🤩Compare the ingredients list in this recipe to what you’ll find in store-bought granola bars, and you’ll never go back!


If you prefer to avoid chocolate chips, try cacao nibs. 


Avoid the temptation of cutting these before they have cooled. If you cut them too soon they will turn into a crumbly (but delicious) mess.

Homemade PB Oat Bars

(Makes 16 servings)


  • 3 cups (240 g) rolled oats

  • ¾ cup (190 g) natural peanut butter or almond butter

  • â…“ cup (110 g) honey or maple syrup 

  • ½ cup (120 g) mini chocolate chips

  • 2 eggs 

  • Pinch of sea salt

Preheat your oven to 350ºF/177ºC and line a 9x9 inch (23x23 cm) baking dish with parchment paper.


Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.


Transfer the mixture to a baking dish & press into the pan so that it forms an even layer.


Bake for 14-17 minutes. It’s done when the center feels firm(ish) and the edges are becoming brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a rack before slicing into 16 squares. 


Try not to eat them all at once!
