No Bake Breakfast Bars
Packed with protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats, these no bake breakfast bars make a great snack between breakfast and lunch.
5 cups uncooked oatmeal (quick oats)
1 1/3 cups natural peanut butter
1 cup coconut milk or cream
3 Tbs agave nectar or maple syrup
1. Pour coconut milk into bowl (if using cream whisk until smooth). Add agave nectar and peanut butter and mix well.
2. Add uncooked oatmeal and mix well. You may want to grease your hands or use gloves as mixture is quite sticky at this point.
3. Transfer to a 9×13 dish and flatten.
4. Chill in the fridge overnight (or minimum 2hrs) then cut into 12 or 16 bars.
You can always “dress” up your bars by adding diced dried fruit, almond slivers, or toasted coconut.
