Lately, I’ve been spending a little too much time on Pinterest. I only have a moderate amount of pins myself, but I could spend hours gazing at any pins related to home, DIY, crafts, and of course, food. In fact, I recently created two new boards to help me keep track of recipes I want to make, as well as other bloggers’ recipes that I’ve already made and loved, so that I can share them with all of you! One of the more recent additions to my board are these no-bake bars from the very lovely Lindsey of Gingerbread Bagels. I’ve had her recipe for no-bake chocolate peanut butter oat bars on my to-make list since she posted it a month ago, and when I just happened to be the lucky winner of her biscoff spread giveaway, I knew exactly what I’d be doing with it – making these bars. Not only were these very easy to throw together, but they’re a perfect no-bake dessert for bidding goodbye to summer. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! And, if you’re on Pinterest too, leave a comment with your username – I’d love to follow you!
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 cups quick cooking oats
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup Biscoff spread
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and vanilla extract.
Stir in the oats and cook the mixture over medium-low heat for a few minutes until golden.
While the oats are cooking, melt the chocolate chips and then stir in the biscoff.
Press 3/4 of the oat mixture in the bottom of a greased 8×8″ baking dish. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the oats.
Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the top.
Refrigerate the bars for 2-3 hours or until firm. Cut into squares.
