With the fresh-out-the-oven warm-gooey-sweetness of these little delights, there’s no other name for them than simply “Yum Yum Bars.” You’ll want to eat them for breakfast, afternoon snack, and even dessert. The recipe is super versatile too. You could mix it up with other candies, or health-ify them with dried fruit & flax seed. World, please meet my granola bar soulmate.

Coat a 9×9 pan with cooking spray. Press mixture into dish. Bake 18 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool and slice into bars. I ate this whole pan. Just kidding. But I could’ve. Make these. Your family will thank you.

There are some great peanut butter substitutes out there. I’ve heard good things about Wow Butter.
