Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sprouted Oat Bars
Imagine a peanut butter cookie and a blondie having a wholesome, sprouted baby.
- 2 ½ cups Second Spring Organic Sprouted Oat Flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup smooth natural peanut butter
- 3 tbsp cold unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8” square baking pan with parchment paper.
Combine oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until incorporated.
Add the dry mixture to the wet and mix until a stiff dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.
Add the dough to the parchment lined pan and press it firmly and evenly into the bottom. You can press a few additional chocolate chips into the top for extra pretty bars, but it's optional.
Bake 12-15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool before cutting.
Extra delicious when served slightly warm - heat in the microwave for a few seconds until the chocolate chips are just starting to melt.
Once completely cool, store in an airtight container at room temperature.
