No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Squares

Take your breakfast to go! No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Squares require no baking - just set in the fridge overnight and eat the next morning.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Squares!

Well that title is a mouthful. šŸ˜‰

These little beauties are one of the easiest recipes on this site – they require one bowl (it’s actually a pot) and no baking. Just melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil over the stove, mix in all the rest of the ingredients, scoop it into a pan, shove it in the fridge – and you’re good!

If eating chocolate chips for breakfast is a little too Ā much for you (what are you, crazy?!), then feel free to leave them out. You’ll still have a delicious peanut butter oatmeal square that you can take to go.

The only caveat – do not stick one of theseĀ barsĀ in your purse and forget about it – otherwise you will find crumbled oats and sticky peanut butter adhering to your wallet later that day! Eat it shortly after you walk out the door andĀ store the bars in your fridge.

And to give credit when credit is due – the originalĀ recipe for these bars isĀ from my good friend L – hi, L! I’ve since tweaked and tweaked – another version is here.

Happy no-baking!

  2. No-bake are two magic words to my heart! These look so yummy and I love that they come together on the stovetop. And in my opinion, chocolate at breakfast is always a good idea šŸ˜‰ Pinning!
