When I first published this recipe for no-bake peanut butter oatmeal bars almost three years ago it was because it was a great recipe for three active super hungry boys… some things never change!
What I love about these is I almost always have the ingredients to make a batch on hand, simple pantry staples that combine to make a tasty treat. So they deserve another look and for more people to discover their deliciousness.
Oh how I love a quick easy no-bake treat that can be a snack, or is healthy enough to be eaten for breakfast. All 3 boys are running track this year, so the quest is on to stock the house with energy filled, filling, tasty treats, that are grab and go… is that too much to ask?
These no-bake peanut butter oatmeal bars fit the bill, and besides the time to set, they are super quick to make.
They do have to set for at least 8 hours so plan ahead.
Here’s what you’ll need for these no-bake peanut butter oatmeal bars
- 1-Cup Peanut butter
- 3/4- Cup Honey
- 3-Cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal
- 1-tsp Vanilla
- 1/2-tsp Salt
Grease or line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
Now in a saucepan over medium heat combine PB, honey, vanilla and salt. Heat until thoroughly blended.
Remove from the heat and add your oats. Stir until the oats are evenly coated. Now pour the mixture into the pan and press it down.
Cover, and let set 8 hours or overnight.
I like to cut them into squares but if you want a bigger snack you can cut them into bars.
You can wrap them up individually for a quick grab and go snack or keep them in the pan, covered for storage.
