In the kitchen: chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookie bars


On Sunday I was in the mood to bake. I ate decently well all weekend (cocktails don’t count, right?) and felt like I deserved something sweet, which led me to Pinterest.

I found this recipe for Idiot Proof Healthy Dark Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Bars on Half Baked Harvest, an amazing food blog whose pictures put mine to shame. I mean, she has a recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookie cereal РI know this will not be the first recipe i make from this blog.

These cookie bars are “healthy” because of the oatmeal, dark chocolate and coconut oil instead of butter. I’ll take it. Plus I added peanut butter to the recipe, which is always a good thing. They really were idiot proof and only took me about 15 minutes to throw everything together. You can find the full recipe here.
