Ingredients

Oat Layer:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer:

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8”square baking dish with parchment paper, set aside.

Make the chocolate peanut butter layer:

  1. In a large, microwave safe dish, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter. Start by heating for 60 seconds, then stir and heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth. Set aside.

Make the oat layer:

  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in brown sugar and sea salt. Stir until well-mixed and sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add vanilla and stir until combined.
  4. Turn heat to low and add oats. Cook on low for about 2 minutes, or until ingredients are well combined.

Putting it together:

  1. Press about half of your mixture into the bottom of your prepared baking dish with a greased spatula. (Reserve the other half to sprinkle on top).
  2. Pour the chocolate peanut butter mixture gently and slowly over the bottom layer. Reserving about 2-3 TBS to drizzle on top.
  3. Very gently crumble the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate peanut butter layer. Gently move/press it into place, making sure the entire top is covered.
  4. Drizzle the top with your remaining chocolate/peanut butter mixture.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight (until chocolate is set).
  6. Let the bars come to room temperature again before cutting into squares! Serve and enjoy!
  7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week (if they last that long)!
