No-Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

 

Here’s what you’ll need:  

Dry ingredients⁠  

  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats⁠  
  • ½ cup Quick Oats - or unsweetened coconut⁠ 
  • 6 tablespoons Flaxseed Meal (or ground chia seeds or oat flour⁠)  
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt⁠  

 Liquid ingredients⁠  

 Chocolate peanut butter ganache⁠  

 Optional  

  • Sea Salt for topping 

Instructions:  

  • Line an 8x8 or 9x6 inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside.⁠  
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Set aside.⁠  
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or medium saucepan, combine peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla.   
  • If using a bowl, microwave for 20 seconds, stir and repeat until the ingredients are smooth and easy to combine to form a sweet peanut butter batter. If using a saucepan, melt and stir the ingredients on medium heat. Remove from heat when smooth and evenly combined.⁠  
  • Pour the peanut butter/maple mixture onto the dry ingredients.⁠  
  • Combine with a spatula to incorporate all ingredients together and form a sticky batter.⁠  
  • Press the batter all over the prepared square pan. Use a spatula to smooth the layer and spread evenly. 
  • Pop the pan full of batter in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate peanut butter ganache.⁠  
  • Combine all Peanut Butter Ganache ingredients in a saucepan over low heat and stir until combined. You can also use a microwave to heat and stir in increments.   
  • Remove the pan from the freezer.⁠ 
  • Pour the chocolate ganache on top of the bars and evenly spread with a spatula.⁠  
  • Sprinkle with sea salt if you wish!  
  • Return pan to the freezer for 5-10 minutes or until the ganache is set.⁠  
  • Cut and serve!
