Carob PB Oatmeal Bars

What you need: 

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup oat flour
1/3 cup roasted carob powder
3/4 cup natural peanut butter, creamy and salted
1/2 cup natural apple juice, unfiltered
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons vanilla soy milk

What you do: 

This recipe is a modified version of Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars.
Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease a 7x11 glass baking dish. Mix the oats and oat flour in a medium bowl and set aside. In a 4 qt. nonstick pot, whisk together the juice, vegan maple syrup, soymilk and carob powder over med-low heat. Whisk constantly until steamy. Add the peanut butter and whisk until peanut butter is warmed and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the oats/oat flour. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes. Loosen the sides with a spatula and cut into bars soon after removing from oven.
Note: to roast carob powder, spread on a lined baking pan (I use Reynolds Release) and roast for 10-12 min. Check after 6 min. (edges burn easily).

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this with soymilk instead of apple juice and coco powder instead of carob powder and it turned out pretty good. I also added some vanilla. Ilike that it was not too sweet.

I used all soymilk instead of apple juice and accidentally doubled the maple syrup, but I am very glad I did because they were not very sweet at all. I would say this recipe makes more like 8-12 bars. I wasn't really a fan of these.

I put these in my kids' lunchboxes and they love 'em! They aske for them after school too. I didn't even roast the carob, too lazy lol. I think next time I'll bake them in a 9x9 to make them a little thicker.
