Is there anything better than peanut butter for a snack? You can often find each member of our family with a peanut butter spoon for a snack at some point in the week!  Sometimes we try variations of this with mini chocolate chips on it, and you can almost always find a glass of milk close by!  Peanut butter is a favorite, but add chocolate and it will definitely be a hit with my family.

I have tried some different energy bites and peanut butter bars as an alternative to just plain peanut butter, and usually find they have ingredients that I don’t want as a regular part of our diet, or just haven’t been a favorite. A couple weeks ago I found the easiest recipe for our peanut butter loving family! These Peanut Butter Oatmeal bars are a new family favorite for a snack or dessert. Not only are they delicious, but they are so easy to make!  They only take 5-10 minutes to make and only have 4 simple ingredients! They are a filling snack with just a few good ingredients, and they are loved by all.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars


1 peanut butter

3/4 cup honey

1/2 cup chocolate chips

3 cups rolled oats

Line 8×8 pan with parchment paper. Melt peanut butter and honey in a saucepan over low heat and stir until smooth.  Remove from heat and add oats.  Add chocolate chips and stir until incorporated.  Press into prepared 8×8 pan. Refrigerate until set or overnight.  Cut and serve.

These bars are delicious, and I love the simple ingredients!  They taste so good with our local honey from my dear friend, and my husband and son eat the pan up so quickly!  Give them a try, add your own mix-ins along with the chocolate chips!

    These sound like a nice homemade energy bar. You could add in some protein powder or nuts for an added boost.

    These bars look very healthy and delicious. My question is when it says one peanut butter, do you mean one jar of peanut butter. I want to make this recipe.

    These look delicious and healthier (in moderation) than a candy bar.
