Healthy almond butter oatmeal chocolate chip barsI wanted to satisfy my craving for a baked good that I didn’t have to feel guilty about eating. I poured through some recipes for cookies with almond butter, but then I thought bars are just so much easier and I’m all about easy. After looking at so many recipes I just made up my own here with what sounded good and healthy.

The almond butter gives these bars a different nutty taste as compared to peanut butter. I liked these bars and ate them for breakfast and as a snack. As usual because I thought they are made with healthy ingredients (minus the chocolate) I ate way too many at one time to be called healthy. I hope you try these bars out when your looking for something a little sweet but on the healthy side as well. Enjoy 🙂
