No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars are a delicious and easy-to-make treat. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare these scrumptious bars:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats (old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  • Prepare a baking dish: Grease or line an 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) square baking dish with parchment paper. Set it aside.
  • Melt the butter: In a large microwave-safe bowl or a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter.
  • Add sugar and vanilla: Stir in the packed brown sugar and vanilla extract into the melted butter until well combined.
  • Mix in oats: Add the rolled oats to the butter-sugar mixture and stir until the oats are completely coated.

  • Press the mixture: Transfer the oat mixture to the prepared baking dish. Using a spatula or the back of a spoon, press the mixture firmly and evenly into the dish to create a smooth, compact layer.
  • Prepare the chocolate topping: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semisweet chocolate chips and creamy peanut butter. Microwave in short intervals (e.g., 30 seconds) and stir after each interval until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Add salt: Stir in the salt into the chocolate-peanut butter mixture.
  • Spread the topping: Pour the chocolate-peanut butter mixture over the pressed oats in the baking dish. Use a spatula to spread the topping evenly.
  • Chill the bars: Place the baking dish in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow the bars to set properly.
  • Cut and serve: Once the bars have set, remove the dish from the refrigerator. Lift the bars out of the dish using the parchment paper (if lined). Cut them into desired sizes and shapes using a sharp knife.

  • Serve and enjoy!

These No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars are a delightful treat that’s perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life.

Enjoy!
