I've got a good one for you today!

I've made two batches and I'm currently eating one as I type.  I haven't even mentioned how easy they are.  Long story short, you guys have been asking for healthy, slightly sweet bites to get you through your days without giving you much guilt.

This one is for you!

Whether you're working outside of the home, stay at home or just work from home {like me!} these bars will come in handy.

Do you meal prep on Sunday?

I'm trying to get better at it - really trying - this week I made my energy balls and my 2-ingredient everything bagels.  Pretty good for the gal who rarely does much! When I do make time for it, I find my week goes just a bit better.  Plus, my kids love it, as they reap the benefits when the cupboards and fridge is fill.

Under-appreciated work, I tell ya.

I was recently sent a container of PBfit, which I've used many times before - in smoothies and as a dip - and I just knew I wanted to incorporate this peanut butter powder into a bar.

There are just three ingredients - peanuts, coconut palm sugar and salt.  That's it!  If you're watching your fat intake {or counting weight watcher points} PBfit will stretch more than regular full fat peanut butter {not shaming that stuff - still love it dearly}.  Feel free to order some for yourself HERE.

If not, just swap in 3 tablespoons of regular creamy peanut butter - but note the nutritional value will shift.

These bars are also filled with oats, flaxseed, an egg, mashed bananas, a little pure maple syrup and cinnamon.  Plus, a few mini chocolate chips for good measure.  They are completely optional, but they make the bar in my opinion.

If you are looking for a "cake-like" bar, these aren't it.  They are more chewy, wet and moist {sorry!} and taste great straight out of the fridge.  

In fact, I recommend keeping them cold in the fridge.  Let's be honest, they won't last long.  My kids snatched them up real quick out of the fridge after school.

You've gotta put these on your "list to make soon".  And hey, want to throw in some dried cranberries?  Go for it.  Eliminate the mini chocolate chips?  You won't hurt my feelings.  Keep the batter the same, and they always work out.

I can't wait to hear what you think of these!

  1. I think everyone already knows how full spectrum cbd capsules https://www.cornbreadhemp.com/products/full-spectrum-cbd-capsules has a positive effect on our health, at least cannabidiol does not cause addiction, unlike weed. Even if you do not have any problems, then you can take it in small doses for prevention. But if you have problems such as headaches, feeling unwell or insomnia, then this remedy will perfectly cope with your problem!

  2. Love this recipe! Easy to make, delicious and healthy
