No Bake Raspberry White Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars

These delectable no-bake oat bars are packed full of seeds, peanut butter, raspberries and white chocolate. Perfect if you’re looking for an easy recipe that doesn’t require using an oven on a hot day!

Ingredients (16 squares):

2½ cups oats

2/3 cup raw, shelled pumpkin seeds

2/3 cup vegan white chocolate chips

1/3 cup frozen raspberries

3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon peanut butter

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons vegan butter

1/2 cup maple syrup

Utensils: 8x8in baking tin | parchment paper | large bowl | saucepan | metal spoon

Directions:

Line an 8x8in baking pan with parchment paper.

Add the oats, pumpkin seeds and white chocolate chips in a large bowl and mix together well.

In a saucepan, melt over medium heat the peanut butter, vegan butter and maple syrup until it starts to bubble – stir continuously. Then pour the peanut butter mixture over the oats and mix really well with a metal spoon.

Transfer half the mixture into the lined baking tin and press down firmly making it as even and compact as possible then evenly distribute the raspberries on top of the mixture – crush each one with the back of a spoon to flatten slightly.

Top with the remaining oat mixture and press down firmly making it as even and compact as possible.

Chill in the freezer for an hour before cutting into the 16 squares and then store in the fridge.

  1. These sound amazing! We have wild blackberries growing around my house so I’d love to do a blackberry version of these. It’s so simple but I bet they’re so delicious. xx

  2. Ah that looks delicious! I wanna try this but I don’t know where to buy pumpkin seeds or raspberries where I’m from. Do you maybe have any suggestion for alternatives?

    1. You can replace the pumpkin seeds with sunflower seeds, pine nuts or any chopped nut that you like (if not allergic, etc) and you can use a fruit spread/jam/jelly instead of the raspberries or any other berry-style fruit. The great thing about this recipe is you can try what you like as most substitutions should work!

      1. Oh my! That’s great!! Now I really want to try this out especially since my mom bought a jar of homemade peanut butter from her colleague! Gonna shop for the rest of the ingredients on my next grocery shopping!!

  3. Ooh, these sound amazing!! Also, I like that the ingredients are really simple – I always like the idea of no-bake desserts, but then find that I’d have to go to a lot of expense and/or effort to get the ingredients, which kind of defeats the point. But these, I’d only have to buy a few things. Thanks so much for sharing, I’ll definitely be making them!
