These one-bowl, no-bake energy squares ensure a quick way to refuel during long meetings, tough workouts or that mid-afternoon energy slump. Feel free to swap the blueberries for your favorite dried fruit and the pistachios for your favorite nut—but keep the maple syrup as is; we found using less than ½ cup resulted in crumbly bars.

  • 1 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups rolled oats, toasted (see Tip)
  • ½ cup dried blueberries
  • ½ cup chopped pistachios
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Line an 8-inch-square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving extra hanging over two sides. Lightly coat the parchment with cooking spray.
  2. Mix peanut butter and maple syrup in a large bowl. Stir in oats, blueberries, pistachios and salt. Spread the mixture firmly and evenly into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Cut into 16 squares.
  • To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days or refrigerate for up to 1 week.
  • Equipment: Parchment paper
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
