A go-to sweet treat in a no-bake bar. They are sweet, so quick to put together, and loaded with good things that not only satisfy but leave you feeling full of energy.


Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes, plus at least 60 minutes chilling time


Yields: 1 (9-inch) pan of bars


1/3 cup LouAna® Avocado Oil
2/3 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2/3 cup peanut butter
3 cups old-fashioned oats


Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.

In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring LouAna Avocado Oil, syrup, cocoa powder and salt to a boil and sustain for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until melted. Stir in oats.

Pour immediately into prepared baking pan and pack down firmly. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares or rectangles, depending on your desired size. Serve chilled or at room temperature.


We’d love to see how it turned out. Tag your photos with #LouAnaCooking on Facebook or Instagram.

    Looks great! What are nutrition facts for diabetics on insulin? Can stevia be used instead of sugar syrup???

    This recipe was a hit with my husband. I replaced cocoa powder with chocolate syrup (all I had in our food inventory), but it was a hit!
