WW Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Weight Watchers Oatmeal Bars

Over the weekend I posted this photo on my Instagram stories with the caption that I
make these bars every weekend and it's true! When I started WW (formerly know as
Weight Watchers) last April I found that most of the granola or protein bars that I had
been eating had more smart points than I wanted to use for a morning or afternoon snack
so I began making these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars.

This oatmeal bar recipe is baked in a 8 x 8 inch pan and if you cut the bars evenly into
9 bars they are only 2 WW smart points each if you're on the blue plan.

I make them every Sunday and wrap them up so that I have a mid-morning snack every
day at work. If I don't plan out my meals I will get off track quickly! Planning is key
when doing the WW plan.

WW Oatmeal Bars
Weight Watchers Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

4 T PB2 powdered peanut butter
3 T water
2 over ripe banana
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup (I use Lakanto)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 large egg
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Lily's chocolate chips + extra for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8 x 8 baking pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl blend together the PB2 and water until smooth.

In a blender add all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips, but including
the PB2 mixture.  Pulse for about 30 seconds or until ingredients are blended.
Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into prepared bake dish. Sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven to cool.

Cut cooled bars into 9 squares. Each square is 2 WW Smartpoints on Blue.
