  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup mini M&M’s
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 5 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 9x9 baking dishes with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking oil.
  2. Place oats and nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly toasted.
  3. While the oats and nuts are toasting, add to a microwave safe bowl peanut butter, honey, unsalted butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. Microwave in intervals of 30 seconds, mixing between each until fully combined.
  4. Place nuts and oats in a large bowl and pour microwaved mixture over. Stir until fully combined.
  5. Add in chocolate chips and M&M’s and stir until evenly distributed.
  6. Distribute the oat mixture into the two prepared pans and press down using parchment paper. Ensure the oat mixture is pressed firmly, so that the bars stick together.
  7. Cook the bars for 7 minutes in the preheated oven and allow to cool completely prior to cutting into desired shapes and sizes.
