Although the first day of summer isn’t until Thursday, it sure has felt like summer!!! We thought an “oven-free” recipe would be the perfect way to kick of this season! Keep your house cool with this week’s Twisted Tuesday recipe, Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola Bars, featuring our Butter EVOO and Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar.
We aren’t going to say these granola bars are necessarily the epitome of health food but when you compare them to store bought granola bars, they take the prize! We counted the number of ingredients in a popular granola bar and there were 30+ ingredients including corn syrup, fructose, palm kernel oil, as well as some long chemical sounding words! Our twisted version only has 7 ingredients and can be made for a fraction of the cost of store bought granola bars.
Our “twist” on this recipe is to use our Butter EVOO instead of margarine or traditional butter. We also use honey as the sweetening agent, natural peanut butter, and a little of our Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar for a nice tang of flavor. The mixture is heated in a saucepan before stirring in old-fashioned rolled oats and peanuts. To finish, simply press in a pan and sprinkle with chopped chocolate! Enjoy!
Stop in the store this week to receive 10% off our Butter EVOO and Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar. We will also be sampling these yummy treats at this week’s 4th Friday event in Uptown Westerville from 6-9 pm! We hope to see you soon!
