Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars.

Peanut butter and chocolate craving? These healthy peanut butter bars will make you feel like you’re indulging! Bonus: they’re no bake!

No-Bake Healthy Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars - everyone will love these!

Welcome to my 98574 peanut butter granola bar recipe. Sorry? I can’t help it. I make these things all the time!

Truth be told, underneath all the sprinkles and buttercream, I truly am a health nut at heart.  I adore my veggies, my workout endorphins, and my yoga mat. Nomaste.

Granola and granola bars are the kinds of recipes I make all the time.   I like to call them my brain fuel.  Running fuel. Get-me-through-another-work-day fuel. Christmas present shopping fuel.  And of course, they are my cookie baking fuel. Obviously.

I do not post all of the healthier items I make because I know you all love your cookies so much, but in my kitchen there is a balance of seemingly healthy snacks and decadent sweets.

No-Bake Healthy Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars - everyone will love these!

Today I’m sharing perhaps the EASIEST granola bar recipe you will ever make.  No baking involved, no thinking involved, a TON of peanut butter involved, and there’s chocolate.  Win, win, win.

The best part about these?  The ingredient list is SO small and you probably have everything sitting in your pantry right now.  As much as I adore granola bars, I have a hard time justifying buying them at the store.  They are loaded with so much gunk I can’t even pronounce and they are WAY overpriced.

Homemade varieties are not only cheaper, but you have complete control of what you’re putting into the mix.   Today’s no-bake granola bars include nothing weird, nothing requiring a google search, and quite certainly nothing you’ll have to visit a special grocery store for.

Healthy Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars

I don’t know about you, but I simply adore trail mix.  The blend of salty nuts, sweet raisins, and chocolate chips is truly my weakness.  What is it about that stuff? I can NEVER put it down!  After about my 5th huge handful of the stuff one evening, I decided to incorporate it into a homemade bar.  With a whole lotta peanut butter.  Would you expect anything else?

The base of this recipe are old-fashioned oats, ground flax, and nuts.  I pulverized cashews and almonds in my food processor for about 10 seconds to break them down.  They act more as a base ingredient than an add-in in these.  You may use peanuts, pecans, walnuts, or a combination of any nut instead – whatever is easiest for you.

I used up all my pecans in my Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Candied Nuts and was happily left with almonds and cashews for this recipe.  No complaints here; I simply adore crunchy almonds and buttery rich cashews.  Mmmm.

When I ground them up in the food processor, I made sure to leave a *few* big chunks for texture purposes – I wanted the bars to have a nice chunky texture in every bite.

Lots of little dried fruits make an appearance as well – a plethora of raisins and dried cranberries hopped into the mixing bowl.  You could also try dried cherries, dried apples, or banana chips.  The best part?  Be sure to throw in some chocolate chips – if you’re looking for a truly guilt-free treat, leave them out.  That’s obviously up to you. 😉

 Really, the world is your oyster with these no-bake granola bars and you can get creative mixing and matching your favorites.

The star of the show is the peanut butter. We clearly can’t leave that stuff out. A whopping full cup of melted peanut butter, mixed with a bit of honey, will shower the dry ingredients in one sticky pour.  Each bite of the bar tastes like a chewy, dense form of pure peanut butter with a few fruity & nutty chunks mixed in.  Love.

The peanut butter and honey do a fine job binding the nuts and oats – much like how they held together all of the ingredients in my Peanut Butter Cup Granola.  <– yum.

Once you’ve got it all into a big bowl – the oats, ground flax, pulverized nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and honey – mix it all up and pack it down nice and tight into an 8×8 square baking pan.  Pack, pack, pack it down as tight as you can into the pan, so that everything can meld together and stick as the bars set up in the refrigerator.  Like I said, these are no-bake granola bars and the “baking” happens in the refrigerator.  My oven needs a break every now and then. 😉

The bars take about an hour to set up – not too shabby, considering they only take about 5 minutes to put together. Cut them into 16 generous squares and get ready to enter peanut butter oblivion.  Truly, these are the best peanut butter granola bars I have yet to make.  All of the different textures – the squishy dried fruit, the crunchy salty nuts, chewy oats, stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth peanut butter, and the dots of chocolate – work SO well together.

