Triple t(h)reat bar
4 cups oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar (I used sucanat )
2/3 cup melted butter, plus more for greasing pan (I used EB)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup corn syrup (I used agave nectar, molasses and maple syrup)
1 (12-ounce) bag chocolate chips (semi – sweet)
2/3 cup chunky peanut butter (I used creamy then added whole peanuts and lightly added salt before putting on the chocolate )
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Butter a 9 by 13 inch pan. In a large bowl, mix the oatmeal, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and corn syrup. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes.
For the Frosting: Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler and melt. Mix well. Spread on baked and cooled cookie bars. Refrigerate until frosting hardens.
Cut into bars.
Get it? Triple Threat or Triple Treat? He's clever. Anyway, go make some badass pasta and finish it off with a decadent oatmeal peanut butter chocolate bar. You might gain a couple pounds, but it's cold outside. You need more padding.
So this is the end of Vegan Mofo, huh? I'm pretty proud of my posting this month. I learned that I really love to blog and I love sharing my ideas with the world at large and getting some totally awesome ideas in return. Thanks for coming along on the ride with me, guys!
