3 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

  These 3 ingredient no bake peanut butter bars are AMAZING!! I posted this recipe awhile back and I’ve been making them ever since. We’ve completely stopped buying boxed granola bars and I make these weekly instead. They are way better and healthier for you too! You could easily add nuts, raisins or chocolate chips for an even more delicious snack. Everyone in my family loves these including my two year old. I hope you have a chance to give them a try because they are super easy to make and they taste great!

  1. These definitely are amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I made them a couple weeks ago for my family and they were a hit! In fact my family has been asking for them since then and so I made another batch yesterday! I pair them with homemade organic yogurt and a piece of fruit and it makes a great and filling grab n go breakfast! Next time I'm going to double the recipe so maybe they will last past one meal!
  2. These look so delicious!! Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to try them for my family. We eat a lot of granola bars so this recipe would save us some serious money. I'll let you know how it goes :)
    1. I made these last night and they are delicious!!!! I am going to do two things different next time: 1.) Make my own peanut butter (I had non-organic and it was a bit thick) and 2.) I will use my dough-mixer attachment on our NInja blender because I didnt get it mixed all the way through. They still turned out great, but some of the oatmeal falls off. :-) Thanks for the great recipe.
  3. Hi there, sorry if my questions are kind of silly but I really want to start doing my own stuff and stop buying all that processed food out there. 1. Are the oats supposed to be cooked or direct from the package? Can I use organic oats? 2. When you say mix the ingredients, do you mean use a mixer or a spoon? If a mixer is needed how fast and for how long? Thanks, I have all my ingredients and ready to do this.
    1. Deann, I have never tried to freeze them so I am unsure. I guess you could look up the individual ingredients to see if they are freezble. I know the oats will be okay frozen. Missy
  4. Can I sub the honey with simple syrup or karo syrup please get back really wanna make these for the kids
  5. Hey simple and looks great! I was just wondering if you store them at room temp or in the refrigerator after you refrigerate for 2 hrs and cut the bars. Also, have you tried baking this? If so, how would you compare the taste?
  6. Do we have to keep these refrigerated after the 2 hours? Can we keep them in a airtight container on the counter?
  7. If I remember correctly you are still celebrating the birth of your baby!!! If you ever get a moment can we make these with long cooking oats or must they be instant oats only Thank you if you ever find the time, LOL. regards, Linda
