Absolutely, if you don’t like peanut butter, or have an intolerance you can swap it out for other nut butter. Almond butter, sunflower seed butter or cashew butter are great options.
Great add ins-
These no bake peanut butter oat bars are easy do dress up with additional ingredients if you want to! If you are making these for breakfast bars you can add in things like chia seeds or ground flax seeds to add more nutritional value. Chocolate chips, chopped nuts, shredded coconut and raisins also make a great addition. You can add any additions to the dry ingredients before mixing them into the peanut butter mixture or you can press them on top after putting the oatmeal peanut butter mixture in the pan.
Can I use quick oats?
This recipe is made with old fashioned oats but you can make it with quick cooking oats if you’d like or that is what you have on hand. The quick cooking oats will result in a different texture.
What is the best peanut butter to use?
Most peanut butter lovers have their favorite brand and you can use your favorite! When it comes to creamy peanut butter, natural peanut butter, or crunchy peanut butter any of them will work. Creamy peanut butter results in a great texture that really highlights the oats to create chewy oatmeal bars. I like to use natural peanut butter with no sugar so that I can control the sweetness of the bars. And crunchy peanut butter adds tasty peanut crunch to the bars.
The hardest part about these bars is waiting for them to be done! They need to set for about 8 hours so make sure to pan ahead. I like to make these in the evening so that they are ready to eat the next day!
