You may know Krystal Keith as the singer of the sweet father/daughter wedding dance song, “Daddy Dance With Me,” which she wrote for her own wedding as a surprise for dad Toby Keith. Or maybe you know her from her official debut single, “Get Your Redneck On.” [Get it here!] But did you know she’s also super talented in the kitchen? Krystal’s been creating delicious meals from family recipes for years and featuring them in her blog, The Barnyard Bistro. Every week she shares her favorites exclusively with Great American Country!

“I am always looking for clean and healthy snacks that I can grab on my way out the door or keep on my bus for those times when I’m rushing around and don’t have time to cook or prepare a healthy meal. These little bars are the perfect healthy snack. Oh! And they’re really, really yummy…” krystal-keith-peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-bars

1 cup raw rolled oats, uncooked
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together with stand or hand mixer. Dump mixture out on a sheet of wax paper, and, using rubber gloves (or plastic baggies as gloves), press mixture into a compacted square that is 1/2 inch thick. Use the side of your hand to make sure the sides are straight. Use a sharp knife to cut the square into bars. You should get 12 bars that are about 1 inch by 3 inches. Place them flat in a plastic bag and refrigerate for at least two hours to allow them to firm up a bit. You can roll them into 1 1/2 inch balls if you’d rather. Keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.
