Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars

These chewypeanut butter trail mix barsare filled with healthful, wholesome ingredients like almonds, oats, nut butter, and raisins. Add chocolate chips for delicious flavor and pop them into the refrigerator to set. They’re no bake, easy, and totally customizable based on what you have or like.


Always in my regular rotation of homemade snacks, these no bake peanut butter trail mix bars are my favorite pick-me-up. The combination of chocolate chips and peanut butter make it feel like you’re indulging, while the nuts and oats keep you nourished and satisfied.

It’s a fact:1batch disappears in 24 hours. Same exact story with myno bake coconut granola bars。(Please tell me you’ve tried those by now!)



Why You NEED to Try These Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars:

  • From mixing bowl to refrigerator in 15 minutes
  • 9种简单的食材
  • No bake, chewy, soft, wholesome
  • Most of the ingredients are customizable
  • Sweet, salty, totally satisfying
  • Freeze easily

As much as I lovegranola bars,I can’t always justify buying them at the store. Obviously store-bought is the more convenient choice, but these are so simple that I end up throwing 1-2 batches together at a time. You also have complete control over what you’re putting in them. The ingredient list is pretty small and forgiving; you can make substitutions based on what you have.

Customize Them (Ingredient Substitution Ideas!)

I’ve made the bars countless times and here are the swaps I know work:

  • Instead ofalmondsor腰果,use all almonds, all cashews, or use all or a mix of peanuts, pecans, or walnuts. I don’t recommend skipping the nuts.
  • 燕麦是一个关键因素,所以我不建议任何替换。但是,您可以使用快速燕麦,如果这就是你拥有。
  • 如果你没有ground flax,添加在步骤3见配方注意的另一个1/3杯燕麦。
  • Feel free to use anydried fruityou enjoy. If the dried fruit you’re using isn’t small like dried cranberries and raisins, chop into smaller pieces.
  • Instead ofhoney,you can use pure maple syrup, agave, or brown rice syrup.
  • Feel free to use your favoritepeanut butter,creamy or crunchy, natural or processed, or another nut butter you love like almond butter or cashew butter.
  • 椰子油holds these bars together, so I don’t recommend leaving it out. If needed, you can replace with butter because you need a fat that’s solid at room temperature.
  • You can use regular sizechocolate chips,but the mini size make these bars easier to cut. Feel free to skip the chocolate chips and replace with sunflower seeds, dried fruit, or chopped nuts.


Overview: How to Make Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars

  1. Pulse some of the ingredients in a food processor. The food processor (or a blender!) is key in this preparation. Pulsing about 10x gently breaks down the nuts and oats, which guarantees the bars will stay intact.
  2. Pour the pulsed mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the dry ingredients. (Except for the chocolate chips– we’ll stir those in last!)
  3. 熔体在炉子上或微波炉的花生酱,蜂蜜和椰子油。倒在干燥的成分。
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Press tightly into a lined 8-inch or 9-inch baking pan.
  6. 冷藏。该酒吧走约1小时来设置在冰箱里。
  7. 切成正方形或长方形。

所有不同的纹理 - 干果,脆脆的咸坚果,燕麦耐嚼,粘到了,屋顶的你的嘴花生酱和巧克力的点 - 工作这么好起来!

Are These Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars Healthy?

I say this a lot with the lightened-up recipes I publish, but “healthy” is a relative term. In my eyes, these are perfectly healthy granola bars. They’re made with whole foods like almonds and fiber-filled oats, plus there’s no white flour or refined sugar. However, they may be too sugary for someone who needs to watch their sugar intake and they’re obviously not ideal for anyone allergic to nuts.

When it comes to labeling recipes as healthy, use the best judgement for YOU.

  • I’m unsure of the nutritional information for these, but feel free to calculate it yourself using an online calculator and the exact products/brands you use.

