Ingredients

  • 4 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup melted peanut butter*
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, stir together the oats and honey, until oats are evenly coated. 
  • Stir in the melted peanut butter until all is well combined. If the mixture seems too dry, add a bit more honey to moisten it up. 
  • Mix in the cinnamon chips. The push into a 9x13 pan, and press down so it's evenly distributed and as flat as possible on top. 

To bake:

  • If you wish to bake them, place in oven, pre-heated to 350 degree F, for approximately 20 minutes - but keep an eye on them and check at 15 minutes to make sure the edges don't burn. Remove from oven
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting into squares. Store in a resealable bag or air tight container for up to a week. 

For no-bake option:

  • Just place the pan (cover with foil, saran wrap, or a lid if your container has one) for one hour. Then, cut and enjoy!

Notes

* To melt peanut butter, place in a microwave safe bowl, and heat for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each increment. I did two rounds of 20 seconds and that was perfect. Time may vary depending on your microwave, so keep an eye on it - you don't want to burn the peanut butter!
