Peanut butter, honey, and oatmeal - a winning combination. Sweet and easy. Wonderful afternoon snack for kids or adults. Cook time is freezing time.
- 1⁄3 cup thick honey
- 3⁄4 cup chunky peanut butter (I like natural peanut butter as it's not so sweet)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup oatmeal (any kind)
- 3⁄4 cup powdered milk
- 1⁄4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1⁄4 cup chocolate chips, to garnish (or garnish to taste using sesame seeds for a healthier alternative)
- Mix all ingredients, except chocolate chips, until well mixed (If too soft to work with: add a little more powdered milk and oats).
- Spread evenly on a cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle with chocolate chips or seeds.
- Cut into squares.
- Freeze for 20 minutes, then store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
Very yummy! I have made peanut butter honey no-bake treats before, but these are better than some of the ones I made in the past. The vanilla really adds a nice touch. I combined all ingredients in the food processor, and only used 1/2 c. of powdered milk. The sunflower seeds I used were salted which I thought added a nice contrast to the sweet honey. I mixed the chocolate chips in by hand. Update: They are wonderful rolled into balls and then rolled in coconut.
Very nice, i made it into balls and forgot to put the vanilla but it was still nice. I would like to try this with some cocoa powder also. Great to find such a healthy dessert recipe. I made my own peanut butter also, by processing 2 cups of roasted peanuts and 2 teaspoons of peanut oil together.
What a great recipe! These homemade bars are better tasting, less expensive, and probably much healthier, than store-bought energy bars. I made them as posted, with chocolate chips on top, and my DH and I loved (!!) them. This recipe is a keeper, for sure! Thanks for sharing, littleturtle!
