Oats Peanut Bars - Healthy & Tasty Breakfast Bars

I have troubles in publishing.....everytime I try its not updating in my reader...only when I publish a test post along with the orginal post it gets updated....I'm trying to figure out what the issue is till then kindly bear with me.Also if you have any suggestions to rectify this issue do leave in a comment.

I thought I should have a post marked on this day :) so here goes the healthy tasty breakfast bars.I Oats is my fav.....I try to add them in most of my baking experiments. One such experimented bars were these and it turned out super success that I made them 2-3 times after that.
Oats Peanut Bars Recipe
Honey coated oats with peanuts is such a nice combination. These are very tasty bars with a additional tag of healthy...so do give a try and enjoy ur breakfast bars.

Ingredients:
  • Oats - 2 cups [I used Quaker] Here my 1 cup measures 100gms
  • Sugar - 2 tbsp
  • Butter - 1.5 tbsp
  • Honey - 1/4 cup
  • Peanuts - a handful
Method:
  1. Just melt the butter by heating it in low flame, switch off. Now add sugar and honey mix well.

  2. Add in the oats, and peanuts, mix till all is combined well.

  3. Grease a tray or cake pan with butter or ghee. Pre-heat the oven to 180c / 350F.

  4. Spread the oats peanuts mixture evenly on the tray. The thickness of the bars is purely ur choice....I wanted mine a little thinner so spreaded a thin layer.

  5. With a help of the backside of the spoon press them firmly to make it even on all sides. Sprinkle little sugar on top...this is optional but gives a nice taste in every bite.

  6. Bake them for 13-15 mins at 180c or till the oats get baked to golden colour.

  7. Keep a close eye watch after 10mins, as they tend to get burnt easily. Remove from the oven and immediately mark slices over the oats because once it gets cooled down its hard to mark pieces.

  8. Allow it to cool down for 30 mins atleast. Now break along the marked slices and enjoy ur breakfast bars. Cool and store them in air tight container.

Oats Peanut Bars Recipe

My Notes :
  • If you want thick bars, the baking time will definitely differ, it may take 5-10 mins extra but keep an eye after 15mins.

  • The slices should be carefully marked as soon as the bars are removed from oven else they would become firm making it tough to mark slices.

  • Dont omit the butter, as this is the main ingredient which gives the crispness.
  • When kept in a airtight container the crispness of the bars retains for about a week.

These are crispy bars which are mildly sweet, you can adjust the sweetness accordingly. These are easy and quick to make on the go bars.

  26. Lovely Bars Sharmi!....i too love anything with oats!...
    BTW, regarding ur problem, r u using blogger thingie to post ur recipes?..Cos blogger always comes with the weirdest of problems every once in a while and it gets sorted by itself, if not soon later without doing anything to it. LOng back, i was not able to comment on many (almost all) blogs using IE. But i cud comment using mozilla. Another issue i had was - once when i tried publishing using mozilla, only half of the stuff got published, no pictures and the funniest part is when i view in Internet Explorer, i cud see my post and when i view it in Mozilla, it was all scrambled!!!!!Sometimes i wont be able to post my pics and so many mad things as such. All i can suggest u is try changing ur browser to Mozilla or google chrome if using IE and vice versa.....Hope everything get sorted soon.

  27. @Shabs : Thanks for ur suggestion...Yes I am using blogger for posting and use google chrome as my browser....never used IE in the recent days....Let me try with mozilla next time.
