CHOCOLATE OATMEAL PEANUT BUTTER BLUEBERRY BARS

We just completed the oatmeal challenge here at OUR KrAzY kitchen and I had made these bars for a baking challenge over at Tuesdays with Dorie during January. They turned out really scrumptious.

I’m also offering these recipes for the oatmeal theme:

On a personal note I would like to point out SnoWhite from Finding Joy in My Kitchen. She has 32 different and yummy oatmeal recipes for you to choose from.

  1. I used to make oatmeal pancakes years ago that were very yummy… now I'll have to find that recipe and make them again sometime soon.I wish I would have saw your Choc P'Nut Butter bars recipe yesterday… I used up some blueberries in muffins. I would have rather used them up trying something new like this!
