Chunky Monkey Oat Bars

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Chunky Monkey Oat Bars. Have I earned my starchy carbs? Where are my healthy fats?


2 large eggs
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup puréed or finely chopped pitted dates
1 medium banana, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks or mini morsels (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch baking dish with nonstick foil or parchment paper.

Combine eggs, peanut butter, dates, banana and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to combine until well blended. Stir in oats, baking powder and salt. Fold in chocolate chunks and nuts.

Press mixture into prepared pan. Bake 18–20 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; lift up foil or parchment, and cool on wire rack. Cut into 10 bars.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
