Hello again! Here is the second breakfast in our “batch breakfast” series and this one has been a big hit (especially for the kids who need something on the go don’t want to eat a big breakfast).
My kids love Perfect Bars, but buying them week after week starts to get pricey! I found this recipe online that are delicious! Please note this is not my personal recipe, but from Erin Lives Whole, go to her blog for the full recipe.
MY PERSONAL NOTES:
✔️I always make a double batch! If I am putting the work in I want to get a lot of them.
✔️Recipe calls for oat flour and I subbed almond because that’s what I had (I get it at Costco for a great price). If you have neither oat flour or almond flour, I have heard from a lot of you that you can just blend up whole rolled oats and it’s the same thing! I would not use regular flour though, it would completely change the taste and you shouldn’t eat flour raw.
✔️I used natural Peanut Butter (the kind you have to stir; also from Costco) and while I think you could use any PB, I think this made the whole batch easier to stir since the PB isn’t as thick.
They keep in the fridge for 4-5 days!
✔️I used Aloha moment vanilla protein power (it’s what I use In my smoothies) and it does add the slightest vanilla taste but I think it makes them even better; like a touch of vanilla extract. I do think if you didn’t want to use protein power or didn’t have it you could easily leave it out.
✔️I put a small lining of parchment paper in the bottom of my pan and made it super easy to lift out the bars and cut. I then used this same parchment piece to separate my bars in the Tupperware.
✔️I cut some bars to be normal size and some to be snack size and loved having the freedom to cut to whatever size I wanted.
You could also definitely freeze these. I haven’t yet because our family goes through them so fast!
Let me know if you try these and what you/your family thinks!
