These peanut butter oatmeal bars are made with three healthy ingredients that we always have on hand and they take hardly any time to bake!

They’re chewy with a slight crunch from the toasting of the oats as they bake and they’re loaded with peanut butter and honey giving them that sweet & salty combo that irresistible! No excuses on this one, my friends! 1, 2, 3…bake & enjoy!

Description

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Honey Oat Bars are the perfect healthy snack. Easy to bake and you probably always have the ingredients on hand!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned or quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use natural peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, peanut butter and honey until well combined. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the oats start to toast around the edges and turn a light brown on top. Let cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

If the mixture seems dry before pressing it into the pan, add a little more peanut butter and/or honey until the mixture comes together. Some peanut butters are thicker and more dry than others.

  1. Many thanks for this recipe—simple and nourishing with many possibilities for variation. How long would you recommend these be stored? And can they be stored in the fridge?






    1. Hi, Anna! Great question! They keep great in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days and in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks really. I love eating them chilled, but you can always let come to room temp to enjoy. They also freeze well. I would recommend wrapping each bar in plastic wrap and then placing in a freezer-safe container or plastic bag to freezer for up to two months and then defrost, still sealed, in the refrigerator before enjoying.

    1. Hi Kate! You can certainly enjoy them without baking them. They will just be more gooey and won’t have that toasted oat flavor. Just make sure you let them set in refrigerator or at room temperature for at least an hour so they hold their shape once sliced into bars. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

  2. I am peanut allergic, used Almond Butter instead, added vanilla and cinnamon. yummy. would you happend to know the nutritional values.

  3. Oh my goodness, these were delicious! Easy and quick to make. Mine came out perfectly, just like the picture. Thank you for this recipe!






  4. These were so easy and yummy! Mine weren’t crunchy at all. I think it helped that I used a new jar of peanut butter that needed to be stirred so the oil was at the top after it was freshly stirred. I baked them for 12 mins and didn’t even wait for them to cool. 😉 Delicious! I think I’ll add some chocolate chips in next time too.
