Peanut butter oatmeal bars are the perfect healthy snack!

Chocolate and peanut butter make an irresistible combination. I love them in desserts like fudge, brownies, and scones, and I even drink them together in a smoothie.

My family also enjoys these healthy peanut butter oatmeal bars for breakfast or snack time. They have all the delicious flavor of their dessert cousins, but you can feel even better about eating them because of the oats.

These oatmeal bars have a soft texture, and they stay fresh for about 3 days. They’re great for breakfast or an after-school snack, and they work well for road trips, too.

The process behind making peanut butter oatmeal bars is so easy.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars Tips

I use a stand mixer to fully combine the ingredients. You can also mix them together by hand. You may end up with small clumps of peanut butter in the batter, but this isn’t a problem.

Be sure to let the bars cool before you cut them. Otherwise, they may crumble a bit. I use a metal spatula to cut them rather than a knife. By cutting straight into the bars with a spatula, you avoid the crumbly edges you may get with a knife.

Cut these oatmeal breakfast bars with a spatula for the best shape.

These bars can be frozen for another time. I usually freeze half the batch in case my family doesn’t eat them all within a few days. They defrost quickly on the counter at room temperature.

For a nut-free version, try my healthy oatmeal bars without the almonds, or my banana oatmeal chocolate chip muffins.

Recommended Equipment



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 inch pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the oats.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the egg, pure maple syrup, coconut milk, peanut butter, and melted coconut oil. Add the dry ingredients, and mix to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Transfer the batter to the baking pan, and press down evenly. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the top is set and the edges begin to turn brown.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack, then cut into 14 bars using a metal spatula or sharp knife. (If you try to cut them before they’re cool, they may crumble a bit.) Store in an airtight container for up to three days, or freeze for later.
