Runners Oatmeal Bars

runnersbars

This is one of those recipes I concocted when my husband and I were training for a marathon and have been making ever since then. They disappear quickly! You can add chocolate chips, seeds, dates or other dried fruit and even shredded coconut. I never make it the same way twice. I have never written down the recipe but this is close…

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter or light butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 3/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons Ground Flax
  • Pumpkin seeds  (optional)
  • 1 very ripe mashed banana (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a medium saucepan combine butter, brown sugar and peanut butter and simmer until butter smooth. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Press into an 8 x 8 non stick pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Cool and cut into bars.
