If you're Canadian, you know what Eatmore candy bars are. They're a delicious, chocolaty, chewy snack. Since I don't live in Canada anymore, I just make my own from a recipe my Mom gave me. She made these for us when we were growing up, and they taste much, much better than the store bought ones I think.
1 cup smooth peanut butter
3/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup salted peanuts
1 cup raisins
Combine the peanut butter and honey in a large saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until just boiling.
Remove from the heat, and add vanilla, oatmeal, chocolate chips, peanuts and raisins.
Stir all ingredients together until all the chocolate is melted and the mix is well combined.
Put into a greased 9x9 inch baking pan. Chill for 1 hour!
Makes 24 bars. Enjoy!
I'll be making these for the kids for an after school snack once they go back to school. They're "forbidden" at school, so they'll only be eaten at home. Look for some more back to school snacks and recipes here, I'll be posting some more real soon.
