No Bake Oatmeal Bars

A quick, no bake, whole food snack for the whole family.

These chocolate topped granola bars are seriously the most delicious and easiest treat. I make a batch of something granola-ish, usually on Sundays, if it’s a get-your-life-together kind of day, which Sunday is good for.

I like to add this snack to my meal prepping for the week since I’m already in the kitchen anyway . These granola bars are the easiest and my go-to when time is short. Three ingredients, no bake, and the kids gobble them up like they are candy bars. What more could you ask for?

A quick, no bake, whole food snack for the whole family.


  • 3 cups oats – not quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Optional: chocolate chips to mix in or melt on top


Heat the honey and peanut butter over medium heat. Combine with the oats and press into a small, parchment-lined pan.

I like to melt some chocolate and spread it over the top, but a friend of mine just mixes them into the oats and that’s delish, too (Only uses one pan that way – yes!) Pop them in the fridge for a while to chill and set. After about an hour, I cut them into small squares.

They are perfect tucked into lunch boxes for a little sweet, whole food treat after lunch. Who am I kidding? The kids eat these bad boys first before their vegetables and sandwiches, but then again so do I. Oops.

Give them a try this weekend, and let me know what you think.

Love Norah Pritchard
