No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars Recipe

Stephanie Brubaker | Back for Seconds

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars have all the ingredients you love. Chocolate, oats, and peanut butter make for one satisfying snack.

These are seriously the BEST no bake chocolate oatmeal bars, and they make such a fabulous afternoon snack. They combine the ever-popular chocolate and peanut butter, which I just cannot resist, and they're actually pretty healthy!

My 4-year-old twins made these with very little help from me, so you know they really are easy!

My kids LOVE helping me in the kitchen. They especially like to bake with me - they all have inherited my sweet tooth and love making things like these birthday cake brownies :)

Because my kids are all so little, they aren't allowed to use the stove or oven yet. No-bake treats are my favorite things to make with them for this very reason.

One of our favorites are these lemon pie energy bites (and these are totally healthy even though they taste like a lemon bar and lemon pie had a baby). The kids don't feel like they're missing out on any part of the process, since they can make these from start to finish - no oven required!

All you need is one bowl, about five minutes, and six ingredients. Easy peasy!

The only thing that's hard about making these is the part where you have to wait for them to set up in the fridge.

I don't know about you, but it's pretty difficult for me to smell chocolate and peanut butter melting together and not immediately dive in with a spoon.

But since we want these to become bars, we need to have a little patience. It will be worth it, I promise!

I like to add coconut to these bars, but if you don't like it, feel free to substitute with something else. Next time I think I'll add some crisp rice cereal for a little crunch!

Also, if you use dark chocolate instead of the semisweet, I'm pretty sure you can call these bars health food.
