Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate chips

Preparation

  1. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add 1 cup of the peanut butter and the maple syrup. Microwave in 20-second increments, whisking after each time, until melted. Add the oats. Stir and fold until thoroughly combined. Scoop oat mixture into the prepared baking dish. Using a rubber spatula, smooth the mixture into an even layer. Set aside.
  3. In the same bowl, combine chocolate chips and the remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter and microwave in 30-second increments until melted. Stir and pour chocolate mixture over bars, spreading out evenly with rubber spatula or back of spoon.
  4. Freeze for 45 minutes, or until firm. Remove from freezer and slice into 32 bites. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks
