No Bake Brownies (Kristin)

Stacia begged to bake brownies today. I was clearing my desk and found this recipe. 

Assemble ingredients:
3/4 C Butter
1/2 C Brown Sugar (Rapadura)
1 tsp Vanilla
3 C Quick Oats (I used rolled oats)
1 C Chocolate Chips
1/2 C Peanut Butter

Have our assistant melt bugger over medium heat:

Once melted add sugar, vanilla and oats. Stir until it's a sticky mess!

While she's occupied combine peanut butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt. 

In a greased 8x8 pan layer 1/2 of the oat mixture (press down firmly), the chocolate mixture (reserve some to drizzle on the top), top with remaining oat mixture (lightly press down), drizzle chocolate on top. 

Put in fridge for 3 hours...or until you can't wait any longer ;-) The kids love this one. I'm not tempted - this sugar fast seems to be working.  Not sure if the rolled oats "work" but I have children who will eat raw oats.....seems more fudgey than brownie like....but Stacia was happy with the results. 

Choosing Joy!
