Sometimes you just need something sweet – STAT! When that craving strikes, I whip up these Peanut Butter & Honey Bars. I promise, these unbelievably delicious & easy no-bake treats do have a few redeeming “healthy qualities”: They’re made with real ingredients, contain no refined sugars & are a great source of healthy fat. At least that’s what I’m telling myself 😉 You can easily sub in a seed butter like sunflower seed butter for the nut butter to keep these school-safe, or almond butter if you’ve got a peanut allergy in the house.

Peanut Butter & Honey Bars
  1. 1.5 c rolled oats (not quick or instant, stick with the slow-cook baking oats)
  2. 1.5 c puffed brown rice cereal (look for this in the natural foods area of the grocery store)
  3. 1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut
  4. 2 tbsp chocolate chips
  5. 1 c peanut (or other nut or seed) butter
  6. 1/2 c honey
  7. 1 tsp vanilla
  1. In a large bowl, combine oats, cereal, coconut and chocolate chips.
  2. In a pot over medium heat, whisk together peanut butter, honey and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Let cool slightly.
  4. Pour wet over the dry ingredients and stir until well-combined.
  5. Press mixture into a parchment-lined 8x8"pan.
  6. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  7. Cut into 20-25 squares and enjoy.
  8. Refrigerate what you don't eat.

  1. I want to make the Raw Gingerbread balls but was wondering what the Weight Watchers points value are.  I need fat, carbs, fiber & protein.  They look so good.

    1. Sorry Florrie, I’m not affiliated with weight watchers and don’t use their system for weight loss clients, so I’m not sure. I try to focus on quality ingredients and moderation when it comes to treats like these. Maybe you could input the ingredients into an online calculator?
