Have you been enjoying Girl Scout ReDo week?
I sure have enjoyed making and eating them!
The last post in this series takes on BL’s favorite, the Tagalong. Oatmeal and Peanut Butter base with a thick chocolate topping.
Remember, the goal of this week was to take our favorite Girl Scout cookie flavors and make them into something we could actually serve our kids.
I love a hearty granola bar and these definitely fit the bill. If you want more of an even balance between peanut butter and chocolate, spread a little less filling into the pan or use a larger pan.
Either way, you will love them. I’ve been enjoying them for breakfast with a homemade almond milk latte or on-the-go as an afternoon snack.
I hope you have enjoyed our Girl-Scout Re-Do week. Which flavor was your favorite?
Tagalong Girl Scout Granola Bars
2 cups oats
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup packed dates
1/2 cup rice crispy cereal
1/4 cup agave syrup (or other sweetener, honey, maple syrup)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. neutral oil
chocolate shavings, optional topping.
In a food processor, combine the oats, peanut butter, and dates until a chunky crumb forms. Add the rice crispy cereal and agave. Process until the dough is sticky and able to be pinched between your fingers and hold it’s shape.
Press into a lightly greased 8X8. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Combine 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1 tsp. neutral oil. Place in the microwave and heat for 1 minute. Remove and stir until creamy.
Pour over the peanut butter bars and spread to all corners. Sprinkle on chopped chocolate.
Place back into fridge to harden, about 30 minutes. Slice into bars.
