NO BAKE 7-GRAIN BARS
These easy sweet and hearty snack bars are perfect when you don't want to start the oven.
1 cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups Cream of the West Roasted 7-Grain
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
Line a square baking dish (8” or 9”) with parchment, allowing the paper to overhang the sides to remove the bars easily.
Melt butter and brown sugar in large saucepan over medium heat, until the butter has melted, and the sugar has dissolved. Stir in vanilla.
Stir in Roasted 7-Grain and simmer over low heat 6-7 minutes.
Spread half of the oat mixture into the prepared baking dish, pressing mixture down flat.
For filling, melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips together in a small microwave-safe bowl and stir until it’s smooth.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust in the pan, (reserving about 1/4 cup) and spread evenly.
Pour the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate layer, pressing in gently.
Drizzle with the remaining chocolate mixture.
Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
