Healthier Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars Recipe

Only 6 ingredients needed to make these Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars. They come together in a matter of minutes and you can feel good about feeding them to your family because of the healthy ingredients that are used to make them.

I am always looking for healthier dessert choices for my family and this is one that everyone loved!

These Chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars are similar to a granola bar, but they are made with just a handful of ingredients that you can pronounce – no hidden sugars or corn syrups or weird chemical ingredients.

To be honest, they are kind of like a chewy granola bar topped with thin layer of dark chocolate. They are so simple to make and are perfect for an after-school snack, dessert, or even as a quick source of energy before one of your kids’ soccer games (or track, dance, basketball, baseball, golf, gymnastics . . . all the places parents are running their kids these days!).
