Ingredients and substitutions
Oats: I like to use organic quick oats as the bars tent to hold together better with them, however old fashioned rolled oats will also work!
Peanut butter: You can sub any nut or seed butter. Sunflower seed butter makes a great nut-free option!
Chocolate chips: I like to use the brand Hu Kitchen to keep these refined sugar free. I have a code “danishealthyeats” for a discount!
Maple syrup: You can also use honey or another sticky sweetener.
Vanilla extract & sea salt