No-Bake Healthy Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars - everyone will love these!

Much like ordinary trail mix, I could not stop picking at these bars.  Eat one, break another in half… come back for another piece… then another.  Repeat.  Yeah, you’re gonna love these too. 😉

Peanut butter and chocolate craving? These healthy peanut butter bars will make you feel like you're indulging! Bonus: they're no bake! Bars are gluten free if using certified gluten free oats.


  • 2/3 cup whole almonds
  • 2/3 cup whole cashews
  • 1 and 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup ground flax
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup honey (or light corn syrup, or maple syrup)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter, melted


Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. Leave extra on the sides to use as handles for removing the bars when they are finished. Set aside.

In a food processor (or blender), pulverize the almonds and cashews for about 10 seconds into small pieces, leaving some large chunks in tact. In a large bowl, combine the oats, ground flax, crushed nuts, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and raisins. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.
Mix together melted peanut butter and honey in a small bowl and pour over the dry ingredients. Mix until each bit is fully coated. Scoop the mixture into prepared baking dish and press firmly until the tops are completely even. You'll want to pack it down nice and tight.

Place bars into the refrigerator to set up for at least one hour. Cut into 16 squares. Bars may be stored at room temperature for up to 10 days and in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.

      Yes, you may use natural peanut butter in these bars Becky! And I know what you mean about the healthier treats this time of year – I’m trying to stay smart these few weeks, but I know I will be reaching for the healthier things after the holidays for sure.

    I LOVE these!! With all the shopping madness that has been going on I could use these scrumptious bars. Besides they are packed with nuts so my Hubby will love them too! PS: I can see your pin it button is not showing the count either… And I thought it was only on my blog…


    • Sallyreplied on December 16th, 2012 at 3:11 pm

      The pin it button isn’t working for many sites – I believe it is a Pinterest bug and I’ve read that they are working on it. It’s so annoying! I like to see how my goodies are doing. :) Glad you adore this recipe like I do, Anna! And yes, lots of big chunks of nuts in each bite. I LOVE that!

    Homemade granola bars are one of my favorite treats. Such a bonus that they’re healthy. While I can’t get into yoga, my life would be a mess without tons of exercise and its endorphins and lots of fruit and veggies. Yay for cauliflower and Brussels sprouts!


    • Sallyreplied on December 16th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

      Cauliflower and brussels sprouts – yes and YES! I adore both veggies SO much. And oh my goodness, my life would be haywire without my endorphins and workout regimen. :) Thanks Laura!

    I don’t like trail mix, dried fruit or flax. Can I just use more chocolate chips? So, um, another 2 1/3 cups chocolate? 😀 Kidding, kidding!

    And I’m sure nobody minds a 42425th peanut butter granola bar recipe. With peanut butter, the more the merrier. :)

    Melissaposted January 10, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    These are setting up right now, can’t wait to see how they turn out! Hoping they will be a hit for both kiddo and hubby… Now, if I can just find a recipe without peanut butter or bananas or pumpkin for me to try…. (3 things I really don’t like, yet they’re in pretty much every granola bar recipe I’ve found!)
    Made the recipe plain, but subbed walnuts since I didn’t have cashews. Once in the pan, pressed sun maids fruit bits into half, and mini choc chips in the other (fruit for kid, choc for hubs).
    Are these bars crunchy or chewey? Would it work to bake them for a bit to get them crunchier?


