I first started making these bars shortly after having my first baby. They were the perfect easy-to-grab snack between nursing sessions. I loved how quickly they came together and how tasty they were!

Now, I still love them! And because they are so easy, my kids make them with me too! They’re great to make with toddlers, because there’s a whole lot of easy scooping. They’re also wonderful to make with bigger kids because they can mix at the stove top and make them on their own!

  3. Once the bars are fully chilled and hardened, cut into 8 pieces, and store in the fridge.

Substitution ideas

  • Use any nut or seed butter in place of the peanut butter
  • Quick oats would work instead of rolled oats
  • Don’t have shredded coconut? Try sunflower seeds instead

Is there a coconut oil sub that would be good?

I too love no bake stuff. When I was on maternity leave my favorite was some peanut butter cookie dough balls that I got from (never)home maker. I made them so much that I needed a break from them for awhile. Currently my go-to snack is peanut butter protein bars from concrete runner.

I loved being in the kitchen when my son was newborn (I still do – he is just more active now at 10 months old) – he would just hang out in his bouncy seat and we’d talk and sing until he’d fall asleep.

The coconut oil hardens when cold, so you could sub in butter which would act similarly. I wouldn’t sub in a different oil since it would be a lot softer and might not keep its form.

I NEVER watch TV! I’m always on my ipad though, and the only time i really get to sit down is when im nursing, so it’s a good excuse to make myself stop and take a break. those no bake squares look great, I really need to make something like that right now, Ive been craving some sort of no bakes lately!

These are delicious!! I will definitely be making them again. They didn’t seem to stick together and they fell apart easily. However, still very tasty! Do you have any suggestions on how to make them less crumbly? Do you heat the peanut butter, coconut oil, etc. to a certain temperature?

Ooops, more time in the refrigerator was all that was needed. So good!!!

I just made a variation this weekend and yes, the fridge helps them set up perfectly! Heat from a warm makes the coconut oil soft.