  • 1/3cup60克)minichocolate chips


  1. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the bars out (makes cutting easier!). Set aside.
  2. Pulse the almonds, cashews, and 1/2 cup (40g) oats in a food processor about 10x or until lightly chopped. (Without pulsing these ingredients, the bars will fall apart.)
  3. 倒入混合脉冲放入一个大碗里。炒锅内留燕麦,地面亚麻,越橘,葡萄干均匀。搁置。
  4. In a medium pan over medium heat or in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil together. Stir to combine, then pour over the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips, then stir to combine everything.
  5. 转移混合物至准备锅。用平铲的背面,按下混合物紧密,用力向下放入油锅。请确保它的结构紧凑,这有助于保证条将保持其形状。
  6. Place bars into the refrigerator to set up for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
  7. Cut into rectangle or square bars. Cover and store the bars for up to 1 week at room temperature or for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.


  1. 冻结说明:图层羊皮纸片之间的切杆在冰箱中友好袋或容器。冻结长达3个月。解冻在冰箱或室温。
  2. 成份的问题:我已经与所有类成分替换使这些酒吧无数次。看到博客文章上述所有成功的成分替换。
  3. Nuts:Instead of almonds and cashews, feel free to replace with your favorite nuts. I like to use salted nuts for a sweet/salty bar, but feel free to use unsalted. You can use raw or roasted, whichever flavor you prefer. I usually use roasted.
  4. Ground Flax:如果你没有ground flax, replace with the same amount of whole oats. No need to pulse these with the ingredients in step 2. (Use in step 3.)
  5. Dried Fruit:Feel free to use any dried fruit you enjoy. If the dried fruit you’re using isn’t small like dried cranberries and raisins, chop into smaller pieces.
  6. Peanut Butter:Feel free to use your favorite peanut butter, creamy or crunchy, natural or processed, or another nut butter you love.
  7. Chocolate Chips:You can use regular size chocolate chips, but the mini size make these bars easier to cut. Feel free to skip the chocolate chips and replace with sunflower seeds, dried fruit, or chopped nuts.

  1. I sent some of these bars to my sister to snack on while she is working at the hospital, and she said they tasted like heaven! I will definitely be making these again! Thank you so much for your fabulous recipes, Sally! They never fail to impress.

  2. Hey sally, these look really good but I was wondering if u could make them vegan or if they are already vegan? I checked the vegan section of your site and I didn’t see them so I assumed they weren’t. Thanks!!

    1. Hi Elisabeth, If you use maple syrup or brown rice syrup in place of the honey, these bars are vegan

  3. 我没有削减我的呢,让他们设定的时间长一点。但是......你应该让他们的花生酱混合物,清凉搅拌过吗?我没有,当我加入他们我的迷你巧克力片立即融化。我敢肯定,他们会顿饭真够无论哪种方式,但他们不喜欢看你的照片......他们对巧克力棕色所致。而且我觉得我可以用常规的巧克力片,因为它们融化呢?很想知道是否要冷却熔化的成分,以供将来参考。谢谢!

    1. Hi Jill! I usually don’t, but you certainly can let the mixture cool down next time. I usually warm the mixture on the stove. It’s not usually piping hot when I pour it over the dry ingredients.

      1. Thanks, Sally. I did mine on the stove as well. Will experiment a little more next time. They are tasty anyway!

    2. I had the same thing happen! They were still delicious, but a bit sweeter than I’d hoped for and I couldn’t really taste the salt from the salted nuts. This time around I used crunchy peanut butter and I let the mixture cool before adding in the chocolate chips to keep them from melting. Fingers crossed, but I know they’ll be delicious regardless!

      1. Klaire, I made them again yesterday and did the melting step first. I also melted on very low heat. The bars came out perfectly with intact chocolate chips! We enjoyed the first batch too, it was just different.

      2. Jill, that sounds like a really good idea for my next batch, because I know I’ll be making these again and again! Thanks!

  4. 我们做这些吃的是下午的点心,同时我们正在建设我们的小木屋。他们对我们很好的营养平衡,并保持我们下去,直到我们打破吃饭。我们爱他们。

  5. I’ve made these twice now and they are just to-die-for! Sooo easy, and I had all of these ingredients in my pantry! Swapped pecans for the cashews. These are honestly like a dessert- 10/10!

  6. I consider myself a rather experienced baker, but have never made granola bars before. I like the ease of swapping the nuts and raisins for whatever you have on hand or prefer to eat. These were absolutely delicious AND easy to make. Thank you so much for sharing.
