No-Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

 A friend on Facebook made and posted these a few weeks ago, and I couldn't help but make them too. They use a lot of butter but they are SO good.  They are also super quick and easy to make.  Only 6 ingredients!  You just use the stove to mix the oat mixture and then melt butter and peanut butter together.  These were gone super quickly.  (Some of the pics are of the bars at room temp; others are of them after being in the fridge.)

No-Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
adapted from All Simply Recipes (via

1 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (mini ones work great)
1/2 cup peanut butter

1.  Grease a 9×9 inch square pan.  Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in the oats. Cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until ingredients are well blended. Press half of mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Reserve the other half for topping.
2.  Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crust in the pan, and spread evenly with a knife or the back of a spoon.

3.  Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate layer, pressing in gently. Cover, and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before cutting into bars. (Or serve cold.)
