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

Scale
  • 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. Just like your 5 ingredient granola bars, these are easy to make, healthy and delicious ! Thank you for fabulous snacks!

  2. I am looking for a low salt bar and these sound GREAT for my need. Can these be made with unsalted peanut butter? The peanut butter that I have been using is also unsweetened but I assume that makes no matter since there is honey in the recipe. Thanks.

    1. Hi Sara! I use Natural Jif or Natural Skippy. They tend to have less oil settling on top. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  3. Enjoyed the first batch, making a second. I like this recipe because it simple, transparent and delicious.

  4. Tried this yesterday. I used chunky peanut butter. So goood.
    Please what is the calorie content?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Joy! So glad you liked the Peanut Butter Honey Oat Bars as much as we do. I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you used into a free online nutrition calculator like: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator Hope this helps. Continue to enjoy!

    1. Hi Kelly! Yes, most oats are actually gluten free unless they’re processed in a facility where they could be exposed to gluten. The Quaker gluten free quick oats will work just as great, the bars will just bake about 2-5 minutes quicker. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Nina! What kind of peanut butter did you use? I’m wondering if it was not creamy enough? Or did you over-bake them? Did you use old-fashioned oats? Next time, if the mixture seems too dry before pressing it into the baking dish, try adding more peanut butter or honey. And maybe try baking them for just 10-15 minutes as oven temperatures sometimes vary and they could have dried out if they over-baked. Hope this helps and that you were still able to enjoy as a yogurt topping which sounds so yummy. 🙂

    1. Oh no! I’m wondering if it’s the type/brand of peanut butter you’re using or if they were baked too much. I would recommend reducing the baking time and using a creamier peanut butter. If the mixture seems dry before patting it in the pan, I recommend adding a little more peanut butter and/or honey until the mixture is moist and easy to press into the baking dish. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  5. Sadly had the same thing happened regarding it being dry. I had made something similar to these a couple years ago and was trying to find the recipe. My peanut butter was brand new and it was the same ingredients I had used before. Might try again but adjust ingredients.

  6. Just made these. The middle did not bake very well and I think it needs a little more sweetness to counter the cloying peanut butter. I do enjoy them though and will play with the recipe a bit. Thank you for the idea!

    1. Hi, Rick! I’m sorry to hear it didn’t bake up well! I’ve always understood ‘cloying’ to mean too sweet, but if it’s more sweetness you’re after, perhaps if you use processed peanut butter instead of natural peanut butter it will give you the flavor you’re looking for.
