An easy no-bake gluten-free treat that makes the perfect snack.
Ingredients
  • 1 ¾ cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 ⅓ cup sliced almonds, coarsely chopped (if making nut-free, substitute with 1 ⅓ additional cups of quick-cooking oats)
  • 1 cup Nestlé® Toll House® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (or almond butter or sunbutter)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Line an 8x8" pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Using a small handheld chopper (or your chef's knife), give your almonds a coarse chop.
  3. Add the peanut butter and honey to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together your oatmeal, coarsely chopped almonds, chocolate morsels, ground, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
  5. Add the peanut butter & honey mixture (make sure it has cooled so you don't melt your chocolate morsels) and your vanilla extract. Mix well.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the pan and then press these in the pan, until they are pressed evenly throughout. I like to spray a little cooking spray on a little plastic wrap to assist with getting these even.
  7. Place the pan in the refrigerator for a half hour.
  8. Remove and slice into bars. Wrap bars individually in plastic wrap or in baggies for snacks and lunches.
