OMG these healthy no bake peanut butter bars! 6 squares you see was everything we had left in 2 days. That is all I got to photograph. They were so good, we ate them all, even my 4 year old gobbled them up and 8 year old was away camping. That means 3 of us ate a lot of peanut butter oat bars. All they contain is almonds, oatmeal, peanut butter, coconut flakes and a bit of maple syrup. You can add maple syrup and chocolate chips as much or less as you want. And these healthy no bake peanut butter bars are ready so quick and no baking required.

Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top and flatten more with spatula or using your hands, pressing chips into dough. Refrigerate for a few hours of freeze for 30 minutes.
