Crunchy Oaty Peanut Butter Bars

Crunchy, Nutty and Full of Love

First up, one of our more regular peanut butter bakes. This recipe brings together a few wholesome ingredients, making them one of the healthier ways to get your peanut butter fix. They’re oaty, crumbly, super peanuty and packed with slow releasing energy. When a batch of these are around, the children get a more substantial snack at break-time and I get a decent re-fuel after exercise. Either way, I am all over the benefits of this kind of snack.


To make 12 of these simple peanut snacks you will need:

  • 120g oats
  • 100g tahini
  • 100g crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey

This is a low faff, easy to make recipe:

  1. Get your ingredients together, plus baking tray and spatula and preheat the oven to 150 degrees F (fan setting).
  2. Mix everything together and press down in a baking tray or ceramic dish. Try to get the mixture to a fairly equal depth of around 1.5cm. If you don’t fill the whole tray don’t worry, the mixture will hold together well and keep its form. Just try to keep a straight edge.
  3. Leave in the for around 20 minutes until the bake turns a golden brown.
  4. Let the tray/dish cool for 15 minutes but not till it’s completely hard, before cutting into bars and lifting from the dish.
  5. Enjoy as soon as they’re cool enough to eat and store in an airtight container.
