Skinny Cookie Butter Oat Bars

Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter makes me so darn happy, which is why I knew I had to make Skinny Cookie Butter Oat Bars as soon as humanly or extraterrestrially possible! Yup, the good ol’ people who work at my local TJ’s wave at me when I walk inside, and then their eyes guide me around the corner and expect, anticipate, gnaw at their nails until I reach for that beautiful jar of creamy (or crunchy) goodness.

I am joking, of course. Whenever anyone walks in, they’re heading straight for the cookie butter. This is no surprise. This is no on-the-edge-of-your-seat feat. This is life the Trader Joe’s way. This week, per usual, ready to mix it up in the kitchen and craving my cookie goo, I spent an afternoon baking.
