Oat Bars

When I was pregnant with my son, I was addicted to these. I kept telling myself they are healthy, they have All Bran in them. Well they also have a ton of butter and sugar, not to mention peanut butter and chocolate chips. Give them a try.
Oat Bars

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 c. brown sugar

1 cup peanut butter

3/4 cup butter, softened

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup All Bran

3 1/2 cups Quick Cook Oats

1 cup peanuts

12 oz chocolate chips

Beat eggs, add sugars and peanut butter & butter and mix until well blended. Mix in baking soda and vanilla. Add All Bran and Oats and mix until combined. Add peanuts and chocolate chips. Pour in pan ( i use metal 15/9) and bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes. Middle will still be slightly jiggly.

Let them cool completely before cutting.

  1. can you substitute anything for the allbran?

  2. I have never tried to, but i am sure you could just add more oats.
