Let’s discuss something.

Is there really such a thing as “too much peanut butter?” Because I’m pretty sure we test those limits over here on Sally’s Baking Addiction.

My goal for today’s bars was to create a wholesome, quick, and easy oatmeal bar with little ingredients and a whole lot of taste. I also wanted a bar that you could easily adapt using your favorite mix-ins or whatever you have on hand. I also wanted something overloaded with peanut butter because well… duh.

In these 100% vegan bars (except for that chocolate drizzle!) you’ll find your standard kitchen staples.  Nothing weird, nothing requiring a google search, and quite certainly nothing you’ll have to visit a special grocery store for.

Whole wheat flour, oats, a touch of brown sugar, baking soda, peanut butter, more peanut butter, even MORE peanut butter, and some chunks for texture.  I added dairy-free chocolate chips and raisins to my bars, but feel free to add your favorites!  Dried cranberries, white chocolate, more nuts, seeds, dried banana chips, etc.

Disclaimer: I am mildly obsessed with raisins and I don’t care if this makes me an old woman.

Each bar is rather dense and holds its own. They’re soft, rather moist and not dry in the slightest. I kept my bars in the refrigerator and LOVED biting into them cold.  The chilled chocolate chips and peanut butter combination is spot on and easily filled me up when I wanted a snack or something to bring to work. Or a midnight munchie.

Midnight bites happened a lot with these babies!

In addition to adding in whichever chunks-of-stuff you’d like, you could easily make these bars your own by adding in more or less brown sugar.  I found that 1/2 cup was plenty and didn’t make these bars overly sweet, especially since I added chocolate chips and a light chocolate drizzle. Chocolate was a complete necessity to my peanut butter bars.

Peanut butter & chocolate: saving tastebuds everywhere on this blog.

Healthy Peanut Butter Chunk Oatmeal Bars |

I’m a huge sucker for healthy recipes requiring a small number of ingredients and taking as little time as possible. With only 8 common ingredients, plus your little add-ins, I’m claiming these bars to be just as easy as my 5 ingredient healthy peanut butter chocolate energy bites. And they only take about 25 minutes to make start-to-finish! :)

I hate long ingredient lists and recipes taking for-ev-errrr in the kitchen.  None of that with these!

Oh! And these bars are completely vegan.  I used dairy free chocolate chips and almond milk in the dough, but melted regular chocolate chips with peanut butter as the chocolate drizzle.  The drizzle is completely optional and you could make it with dairy-free chocolate chips if a vegan bar is what you’re going for.

Healthy Peanut Butter Chunk Oatmeal Bars |

A small and common ingredient list, a whole lot of peanut butter, chocolate for my tastebuds, no butter or oil to keep my skinny jeans looking fab, chewy plump raisins, and a recipe taking less than 25 minutes.

So as I sit here getting over a tummy-ache as I write this post, eating peanut butter spread on saltine crackers – exactly what I had for lunch AND breakfast, we can just go ahead and answer that first question with a huge no.

There is never such a thing as too much peanut butter.

Healthy Peanut Butter Chunk Oatmeal Bars

Yield: 12-16 bars, depending how large you cut them

Print Recipe

Soft and chewy peanut butter oatmeal bars made with healthy, wholesome ingredients. The chocolate is optional. Sort of.


  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup (250g) creamy peanut butter (or chunky)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (127g) whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup (80g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk (I used almond milk, but use whichever you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup (90g) dairy-free chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup (70g) raisins (or whichever mix-ins you'd like)


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.

With an electric or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the brown sugar and peanut butter on medium speed until light in color and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the vanilla, scraping down the sides as needed.

On medium speed, add in the flour, oats, salt, and baking soda. The dough will be very thick and clumpy, but it will come together. Slowly add the milk in a steady stream, mixing until a dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips and raisins. Use your hands to make sure everything is combined, if needed.

Once dough is completely combined, press it lightly into the prepared baking dish. Bake for about 17-20 minutes until the bars are lightly golden and set. Allow to cool completely and cut into squares. I keep mine in the refrigerator in a covered container. Bars will be good stored up to 2 weeks.

Additional Notes:

*I melted 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter for the chocolate drizzle. This is completely optional. Be sure to use whichever mix-ins you like instead of the called for chocolate chips and raisins.

    I love this recipe so much! I swear I have made these bars 10 times this summer. Now I have to buy peanut butter in bulk! I keep mine in the refrigerator too and I just can’t keep my hands off them!

