2 cups rolled oats

1 cup of natural peanut butter

1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips or chopped dried fruit (optional)

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Add the mixture to a parchment lined 9×9 pan and press evenly to the edges.
  4. Cook in a preheated 350° oven for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown. Let cool and cut into 12 bars.
