I love JIF peanut butter. There I said it. I know, it’s not the most healthy or “cleanest” version of peanut butter. But I’ve tried the natural and organic brands and I just always end up going back to it. I grew up eating it so maybe it’s comforting or a reminder of my childhood, but I will probably always favor it over other nut butters.

Since we are talking about peanut butter, one of my favorite foods to put peanut butter on is waffles! It’s just the best, you should try it! Unfortunately, I have found that waffles aren’t the most filling breakfast and so I’ve been on a mission to find a more filling option.

Every morning I eat breakfast around 8:30am and then by 10:00 or 11:00am I’m always really hungry and end up eating a snack. Well after eating one of these peanut butter oatmeal bars for breakfast, I was set for the morning!

They are really dense, super easy to make and kept great for several days after I baked them. With how busy life is with an infant and trying to keep up with him and everything else, I’m always happy when I can have a ready to go breakfast at my fingertips.
