I’ve got a new recipe for you today that’s technically part of my baking series. But no one will mind if you don’t actually have to bake them in the oven, will they? I’m personally a big fan of skipping steps (i.e., saving time) in the kitchen, so I’m excited to share these new No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars with you today that my girls absolutely LOVE. I’m talking dance around the kitchen love when they see me making them. :)
And I love it when I have a batch of these bars on hand because then I am prepared with yummy, filling snacks when I hear the inevitable, “I’m hungry…” These bars would also be a great way to supplement a lunch or even have as a quick breakfast with a side of fruit. I think the moral of the story is that it’s hard to go wrong with this recipe, so I hope you and your family enjoy them just as much as we do!
No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars
- Line an 8 x 8 inch square baking dish with wax or parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter and maple syrup until it's mixed together thoroughly.
- Pour in the oats and cereal and stir with a rubber spatula until well combined.
- Spread the bar mixture into one even layer in the bottom of the pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Cut and serve or store in the fridge.
