No Bake Pioneer Bars

Here is another favorite recipe from my Mom. After you read the ingredients you will see where it got it’s name. These are good and hearty and maybe somewhat healthy.


  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoon butter

Mix the peanut butter, nuts, powdered sugar, rolled oats, vanilla, and 4 Tablespoon melted butter. Press into a 9×13 inch pan and chill. Melt the chocolate chips and the 2 Tablespoon butter over a double boiler (or use microwave). Spread on top of first layer. Chill and cut into squares.

    The pioneer bar recipe doesn’t say when to add the vanilla & rolled oats? What do you do with that?

    Sorry about that error. You add the oats and vanilla with the peanut butter, nuts, powdered sugar and butter. I have corrected the recipe. Thanks!
