Happy Monday, let’s have a cookie bar! These Peanut Butter Oat Bars are not your average cookie bars, these are healthy and delicious. Made with wholesome ingredients these will be your new favorite bars. 

I have not had much of a sweet tooth this pregnancy, but even not pregnant I am not much of a sweets gal. I would say I’m team savory all the way, but like an occasional sweet here and there. I will admit chocolate and peanut butter happens to be my favorite and these bars have both those ingredients in them!


I tested these bars 2 ways, and they are best served chilled and cut much easier cold. I added chocolate chips to mine but they can easily be swapped out for berries or nuts. The chilling time is very important as it helps maintain the perfect gooey texture. Store these bars in the fridge for a quick and delicious sweet treat!
