Biting into these tasty no bake chocolate peanut butter raisin oat bars you’ll be surprised at how familiar they may seem.

Your first bite will encounter the delicious sweet chocolate taste and then straight after that the crunch of the peanuts. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that you’re actually eating a snickers bar!

Obviously there are distinct differences though……

These bars are all home made and not made from refined sugar.

I’ve used dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate as that’s better for you.

They’re full of good wholesome ingredients – oats, peanut butter, honey, peanuts and raisins. All ingredients which I bet you can find in most kitchen cupboards!

These bars require just 6 ingredients and 10 minutes to make. Then stick them in the fridge for a few hours, or better still overnight.

There will be no need to buy those unhealthy brand named bars I mentioned above. Very soon you’ll have perfect lunchbox sized snack bars.

They make perfect on the go snacks or a healthy dessert option too.

Plus they freeze easily so you can keep them in your freezer until you need them. That is of course if they last. I find I NEED THEM every day!

And you folks seem to love them too going by the sharing of those no bake bar recipes I’ve made on Pinterest.

So I hope I hit the spot with these too, I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below.

Talking of hill walking Mike and I are preparing for a weekend away rambling about in the Scottish mountains.

We’re off up to the Drumochter region this weekend staying in the same place that I mentioned in the last hill walking write-up, Meall Chuaich, Drumochter Winter Hillwalk.

I’ve not done a hill walking write-up for 6 months. We had particularly bad weather last time we were up in the Drumochter region in February.  There were few shots to publish, other than complete white canvass as we attempted to walk in a whiteout before calling it a day within an hour and heading back to the warm bunkhouse for beer cups of tea. 😉

However, we did get out in April where we climbed Ben More and Stob Binnein. That was an amazing day. Check out those photographs and a video too.

  1. These are perfect snacking bars, especially for my two boys who are always raiding the cookie jars. This combination is really delicious and I am really looking forward to making these. I might just have to chain up the fridge though because the most difficult part will be waiting for it to set overnight in the fridge…patience and food do not go well with the boys😃

      Ha ha, how right you are Ashika! I have very little patience when it comes to waiting for my food! I often get “hangry” waiting. 🙂

      I hope your boys enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them, and then eating them too!

      There are a few of these left frozen in the freezer…….

      Perhaps they’ll last, perhaps they wont 😉

  2. They look perfectly delicious! I love freezing bars and bites so I can take them out as needed (I like them even more frozen right out of the freezer! Nice and chewy!)

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      These take hardly any time to defrost as well Rebecca.

      That’s if you can wait that long. But seeing as you like them chewy, like me too, I think we can both safely say that they wouldn’t last that long!

  3. Oo I bet Alex would loves these!

  4. I am so not a fan of raisins HOWEVER – with peanut butter mixed in…. Um, yeahhhhh I’d EAT THAT! 😉

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I’m glad that the peanut butter mixed in is a good “raisin” why you could eat the raisins! Ha ha ha ha!

  5. 6 simple ingredients came together so beautifully in these bars! Neil – so love that they are made with honey and raisins – keeps the sugar steadier on long hikes for sure! Looking forward to those pictures AND video of your hill walking adventures!

      I always love my slow energy release home made bars when I’m hill walking Shashi.

      Somehow all that fresh air makes them taste even better! 🙂

  6. I love that you came up with these tasty bars without using any refined sugar, Neil! These sound like the perfect energy bar for some hill walking. 🙂 Speaking of hill walking, Laura and I have totally been to Ben Nevis! We didn’t climb it or anything, though. In fact, we got distracted by the distillery there at the bottom. Oops. Haha!! We also stayed in a lovely little bed and breakfast there in Fort William. I just read your post on Ben Nevis, and it totally took me back to that awesome vacation! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂

      Wow, that’s fantastic David. So glad to hear that you were in Fort William. It’s one of my favourite places, and I love climbing Ben Nevis, as you read.

      Next time you come over, let’s climb Ben Nevis, eat these no bake chocolate peanut butter raisin oat bars and then go to the distillery. That’s about the right order to do it in (I think). Although if it’s raining (which it frequently is) we could just skip the hill walking and head straight to the distillery!! 😀
