Easy Peanut Butter Bars
All you need for this super simple, delicious recipe is THREE ingredients! Peanut butter, oats, and honey. I cook and do A LOT of food prep in my day to day life so any easy recipe that I can get my hands on is a winner in my book. These peanut butter bars are really versatile. You can eat them for breakfast, dessert, a snack, or a trail food. They’re good on their own but you can also add extra ingredients to spice them up or add extra calories and nutrients. Here are the measurements I use, but feel free to add more or less of any ingredient to suit your preferences.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/3 cup raw honey
- 3 cups rolled oats
- Line a 9×9 inch pan with parchment paper or grease with butter or coconut oil.
- Melt the peanut butter and honey together in a saucepan on the stove top.
- Mix the peanut butter and honey with the oats in a large bowl.
- Using a spoon, spatula, or your hand press the mixture into the pan.
- Refrigerate until set
- Cut into squares
I don’t like my peanut butter bars too sweet, so if you want yours sweeter add a little more honey. Some optional ingredients might include chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, cranberries, coconut, or cinnamon. Get creative and enjoy!
