Ingredients

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter

How to make Easy No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

Step 1: Using a parchment paper, line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish.

Step 2: In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Heat until the butter has melted over medium-low heat while stirring to mix. Then, add in the oats, ground cinnamon, and salt.

Step 3: Cook for approximately 5 minutes while stirring.

Step 4: In the prepared baking pan, pour half of the mixture. Spread and press on the bottom of the pan.

Step 5: In a liquid measuring cup, add the chocolate chips with peanut butter. Melt in the microwave in 30-second increments until completely melted.

Step 6: Reserve some of the chocolate and peanut butter mixture. And pour the rest into the pan. Top it with the rest of the oat mixture. Slightly pressing down.

Step 7: Then, drizzle over the entire pan the reserved chocolate and peanut butter mixture.

Step 8: Place in the fridge to chill for at least 4 hours before serving. Enjoy!