      Erin, this recipe is my favorite. I make these bars as much as you do, trust me! I love to keep them in the fridge and have one before or after a workout or as a snack in the afternoon – and even dessert sometimes! Glad you love them too! PB in bulk – yes, I know what you mean!

    Sally- you are a sweet genius. You need to go on Food Network. You need to be on the Today Show…or ANY show that can spotlight your brilliant work.

    In the past couple of days I’ve made your peanut butter banana choc. chip bars, cinnamon b. bread and I’ve made these healthy PB chuck oatbars twice! I love this recipe and I know why it’s a favorite of yours. The first time I made it, I didn’t have raisins…but they were still good. I made them today with choco. chips and raisins and they are amazing. I like them cold out of the fridge. It is soooooo frickin’ hot here in Cali!

    P.S. I loved the blue dress that u had showed ur followers a couple posts ago. When you go to your functions take a pic of urself in it. :) its pretty

    LOVE LOVE LOVE! I have been making these 1-2 times weekly for the past 3 weeks! I had to change a few things to use what I had on hand. White instead of whole wheat flour, and instant oats because I have a huge can if it. I am so addicted to these! My kids love them too. Today I was out of chocolate chips. I had a hand full of peanut M&M’s so I broke them into pieces and threw them in. The peanuts in there are great!

    Thank you for this recipe!

    I love these healthy bars (I made them sugar free), they are excellent and the recipe is added to my favs. I am team peanut butter also, with or without chocolate! I used stevia with some molasses as sweetener and unsweetened baking chocolate grated about 1/2 the size of chocolate chips. I forgot the baking powder and so had to cook them a bit longer. I am looking forward to trying them with the baking powder and different add-ins. Thanks for the recipe and love your website!


    • Sallyreplied on October 26th, 2013 at 10:07 am

    Ok, I’ve been making way too many unhealthy and delicious things. I knew it was time for something healthy (and delicious). I always scroll through comments to see what people who have actually made the recipe have to say so let me contribute in return. I made these bars exacly as is and they were so so good. Like REALLY good. They are chewy, but the oats give them this great texture, the dark chocolate chips are a must in my book to offset the peanut butter flavor, and that chocolate peanut butter glaze is perfection. I had these for breakfast, as a snack with tea, as a makeshift lunch… everyone who tried these loved them. Thanks Sally for another great recipe!

    We’re enjoying these, Sally! Thanks for the recipe. Any tips on cutting them? Even with a sharp knife, they seem to break apart at the edge when I’m cutting them. I don’t mind too much, but I was wondering if there’s a special way to do it?

    PS. I’ll be pre-ordering your book and I know I’ll love it! Congrats on your success!!


    • Sallyreplied on January 22nd, 2014 at 10:48 am

      Hey Kristina, they do sometimes break apart when cutting. I make them more than any other recipe on my blog and sometimes I put them in the refrigerator to chill and then cut. That seems to help! Thank you for the congrats, it means a ton!

    Hi- I made these without a mixer and though delish, they were crumbly and fragile and dry in spots. Did I undermix?

    Didn’t use any add ins.


    • Danareplied on July 27th, 2014 at 5:16 pm

      This happened to me as well. I think next time I’ll try it with more liquid, so perhaps a little more milk so they’re not so dry, or agave

    Hi Sally! Accidentally found this recipe when searching for healthy ways to bake with the two 3 pound jars of peanut butter sitting lonely on my shelf. I loved this recipe and am looking forward to trying your other healthy baking options. I too am a baking addict but trying to keep the pounds off as I recently lost 40 pounds. Though this can be hard, having a daily sensible treat has kept me on course. So happy to meet you! Thanks for the healthier delicious options. Keep them coming!

    Rachaelposted February 8, 2014 at 10:54 pm

    Hi Sally:
    I am eager to make these, and I have asked you this probably many times before but quick oats would be okay right?
    I am just so hesitant when I see “old-fashioned rolled oats” on your ingredient list because I am not sure if I could use quick oats or not whenever I see it. So I am so sorry if I have asked this before in other recipes!

    And assuming that you can use quick oats in your raisinet cookies, you can use them in your peanutbutter oatmeal scotchies too right?

