Tomorrow is my boss’s birthday. I know he loves chocolate and peanut butter so I thought I cannot go wrong with this combination.
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt kosher
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar,unpacked
1/4 cup egg substitute
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Foil line a 13 by 9 inch glass dish. Spray with cooking spray.
Place oats, flours, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix with spoon to incorporate.
In a separate bowl beat together canola oil, applesauce, peanut butter, and both sugars.
Add egg substitute and vanilla.
Beat to incorporate.
Add chocolate chips and fold into batter.
Place the batter into the lined pan.
Spread the batter evenly. Place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
Cut into 36 bars. Enjoy with your favorite milk skim or vanilla almond.
