Almond Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
The other night I made my Chicken Shawarma Salad, and I knew Steve would love it, but he would still be hungry afterwards! I decided to surprise him and have these beauties come out of the oven after we finished dinner, and boy was he excited!!
I absolutely love oatmeal and chocolate together, and these bars absolutely elevated those flavors with the addition of almond butter. The oats and oat flour combined with the almond butter gave the bars a great balance of texture and flavor, and I’m a big dark chocolate fan!
This recipe made an 8×8 pan, and it was the perfect sweet bite after a healthy dinner. Life’s all about balance right?
