Oatmeal PB bars - vegan friendly

Who wants chocolate and peanut butter for breakfast!? I do I do! I saw these over on (neverhome)maker on Friday and promptly made up a batch Saturday. Yup it was one of those mmmm those look good, MUST MAKE NOW! Kinda recipes! I'm not sure if I did something wrong, or maybe baked them a bit too long, but mine were super crumbly. Still wicked tasty, but definitely not a bar you could eat in the car... unless you like crumbs everywhere :)

The only other thing I can think of is I used all natural PB, which tends to be a bit dryer than Skippy or Jiff (although I doubt Ashley used either of those, she's a pretty all natural kinda gal). Either way, I liked these, even if they were crumbly. Just grab a glass of milk and you're good to go. Oh another bonus for these, they are vegan!

PEANUT BUTTER HUG BARS
recipe by (neverhome)maker
What you'll need . . .
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1-1/2 tablespoons flax meal mixed with 1/3 cup warm almond milk
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Method . . .
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8" x 8" baking pan with parchment (or grease lightly).
In a small bowl, heat up almond milk in your microwave (or stove) until it's wrist temperature. Mix in the flax meal with a fork and let sit for a couple minutes until thickened. Set aside momentarily.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine the olive oil and peanut butter. Then add the flax mixture. Add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well moistened.
Fold in the chocolate chips. Then pour mixture into your baking pan and flatten.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
