Ingredients for No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars:

  • unsalted butter
  • brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • porridge oats
  • chocolate (milk, dark, or semi-sweet)
  • smooth peanut butter
  • salted peanuts

Simple ingredients for such a quick and easy recipe!

To make these chocolate peanut butter bars, microwave the butter until melted, then stir in the sugar, vanilla, and the oats. Microwave for another minute, then stir again.

Press half of the mixture into the bottom of an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil.

Microwave the chocolate and peanut butter together until melted and smooth. Fold in the salted peanuts. Pour the chocolate over the oats mixture, and spread out evenly. Top with the remaining oats mixture, and press down gently.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 – 4 hours before slicing into bars. You may also refrigerate overnight, too.

    These are outstanding! I know most people love no-bake treats for the convenience, but I love them for the guaranteed chewiness factor. You can’t over bake what you don’t bake 😉
