No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars:


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips for drizzling


  1. Prepare the Base:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined.
  2. Add Dry Ingredients:
    • Add the rolled oats and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated. If the mixture seems too dry, you can add a little more melted butter or honey.
  3. Press into Pan:
    • Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal. Transfer the peanut butter mixture into the pan and press it down firmly and evenly using a spatula or your hands.
  4. Optional Chocolate Drizzle:
    • If you’d like, melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or using a double boiler. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the peanut butter mixture in the pan. You can use a fork or a piping bag to create a decorative drizzle pattern.

  1. Chill and Set:
    • Place the pan in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours, or until the bars are firm and set. This will allow the bars to hold their shape and become easier to slice.
  2. Slice and Serve:
    • Once the bars have chilled and set, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the bars out of the pan. Place them on a cutting board and slice into squares or bars using a sharp knife.
  3. Enjoy:
    • Your no-bake peanut butter bars are ready to be enjoyed! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Feel free to get creative with this recipe by adding chopped nuts, dried fruits, or other mix-ins of your choice to the peanut butter mixture before pressing it into the pan. Enjoy your delicious and easy-to-make no-bake peanut butter bars!
