Healthy 4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Bars!

Peanut Butter bars are the best! Those yummy school lunch peanut butter bars were the stuff of dreams. These healthy 4-ingredient no bake peanut butter bars are a variation that requires just 4 real ingredients, no flour--so it can easily be made gluten free, and needs no baking.


Let's make a healthy treat to keep those health goals on track!



I love peanut butter. It's something I crave pretty regularly. I love these peanut butter bars because they are made of healthy ingredients. They are still very caloric, but they are delightful and perfect for a healthy dessert on a warm evening. 


They are very filling and satisfying. Just one piece is like a homemade protein bar, great for keeping your sweet tooth satisfied and your tummy fuller longer.


You can substitute the peanut butter with any other nut butter. You can substitute the oats with gluten-free oats. 



I spent all of 2021 working on a healthy lifestyle and losing (and keeping off) 50 pounds! 


I did it by working out hard, eating right and following 3 rules:

  • No eating after 7pm
  • Only drink water (no other beverages)
  • Cut out simple carbohydrates (like bread, rice, pasta, etc)
But, I didn't give up my favorite foods. I ate a treat every single day! Just in the right quantity.


These peanut butter bars were a perfect treat. I lost 50 pounds in 10 months, which was a very healthy (but sometimes frustratingly slow) time. 


I'm super happy with how healthy and strong I feel. I have never been this strong in my life. I love it!



Mix the ingredients and press into a baking dish. Melt the topping and spread it over the top. Then cover and place in the fridge for a couple hours until the chocolate topping hardens.



Then cut into pieces and eat one per day--or serve them to family and guests!


Recipe for Healthy 4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Bars:

Next, melt 1 Cup of Chocolate Chips with 2 TBSP Peanut Butter to make a fudgy frosting. Smooth it over the top.

Cover the baking dish and place in the refrigerator for a couple hours. Then cut into 16 pieces and enjoy!
