Ingredients

  • 260 grams crunchy peanut butter 1 cup
  • 120 millilitres light agave nectar 1/2 cup
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 140 grams rolled oats 1 and 1/2 cups
  • 55 grams quick oats 1/2 cup
  • 30 grams Rice Krispies 1 cup
  • 75 grams crystallised ginger 1/2 cup
  • 60 grams dark chocolate chips 1/3 cup

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 inch square tin with baking parchment and place to one side.
  • In a large mixing bowl microwave on high for 30 seconds the peanut butter and agave nectar.
  • Stir the two ingredients together until they are well combined then stir in the ground ginger.
  • Pour in the oats and quick oats and mix until all of the oats are well covered.
  • Gently stir in the rice krispies.
  • Fold in the crystallised ginger and most of the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and flatten it down with the back of a spoon.
  • Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of your bars and gently press them in.
  • Place your tin in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Take the tin out of the freezer and cut it into 10 bars. Wrap each bar in baking parchment to stop them sticking together.
  • These bars are best kept in the fridge, but can be kept at room temperature but they will crumble a little bit more. They will be good for 10 days in the fridge and 5 days at room temperature.

Notes

  • You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter, I just like the texture of crunchy peanut butter.
  • You can substitute peanut butter with your favourite nut butter, almond/cashew etc.
  • For the quick oats, I just used 2 sachets of instant oats/porridge. If you don't have any just pulse regular oats for a few seconds in a blender to break them up a little bit.
  • Use Gluten Free oats if you need these bars to be free of any gluten.
