Super easy and yummy, No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars with just three healthy ingredients – and then plenty of chocolate on top!  

Prep time: 10 mins - Total time: 10 mins 

Ingredients

450g jumbo oats
200g peanut butter - crunchy or smooth - your choice! If it's a really thick peanut butter you might need a bit more coconut oil
3 tbsp coconut oil
300g milk or dark chocolate

 

Method:

Grease a 9 x 9 inch, or similar, brownie tin with butter or coconut oil and set aside.

In a large heatproof bowl, combine your peanut butter and coconut oil, and melt together in 30-second intervals on high power.

Once they're completely liquid and combined, stir in your oats. Mix well, and tip into your square tin. Press down firmly with the back of a spoon (if it's sticking, dip in some coconut oil first).

Put the oat mixture to one side.

In a heatproof bowl in the microwave, melt the milk chocolate on 30-second bursts of high power, stirring after each one. Pour over the bars, spreading out with a spoon (and creating swirly patterns if you like)! 

Pop into the fridge to set - they should be ready to cut in under an hour. Store in an airtight tin on the counter - or in the fridge if it's very hot.
