As I stand here in my kitchen blogging (don’t ask…) I am snacking (gorging) on eatmore bars. These things are not only delicious…but super easy to make! My husband loves them in his lunch…and now that the swathers are rolling, making lunches is a daily occurence. And once the combines get going I pack anywhere from 1 to 4 lunches on any given day….and sometimes I get 15 minutes notice. Fun!
Anyways….these eatmore bars are heaven, easy and freeze well. A fantastic solution for the lunch dilemma. I got the recipe from my old trusty 4-H cookbook circa. 1997…do they make these anymore and where do I find one if they do?!
2 cups Chocolate chips
1 cup Corn syrup
1 cup Rolled oats
2 cups Crushed peanuts (I have used almonds, walnuts..etc.)
1/2 cup Peanut butter
Melt choc. chips and corn syrup in a large pot on low heat. Take off heat, add rolled oats, peanuts and peanut butter. Spread on greased cookie sheet and let cool. Cut into squares and refrigerate. (I just put the pan right into the fridge and cut up later…and rip a few pieces off here and there as I walk by the fridge.)
Enjoy! And if you have any fantastic harvest tricks or recipes, please share!
