If you use this brand, I recommend Splenda Naturals to stick with a natural sweetener. But, any granulated sweetener works. The amount may vary depending on which one you use.
Just made these using a natural peanut butter. The oil kind of separates during baking making it almost like they are being deep fried!

All of the carbs in erythritol are sugar alcohols, so they have a net count of 0.
This recipe also makes 27 cookies so that one cup of erythritol is divided by 27 servings. I hope that helps! The title of the recipe says there are 4 ingredients to make these cookies. I count 6 ingredients in these sugar-free low carb peanut butter cookies. Is this the same recipe? The vanilla is optional. I made these using all natural peanut butter and quick oats. I heated the PB and honey in the microwave. It looked curdled when I took it out. Had to use my hands,and it was still so stiff and unworkable,I added more honey,then melted coconut oil to add to it.
They were really terrible! Could it have been that the honey had been around a while and had previously been reheated because it had crystalized? I still think this needed something more…. Sorry about the grammar…. Ok, so this recipe is bogus. First of all, it says it makes 20 squares. You could only get rectangles, yet all the pictures are of square bars. I had to use equal parts oats and peanut butter to get a good consistency. I just bought so many extra oats for no reason.
Hi there… I posted this recipe, have made it so many times and the pictures you see are what I made in my own kitchen of these bars using this very recipe.
Sorry you had trouble, but it sounds like you worked it out in the end. It automatically put 5 stars but this recipe is a 1 star. I made these and they turned out bad!!! Turns out 3 cups of oats to 1 cup of peanut butter was not a good ratio. The mixture was dry! Must be a typo. These look amazing and I will definitely try them, do you have the calorie information on a serving size you suggest?
I made these for girl scouts a loonnnggg time ago. I was just wondering if you really need honey. Would it be possible to do it without it? I made it exactly as the instructions indicate, and they came out just fine! I was prepared to put in less oats, but 3 c. I did press the mixture into the pan, too. Like rice crispy treats, this keeps them moist and chewy. I can taste the honey as well as the peanut butter…so good and easy!
I love how the honey and peanut butter stand out while the oats give it texture! I added a little agave, coconut oil and flavored oats to these it was amazing thank you!!! I just made the bars , my husband loves them. I used half smooth and half chunky organic peanut butter …very easy and quick bars with no preservatives …keep them frozen when you need them just get them out of the freezer. I used smooth and chunky organic peanut butter …so good.????
I absolutely LOVE these! They are so much better than store bought granola bars! I also tried toasting the oatmeal prior to making them. That was awesome too! Tried this and loved it! I decided to double the recipe because I have 4 kids who all need lunch snacks. Melted the PB and honey and low and behold I only had 3 cups of quick oats. I added 4 baggies of cinnamon and spice Quaker packets and it turned out great!
They had a great flavor and texture. Nowadays, I now add a couple tablespoons of various seeds to up the nutrition. Just rolled up into a ball in the pot on the stove. I used maple syrup instead of honey, and it worked out just fine: Made these and was kind of disappointed.
They did taste good though. The quick oats are cut smaller to cook faster and work in this recipe because they will pack more densely. I added in 2 tablespoons of flax meal and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to mine, for extra health. Super simple and easy, and they remind me of those super chewy and dense Clif Bars, but much cheaper and fewer ingredients!
I intend on eating these for breakfast, so I made 6 huge meal-sized bars. Perfect for a busy morning! What sort of life do you have? I added some raisins and cinnamon to add more sweetness!! But it would be just as amazing without those ingrediants! This information will not be used for any purpose other than enabling you to post a comment.

My website has always been dedicated to the very best sweet treats with an occasional family friendly meal sprinkled in and my book is everything you have grown to love about my site and more. Easy, 3 ingredients, and perfect! They get hard because they are using corn syrup as a filler.
Does the honey taste get stronger, the older it is? I buy store bought, and my honey crystalizes. Put container in microwave and heat about 30 seconds, this should soften the honey. Would that not kill the natural enzymes and all the other goodness of raw honey?
So simple and yet looks so yum! Such a great treat and only few ingredients! These bars are amazing! I have these three ingredients in the pantry — they look fabulous! Easy and simple, indeed! I am all over this one! I laughed so hard when I saw your honey container…I can totally relate! I keep mine in a wide mouth mason jar.
Umm these sound divine! I think I might need to make a tray at nap time! It definitely could have made a difference. I have never made it with natural peanut butter! Lara, do you have the nutritional information on your modifications? This recipe is very tasty. I also used old fashioned oats. Would maple syrup work in place of honey?
Ladies, can someone, please, share this recipe meashured in grams? I love high fiber and easy. Thank you for this. I mixed in half a block of cream cheese into the recipe. They are so good! Just got done making these. They were sooo good. Has anyone made these with natural fresh ground peanut butter? I just tried and Disaster! Could I use quick oats?? Subs for the honey other than maple syrup??? Want to try but what can I replace peanut butter with as my son has nut allergies?
You could use Sunbutter, that would work! Turned out just like the pictures. My child loved them! Are we suppose to cook the oats first? These are so delicious and convenient! Does anyone know how many calories are in them? I am going to make this in about 1hour for My Grandson and son.
I used regular like Jif. I am sure it would work fine with any type of Nut Butter! Put in fridge to set up I usually go about 3 hours before cutting into squares. Wishing a warm and safe summer to all. Thank you thank you! Thank you for this simple recipe! I used crunchy peanut butter and they are delicous!!
Oh yes definitely try crunchy! I put in some chia seeds! Do you think maple syrup would work instead of honey? Anyway you can do this recipe without honey? I bet this would be yummy with almond butter also. Do you think using all natural peanut butter would be okay? Have you tried it with crunchy pb? No, but that would be great! Thanks for this recipe. I add a cup of unsweetened coconut to them: Can you make these with steel cut oats?
Does anyone know the calorie count or sugar per bar we are trying to find healthy snack. Love how adaptable they are! I make them frequently now. Great for a quick breakfast or snack! How long will these last? Like the shelf life I guess haha.
Add some mini chocolate chips! Instead of honey, can I use pure Maple syrup?
