husband who has now announced that if these aren’t waiting for him when he gets home there will be big trouble, hah! He LOVES peanut butter, I think I’ll make them!

    You’ve made me hungry! Argh! The photos of those golden bars immediately made me hungry. So…I think I’m going to make them over the weekend. And hope they last until Monday.

    Yummy! I love peanut butter! These look and sound delicious!
    Bake box sounds like a great sub box! My two younger children are starting to get more involved in the cooking and I think they’d enjoy this.
    I like to start them cooking young My son recently qualified as a chef having done a long apprenticeship with River Cottage. Very handy 🙂
