Super Simple Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bars

Filed under: News — Missy @ 9:04 pm

More and more of our guests are in need of gluten-free diet.  Here is a super simple way to have a sweet treat!

2 tablespoons chocolate chips

2 to 3 tablespoons peanut butter

2 tablespoons milk (or almond milk for our vegan friends)

1/2 cup oats

Optional: 1 tablespoon of any dry ingredient you would like to add such as: sunflower seeds, raisins, extra chocolate chips, cocunut flakes, nuts, etc.

1) Melt the first three ingredients together in the microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring each time.

2) Add the oats and any optional ingredients.  You will want this mixture to be fairly dry (I probably ended up using close to one cup of oats all together).  If its not dry enough, add more oats one tablespoon at a time.

3) Press mixture into bars or balls.  I lined a small Pyrex baking dish with scranwrap to make removing the bars easy. I cut mine at this point.

4) Put in the fridge for 30 minutes or until bars harden.

5) Enjoy!

  2. Great recipe. I have some friends visiting soon who are on a gluten free diet; I know they would love this sweet treat. You get extra points in presentation for those delectable strawberries added to the snack.
    Love the recipe, and the blog as well. My name is Marc, and in addition to my affinity for snacks , I also work for Bescover — where we love all things B&B! It’s truly a privilege being a part of your online community
