You can't buy Eatmore bars in the US.
I have no idea.
I have to wait until I either make my way to Canada to visit family or have a friend bring me some.
Which a friend did, not too long ago.
And I appreciated it/them very much.
Then I ate them.
The last one today.
But I'm gonna try my hand at making my own. Awhile back I googled and goggled at all the Eatmore lookalike recipes online.
Then I bookmarked some, and thought I would wait until Christmas to make some, but it ain't gonna happen.
I want one now!
Or maybe tomorrow.
So I went online and looked at all kinds of Eatmore Bar recipes and decided to try this one. I got from here.
I did play with it a little, not much though. I used Chunky Peanut Butter. And while the taste is pretty good, it's no Eatmore Bar, so I will continue to try new recipes. The honey overpowered the taste a little, and they're not chewy either.
More like a candy bar. So this batch will go into the freezer and I'll dip into them from time to time. But I did realize that even if they're not an Eatmore, they're a great energy bar. I mean Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal, Honey, all great sources of energy. The chocolate is just there for flavoring.
Recipe: Makes one 9x13 pan and one 8x8 pan, if spread out thinly.
1 c. Chunky peanut butter
3/4 c. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. oatmeal, not the quick cooking one
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. peanuts, dry roasted, lightly chopped.
Mix the Peanut Butter and Honey in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Add the vanilla.
Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate, oatmeal and peanuts.
*** Next time I make these, I'll place a sheet of parchment paper on the bottom of the pan before I place the bar mixture in there. These were not easy to get out even though I sprayed the pan with cooking spray first.
This was only my first try, I'm going to go and have fun making more.
