1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Honey
2 Cup Rolled Oats
Feel free to use any other nut butter (or sunflower seed butter for nut-free) to replace the peanut butter.
You can add extras, like chocolate chips, raisins, or nuts, when you stir the peanut butter mixture into the oats. Feel free to get creative!
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the honey to a boil. Set a timer, and allow the honey to continue boiling for 1 minute. In the meantime, place the oats in a large bowl and set aside. Remove from the pan of honey from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and salt. Immediately pour the warm mixture over the oats, and use a spatula to stir well, coating the oats evenly. As the mixture cools, it will become sticky and difficult to mix, so be sure to move quickly!
Transfer the mixture to the lined 9x9 pan, and press HARD to pack it into the pan. Pressing firmly will ensure that the bars stick together well later. Place the pan in the fridge or freezer to cool, then use a large knife to cut the bars. I like to store these bars in the freezer for best shelf life (up to 6 months) then pull them out as needed– they thaw in about an hour, which makes them perfect for a mid-morning snack.
If you’d prefer to store these bars at room temperature, they should last for up to a week.
