These No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars come together in 10 minutes! They are a delicious gluten-free and vegan dessert recipe!




  1. Whisk together the natural peanut butter, agave, and 1/4 cup of the coconut oil until smooth.
  2. Add the oats and almond flour.
  3. Fold until combined.
  4. Transfer about 2/3 of the oat mixture to a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. I used an 8 inch round cake pan because that’s all I had one hand, but you want a smaller pan so the bars are thicker.
  5. I found it easiest to use damp hands to press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  6. Melt the chocolate and remaining 2 tablespoons coconut oil in the microwave for about 1 minute.
  7. Whisk to make the chocolate smooth and pour overtop the oat bars.
  8. Spread the chocolate out evenly.
  9. Finally, use your hands to crumble the remaining oat mixture across the top of the bars.
  10. Chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
  11. Sprinkle with sea salt, Cut into 8 – 16 squares and enjoy!
