How to make Peanut Butter Cookie Bars Recipe-Healthy snack for kids
To begin making the Peanut Butter Cookie Bars Recipe, blend all the ingredients together until they come together as a crumbly mixture - Oats Flour, Almond Meal, Dates, Peanut Butter, Coconut Oil and Salt.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Add this crumbly oats and peanut butter mixture to it and press down so that they are even. Place this tin in the refrigerator for an hour.
Meanwhile, place a saucepan on high flame with water half way in it. Once the water comes to a boil, place a glass mixing bowl on top and add the dark chocolate chips.
Add in the coconut oil and stir until the chocolate melts. The flame can remain on medium to high so that the chocolate chips melt well. Once all the chocolate has melted, turn off the flame.
After an hour or so, take the oats and peanut mixture out of the fridge. Pour the chocolate mixture on top of the hardened oats and peanut mixture.
Spread the chocolate evenly so that the entire contents of the oats and peanut mixture is covered with the chocolate.
Place the tray back inside the fridge again for another 30 minutes. Once the chocolate has set, cut them into equal sized Peanut Butter bars.
