New! I’ve added a cooking video to this page so you can see how easy it is to make these Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars!
If you’re new to this website, there is a
printable recipe with exact measurements and directions at the bottom of every recipe page.
By now you know we love having a stash of healthy treats in our freezer or refrigerator.
And we love making our own — we use
simple, gluten-free and real ingredients, it’s less expensive and they taste amazing.
These Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars are all that!
And these bars are
one of my most popular and loved recipes! You all love them, my family loves them and all my boys’ friends devour them!
Best part they are made with
just 5 ingredients and super easy to make!
All you need is:
natural peanut butter (substitute any nut or seed butter you love)
oat flour (or almond flour)
chocolate chips (use a dairy-free version as desired)
The base is just 3 ingredients:
Peanut Butter (or any nut or seed butter of your choice) +
Oat flour** (toss your favorite gluten-free oats into a food processor) ** If you can’t tolerate Oats, we have also made these with Almond flour and they are equally delish!** +
Maple Syrup .
chocolate top is melted chocolate chips and a touch of coconut oil. That’s it!
take less than 15 minutes to prep, then set in the refrigerator.
First, heat the peanut butter and maple syrup over low heat. Stir in oat flour (or almond flour) and press into the pan.
press the base layer of peanut butter, oat flour or almond flour, and maple syrup into pan
Top with melted chocolate and refrigerator to set. That’s it!
pour melted chocolate over top then refrigerate to set
And like I said, it takes literally 15 minutes to make the bars, then they set in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight.
they store well in the fridge or freezer for weeks (if they last that long!).
Pro tip: Before slicing them let them sit at room temperature for 5 minutes or so. If you slice into them when they are just out of the refrigerator, the chocolate my crack.
But if you wait 5-10 minutes, they will slice cleanly!
Oh, and did I mention …. they are really YUMMY!
So go ahead and make a batch! You’ll be happy you did!
**UPDATE: Many of you have asked for a substitute to oat flour. We made it with almond flour in place of oat flour and it worked beautifully if you are looking for an oat-free, grain-free alternative.
