How To Make Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars

How To Prepare The Oat Mixture

In preparing the oat mixture for the base of this oat bar recipe, you will need a food processor or blender, bowls, and spatula. You can follow these steps for a seamless process:
  • Pulse the rolled oats, coconut flakes, and salt until you get a coarse consistency. Set aside in a medium-sized bowl.
  • In a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar and coconut oil until fully combined.
  • Pour in the oil mixture to the oat mixture and stir until the oat mixture is fully coated. It does not have to be all clumped up; it’s normal for it to be a loose mixture.

How To Prepare Chocolate-Peanut Butter Mixture

Using the bain-marie method or double boiler, melt your chopped dark chocolate. Once fully melted, stir in the creamy peanut butter and mix until smooth and fully combined. Now that all the components are ready, you can begin assembling the oat bars.

How To Assemble Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Put in half of the oat mixture in a lined dish pan and press down firmly to have an even crust. Pour in the chocolate-peanut butter mixture and spread evenly. Lastly, pour the remaining oat mixture and gently press it down to the chocolate-peanut butter mixture. Let it set in the fridge for about 4 hours or until firm to the touch. You can cut it into bars or any shape of your choice and serve.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Rolled Oats is a gluten-free, healthy, and fiber-rich breakfast staple with many different applications. In this recipe, old-fashioned rolled oats will act as the base for this guilt-free snack.
  • Unsweetened Coconut Flakes - coconut flavor is nutty and goes well with dark chocolate. It also gives extra texture to this oat bar and adds nutritional value.
  • Coconut Oil - maybe a little neutral in taste but has a warm aroma.
  • Coconut Sugar - a healthier alternative for regular sugar but has a coarse texture. Coconut sugar is similar in flavor to brown sugar; both have a caramel flavor profile.
  • Dark Chocolate - higher cocoa content that is rich in flavor-packed with nutrients and antioxidants. A great flavor combination with coconut and peanut butter.
  • Peanut Butter - a pantry staple that is great as breakfast, mid-day snack, or even midnight snack. You can use your favorite store brand peanut butter or make your own with this recipe: Homemade Peanut Butter.

Tips & Suggestions

  • Caramel oat bars - if you’re more into caramel, you can also make caramel oat bars by just caramel instead of dark chocolate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this oat bar without peanut butter?

Yes, of course. If you’re allergic to peanuts, you can also use your go-to kinds of butter like sunflower butter, soy butter, or almond butter if you’re not allergic to tree nuts.

How long can these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars keep in the fridge?

These bars can stay fresh for 2-3 weeks in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.
