No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Simple and delicious no bake Chocolate Oat Bars - a great dessert to enjoy any time of year without heating up the house!

I find it hard to want to get in the kitchen during the middle of the summer in Arizona. I mean, who can blame me when temps are at 115?! This place is HOT, but that doesn’t mean our desire for treats is gone. Instead, we try to make as many quick and no bake treats as possible. We recently tried some No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars that the entire family loved, and I wanted to share the recipe with y’all today.

These Oat bars were like a more chocolate-y and delicious granola bar, which means they were loved by all. Layers of oat and chocolate all topped off with a drizzle of even more chocolate made up this yummy treat. The best part? NO BAKING involved!! Not only are these perfect for summer time, but they’re great all year long and can give you the feel of a delicious baked chocolate and oat treat without actually having to bake them!

    You are so welcome! I hope they like them, as much as we do!

Laurie

Should that maybe be half a cup of butter?

Terry

Is there some trick to getting the recipes to print? There are so many ads on the page, my print command does nothing. The print button on the recipe doesn’t work either.

    Lil' Luna

    I’m sorry you are having trouble. There isn’t a trick, if the curser is over the recipe, the print option should be there. I’m not sure what could be causing it not to print. I hope you can get it worked out.

Peggy Thomson

Everything looks delicious but My printer doesn’t work right now so
I can’t print these beautiful and delicious looking receipts.
Thanks for sharing all.

    Kristyn Merkley

    You are so welcome! I hope you can print them soon! I’d love to know what you think 🙂

I used cream cheese in the chocolate filling. It was thick, creamy, chocolatey and perfect to layer.
