Peanut Butter, Blueberry & Oat Energy Squares
1 h 10 m
“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
1Line an 8-inch-square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving extra hanging over two sides. Lightly coat the parchment with cooking spray.
2Mix 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.
