  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking sheet. 
  • In a small saucepan, warm up the peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract over low-medium heat until the peanut butter melts (1-2 minutes). 
  • In a large bowl, add the oats, cinnamon, and salt and stir to combine. Add the peanut butter mixture and stir to coat all the oats.
  • Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and evenly spread it out into a thin layer with a spatula. Bake for 18 minutes. 
  • Let it cool untouched for 30 minutes so it can harden. Then use a spatula to break it up into pieces.