    • Sallyreplied on January 11th, 2013 at 6:26 am

      Hi Melissa! So glad you are making these trail mix bars. They are dense, chewy granola bars. Not crunchy in the slightest. I’m not a huge fan of crunchy granola bars, so I don’t have any recipes on my website since I don’t eat them. I do have crunchy granola recipes: and I also have a soft granola bar recipe without peanut butter, bananas, and pumpkin:


      • Melissareplied on January 11th, 2013 at 8:53 am

        So, hubby LOVED these!! He said he wouldn’t change a thing and they are his #1 new favorite pintrest recipe. :) Looks like i’ll be making these often… The kiddo liked them too. So glad to have another healthy snack to add to my stash!
        I subbed walnuts since I didn’t have cashews, used half crunchy & half creamy peanut butter, and I did a mix of honey and maple syrup. For the add ins, since hubs doesn’t like raisins and I don’t give the kiddo chocolate, I didn’t mix them in, but I put them on top (fruit on one half, choc on the other) and pressed in when I put it all in the pan – worked great! I’ll look forward to trying some of those other recipes you mentioned. :)

        • Sallyreplied on January 11th, 2013 at 1:06 pm

          SO SO glad you and your family love these, Melissa! I want to test out all different kinds of add-ins next time.

      Hi Alyssa, my website doesn’t provide nutritional stats as its focus isn’t on health. But I wouldn’t assume these to be low in calories with all the pb and nuts. Wholesome, whole food, and nutritional yes. Thank u!

    I made these yesterday and they were so good! I actually bought the combo chocolate chip, almonds and cashew mix from trader joe’s and it is the perfect size for this recipe. That way you don’t have to buy all three things separately! Also, I added about another 1/4 cup of peanut butter. I put them in the freezer, its like eating a healthy frozen candy bar!

    Thanks for the great recipe.

    Did you have any trouble with it being “crumbly”? Maybe because I used maple syrup instead of honey and just a touch less than 1/2 cup (because I ran out)? What do you think? Tasted great (awesome, in fact), but a little crumbly/messy for the kiddos.


    • Sallyreplied on March 12th, 2013 at 1:31 pm

      Hi Chandra! After being refrigerated for some time, the bars are a tad crumbly. You can see some crumbs in the photos. :) Glad you like the way they taste!

    • Sallyreplied on August 30th, 2013 at 10:05 am

      Hi Stephanie! I just mix everything up VERY quickly to avoid the chocolate chips from melting. Sometimes I do let the PB mixture cool slightly. Sorry I wasn’t clear about that!

    Katieposted September 9, 2013 at 11:44 am

    I made these for the first time on the weekend and they are DELICIOUS – I used chopped dried apricots and dried apples along with the nuts and choc chips. So tasty.

    Unfortunately I lost 2/3 of the batch as they disintegrated when I cut them – I too used pure maple syrup instead of stickier honey. I’d probably try the honey next time to try to get it all to bind together a bit better. More peanut butter may help as well.

    Either way, thank you for the recipe!!


    • Sallyreplied on September 9th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

      That’s great, Katie! And I usually just use honey. It’s thicker and stickier, I agree. I appreciate you reporting back. Love dried apricots!

    What would change in this recipe if I used chopped nuts? I’m making for my toddler & rest of the family. Would I use less or more nuts to compensate? Or other ingredients? Can’t wait to try!


    • Sallyreplied on October 8th, 2013 at 6:01 pm

      To compensate for what ingredients? You can just add the chopped nuts with the rest of the ingredients. Just try to only use 1 cup total of add-ins, give or take.


      • Reneereplied on October 17th, 2013 at 1:15 am

        Oops I meant to say I bought prechopped nuts. I read the recipe & it stated whole nuts. Would I still measure the nuts as 2/3 cup each of chopped nuts?

        • Sallyreplied on October 17th, 2013 at 6:30 am

          2/3 cup of chopped nuts would be fine.

      • Reneereplied on October 17th, 2013 at 10:37 pm

        They turned out amazing! We didn’t have honey on hand so ended up using maple syrup (just under a half cup we had) and they turned out pretty good- a little crumbly but still was able to cut squares. I added more nuts, a tad more flax seeds, & dried fruit (cherries & raisins) instead of chocolate chips.

