No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Granola Bars

6 ingredients, one bowl, no bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Granola Bars! So simple!

Dudes. These. are. the. best.

The best as in I may have already inhaled 3 granola bars today. And one before I got around to snapping the photos (see how there’s only 5 bars in the pictures?!)

I have a granola bar addiction. I have granola bars stashed in my desk drawer at work, in our cupboard at home, and often I’ll throw one in my purse. You never know when hunger might strike – and since I turn into the grouch when I’m hungry, they’ve saved me on many occasions!

6 ingredients, one bowl, no bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Granola Bars! So simple!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Granola Bars are so quick to whip up – they have 6 ingredients, require one pot on the stove, and absolutely no baking. So simple!

They are chewy, peanut buttery (yummm) and full of healthy oats, shredded, coconut and raisins – and no refined sugars! The bars are sweetened with honey and held together with coconut oil.

It’s best to store these bars in the fridge – as they warm up the coconut oil melts – which means they may start to fall apart a little (but will still be delicious!) Just a warning in case you like to throw granola bars in your purse like I do. Your purse might turn into a crumb factory.

Grab a No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Granola Bar on your way out the door to work for an energy fueled breakfast, or munch on one as your morning snack.

(And psst, these are endlessly customizable – don’t like raisins? Use craisins or chocolate chips. Don’t like coconut? Sub in more oats or a small seed. And add more or less honey according to your tastes. Enjoy!)

    Yum! I am totally in love with Chewy granola bars, but these look like a much healthier option. I’m always a fan of eliminating additives and preservatives!

      I also don’t like eating added sugars – you could probably even eliminate the honey altogether and these would still taste delicious!

    These sound totally awesome! I love granola bars and eat them for breakfast, post workout and to get over that mid-afternoon slump. Love that these have natural ingredients too (although I might switch out the raisins for dried blueberries or, even better, chocolate chips. Yum, now I want one! (sorry about no caps but the reply box wouldn’t let me cap anything :-()
