Clean Eating Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Since Girls on the Run of Las Vegas is all about teaching the girls healthy living and confidence and self-esteem, through running activities, I decided my next after-lesson snack needed to be as healthy as possible. So, this time I baked clean eating bars with extra nutrition (from chia seeds) that the girls would never notice.

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup organic, natural chunky peanut butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup organic chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spritz a 9x13 baking pan with non-stick buttery spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats and chia seeds.
  • Add agave nectar and mix.
  • Add melted peanut butter and combine until moistened.
  • If the dough is dry, add more melted peanut butter or agave nectar until you reach the right consistency.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spoon into baking pan and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Let cool and slice into bars.