    In fact, I would think that using quick oats for any oatmeal cookie (including the good ol’fashioned oatmeal raisin cookie)…


    • Sallyreplied on February 9th, 2014 at 9:31 am

      Hi Rachael – you can use quick oats here. I don’t suggest using quick oats in my raisinet oatmeal cookies or my PB oatmeal scotchies though… because those recipes were created using a specific amount of flour vs oats. Quick oats, which are more powdery (flour-y) than whole oats, may change the texture of the baked cookie. However, you are more than welcome to try!

    Kellyposted February 18, 2014 at 11:23 am

    I made these to try and replicate a granola bar a friend of mine has bought at our local farmers market. She says these are better than the ones she bought. I replaced oat flour for the whole wheat flour. These are awesome!

    Lillyposted February 28, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    I just made these and I cooked them for 20 minutes and they came out a little crumbly did I do something wrong by over baking? Or are they supposed to be like that? Sorry for the questions!


    • Sallyreplied on March 1st, 2014 at 7:40 am

      They’re slightly crumbly, yes. But over baking will make them even more crumbly, so try only about 17 minutes if you make them again.

    Hi Sally!

    I’ve made these peanut butter bars so many times they are pretty much a staple in our house, so thank you :) I am wondering if it is possible to substitute honey for the sugar and if so what would the approximate conversion for that be?



    • Sallyreplied on March 24th, 2014 at 3:31 pm

      I’ve never tested these with an unrefined sugar alternative, Grace. So I can’t say what would and would not work. If you test it out, let me know!

    PUNIFAposted May 21, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    i just made these yesterday and gah! i am in love!

    I did change a few small things: I used 1/3 cup coconut sugar plus a little molasses (i might reduce this next time as i try to limit sugar as much as possible and they were plenty sweet!) and since coconut sugar is a bit notorious for drying out baked goods i used 1/2 cup applesauce instead of the almond milk (i needed two tablespoons of almond milk in addition to the applesauce!). I also used homemade peanut butter.

    these are sooooo so good and comforting. i think the applesauce helped bind everything together cos they are not crumbly at all (not even when i sliced them pretty much right out of the oven… i am impatient). next time i’m gonna try em with oat flour, a bit less sugar, and i might replace some of the pb with more applesauce.

    Bethposted June 18, 2014 at 1:51 am

    YUM. I have made these about 6 times in 8 weeks. And I always eat most of the pan because my hubby isn’t a pb freak like I am. I have tinkered and used banana in place of 1/2 the PB, reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup b/c of the banana sweetness, added butterscotch chips instead of raisins, added cocoa powder, and added flaxseed to make them more lactation friendly. They are always delicious, though I have found that with the addition of banana I have to cut way back on the almond milk. Thanks for this fabulous recipe!

    But for my mix-ins I used white chocolate chips and heath bar pieces (my two mix ins that I always keep on hand) and made the drizzle with white chocolate and peanut butter.

    What kind do you usually prefer? An all natural? Or name brand sugar-filled one?

    Thank you for this recipe. It’s perfect for when you want to bring a treat that is not too desserty! I skipped raisins and added sunflower seeds, which I thought was very good.

    Just trying this yummy recipe with my 3yr old who loves baking. I’m just wondering how long they would keep in the fridge? :)

      just ignore that… read to the bottom of the recipe :) … Can’t wait to try… looks yummy!

      I keep mine in the refrigerator in a covered container. Bars will be good stored up to 2 weeks.

    I am totally peanut butter crazy so when I found these I was so excited! I made them last night but doubled the ingredients for a larger tin and more bars (or slice as we call it in Australia). I also added chopped dried apricot instead of the raisins. It is a little crumbly – do you think adding an egg would help it bind together better? They are delicious though :)

      An egg would help, yes. Thanks Rachel. Happy you like them!

    Hi Sally,

    I doubled this recipe since I only had a 9×13 inch pan. My mom decided to cook these for 40 minutes because they were underdone after 20-25 minutes. They were super thick and really hard and dry once they were finally pulled out. Do you have any suggestions as to how ling this should cook for?

    Tried the peanut oatmeal bars this week and they were fabulous! Satisfying snack and healthy too! Can I share this recipe on my blog?

    have you ever doubled this recipe? I was wondering the baking time if doubled? My family loves these and I’m taking them to a family gathering and 1 recipe definitely isn’t enough :)

      Absolutely! Double and bake in a 9×13 pan. Unsure of the exact bake time– I’d say around 35 minutes.
