The original name for this recipe was simply “Oat Bars” but I had the honour of guinea pigging them on all the wonderful writers and staff of the Yummy Mummy Club and, well, let’s just say they were popular. So I felt this name would be appropriate for many reasons.
For those of you that do not know, on top of this blog, I also write a blog for the Yummy Mummy Club. I’ve been writing for them for seven months and the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. I’ve met amazing people, had the chance to do things outside of my comfort zone and been pushed to accomplish things I honestly didn’t know I could. All from the inspiring and amazing team of YMC, including Erica Ehm (and if you’re super cool-which I know you are-you’ll know EXACTLY who she is).
Also, no pressure or anything but half the people (wait…maybe more) in that room were food bloggers. FOOD BLOGGERS, PEOPLE. These are writers and recipe developers and people who know their food! Oh-and I had to do it for forty. I’m not complaining-I happily did it. Just saying.
But I digress. You’re here for the recipe and here I am blabbing on and on about ME. How rude.
So you want to know about these bars? Sure. First off, they’re nut-free and vegan. I had also made another dessert for this crowd (Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies) but I knew this wicked awesome chickie was coming to the staff meeting who is vegan and it’s not fair to put cookies in front of someone without something else they can eat. So I came up with these. So thank you Nicole, for being super awesome, and for being vegan. This recipe was born because of you.
Yummy Oat Bars
Chewy, sweet, and slightly salty vegan oat bars that will have everyone asking for more...and for the recipe.
