Breakfast never tasted so good with these No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars, done in 5 minutes! Filled with chocolate chunks, creamy peanut butter, chia seeds, and loads of other nutrients to fill you up!

It has officially been three months since we potty trained little man.

For the most part it has gone really well, he caught on to the concept pretty fast and enjoys being able to put on his big boy underwear. There is still the occasional accident but overall I think we are in the clear.

Now we are on to teaching him to go to the bathroom on his own, instead of us picking him up to put him on the toilet.  We have the high elongated toilets (might be TMI but whatever) so the kid literally needs to climb up on a step stool to be able to sit down.

The other day we had just gotten back from swim lessons and as soon as we walked in the door Cason says, “I have to go tee tee mommy.” (which is our word for potty) I said, “Ok buddy, do you think you can go by yourself?” He said “sure” in a confident voice so I let him be.

I started making some peanut butter sandwiches for lunch and all of a sudden I hear “ooohhh noooo” and what sounded like crying. Not the best words for a momma to hear.

I rush over to the bathroom and find Cason in the dark, sitting on the floor, pants around his ankles, with a stream of pee going straight up in the air.

Hand to forehead…

Of course, when I walk in his stream moves from hitting the shower curtain to now hitting the toilet as he turns to look at me in desperation.

All I could do was laugh and say… buddy what happened?

“ooooohhhhhh… I couldn’t get my pants off in time… I got tee tee all over!”

Yes, yes you did. 🙂 The things we do for our kids! #cleanupalltheaccidents

Ok, now on to the food for today! Because let’s be honest, that’s why you came here today, not to hear my crazy potty training stories, as funny as they are!

Even though I would like to say that I’m a big breakfast kinda girl, I’m really not. Most mornings I grab a banana and peanut butter, a piece of toast, or a muffin. They aren’t all that filling and not the best sources of nutrients. It’s one of the meals I am working on changing in my diet, because after all .. “its the most important meal of the day.”

As a way to ease myself in, I made a tasty on the go breakfast and filled it with lots of nutrients that will not only fill me up for the morning but also give my body the nutrients it needs.

These No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars are a dream come true! Peanut butter … YUM … Chocolate .. double yum and then filled with ground flax seed, chia seeds, oats, cinnamon, pecans, and lots more! They are seriously addicting and don’t even feel like breakfast!  You will love them!  Every bit is filled with chocolate and peanut butter and then every once in a while you’ll get a hint of cinnamon or pecan. It’s delicious!

You’ll be the envy of the workplace with these as your breakfast!

  1. Mine did not stick together. Looked more like granola. Maybe it’s the organic pb with limited oil? I just added more of the PB mixture and re-mixed. They are cooling now. We shall see.

    1. Whoops.. sorry about that Ann! I tested this recipe twice. Once with honey and once with maple syrup, i liked the maple better. I forget to switch the honey out for maple in the instructions, thanks for the heads up. Just updated it!

  2. Do you think adding some protein powder would be okay to add to the recipe? I am trying to find a bar that has the great ingredients but a little more protein per bar. I will definitely try making these this weekend! I always keep a batch of your No Bake Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites/ No Bake Dark Chocolate Chip Energy Bites on hand for whenever I need a pick-me-up! I usually split the recipe and make 1/2 of each kind by starting off with the same ingredients and then just adding 1/2 of the other ingredients. Thanks for such YUMMY recipes!

    1. Absolutely! Maybe do 1/4 cup ground flax seed and 1/4 cup of the protein powder.

      Love that you improvise and split the recipe to make both the pumpkin energy bites and dark chocolate chip ones! Smart girl! πŸ™‚ I might start doing that for a little variety! You totally made my day with the sweet comments, so honored to have you as a reader Heather!
