No-Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Prep Time25 mins
Total Time25 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 24 bars

Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter Creamy or chunky, your preference!
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • ¾ cup milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup coconut flakes unsweetened
  • Tools needed: 1 medium-sized bowl electric mixer, parchment paper, and two 8 x 8 square pans

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, add coconut oil (if it’s still in its solid form, make sure to microwave it for a few seconds), butter, and peanut butter and using your electric mixer, mix until you reach a creamy consistency (even if you’re using chunky peanut butter). You’ll find that your mixture will glisten and shine.
  • Add brown sugar and mix until well combined. Next, add graham cracker crumbs and quick oats and fold in with all other ingredients.
  • Line both square pans with parchment paper and pour in your mixture. Make sure to spread it evenly so that both pans have layers of the mixture at about ½ of an inch thick.
  • Melt chocolate chips in either a double boiler or in in the microwave. Drizzle the melted chocolate onto the layer of your peanut butter mixture and then sprinkle coconut flakes on top.
  • Cover each pan with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1.5 – 2 hours. Slice into 12 bars, about 2” x 3” each (6 bars per pan) and enjoy!
  • **Alternative: You can chill the peanut butter layer for an hour, and then spread your melted chocolate over on top. Once the chocolate is evenly spread, sprinkle on your coconut flakes and chill in the refrigerator for another hour. It’s all in personal preferences for the esthetics! In any case: same great recipe and same great taste!