    Hi Sally — I know this an older recipe of yours, but I just wanted to tell you I’ve been making a batch of these trail mix bars in one form or another literally every week since I came across this page a few months ago. I love how it’s so customizable … I make them as you wrote them all the time, and sometimes mix it up with some almond butter, sunflower seeds, different nuts … they always turn out so well! I’ve made lots of your recipes (including my second favorite — the chocolate peanut butter smoothie) and love reading your blog, thanks for all your hard work!

    These are the BEST granola bars I have made at home. And I have tried A LOT of recipes. I love how easy they are. I read another post about putting them in the freezer. Going in tonight because I could eat the entire batch!

    Hi Sally,

    Can i substitute ground sesame seeds for ground flax?

      That would work, as long as the seeds are fully ground into tahini.

    Hi Sally – I made these this weekend and just had one this morning. I AM IN LOOOOOVE. The combination of flavors is amazing! I followed your recipe with the raisins and dried cranberries. I also used natural peanut butter and it worked perfectly. They are a fabulous consistently, and nice and filling. Plus super easy to make which I adore. It doesn’t get much better than this! What an amazing treat that you can feel good about. So glad I found this recipe and made the bars! I agree that you should post MORE of your healthy recipes. :)

    OH MY GOODNESS. These are incredible. I made a batch of these bars and I scarfed down three in a sitting! (of course I was on the treadmill for an hour, so is it justified? Maybe?). Will definitely make again!!

      Haha totally justified Katie. Thanks for reporting back!

    They look amazing! Definately making them this weekend. And I would seriously love to see all of your healthy snack recipes. I love cooking and baking and so do all the people I work with. (By that, of course I mean they love when I bake and bring them some) Anyway, they always enjoy the fatty, buttery, oily stuff which I do bake often, mostly for them. But I need some healthy snacks to keep around the house and these will be perfect. And any others you could share that I can whip up and store for the week, that would be great!

    Sally- I just made these and they are wonderful! I added in some mini M&Ms and they taste a bit like Monster cookies without (as much) guilt! Now, if I can just keep from eating the whole pan myself… Thanks for the recipe! :)

      sounds delicious Julie!

    I just knew I had to try these and yes had all the ingredients. I had tried a few other recipes for different bars and let me tell you these were the easiest and best tasting!!!! I added walnuts to my nut mix and used natural peanut butter. Also used maple syrup. ..wonder if just peanut butter would work?


    • Sallyreplied on January 29th, 2015 at 8:36 am

      Hi Monica. You mean just peanut butter and no maple syrup/honey? Most taste testers (myself included) prefer the bars with a little sweetener.

    I was just wondering if you had the nutrition facts to this recipe? I love peanut butter. I made these for my coworkers and they loved them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I made these yesterday night and they turned out delicious– I was very happy :) I have a question though- my bars didn’t stick together as well as I thought they would, they kind of broke whenever I picked them up. I used a little less honey than what the recipe called for. Do you think that was it? Thanks again for publishing this recipe- it was amazing! :)


    • Sallyreplied on June 11th, 2015 at 7:32 am

      Ana, yes– reducing the honey (the sticky binder!) is the cause for the bars falling apart. Sometimes I like to crumble these up over yogurt. That could be a yummy way to enjoy your crumbly batch.

    Just made these for an upcoming backpacking trip because they are packed with a bunch of calorie dense ingredients and they are delicious. I love how there’s a piece of trail mix in every bite. Can’t wait to eat these out on Isle Royale :)

    All my favoirite things in one bar! Love these, have made them three times in the last three weeks and shared with my parents and brother who loved them to. Really adaptable have tried both maple syrup and honey and different nuts each time plus added the chocolate whilst everything was warm and it melted the second time – chocolate peanut butter nut bars – yum. Great post workout breakfast on the run. Thank you!

    Sally, I just ate one of these bars instead of the peanut butter M&Ms in my cabinet! They are soooo good!! Me and my toddler are both scarfing them down, and I can’t wait for my husband to try them. Thanks for this fantastic recipe I feel great about feeding my family!
