Reese's are one of my all time favorite candy bars. This recipe is as close to one as I've gotten without actually making peanut butter cups or just eating a whole bag of miniatures. 

Simple, no bake, and even with the added bonus of whole grain oatmeal packed with fiber.

Makes 1 8x8 pan, 16 squares

Ingredients

Base

1 cup unsalted, natural peanut butter

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp honey

1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cup old fashioned (rolled) oats 

Topping

1/2 cup vegan semi sweet chocolate chips (you can use regular too of course)

1/4 cup caramel chips (these might be hard to find so you can also sub 1/4 cup peanut butter)

Directions

  1. Line 8x8 baking pan with parchment or wax paper.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, measure out peanut butter and honey. Microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring between, until fragrant and slightly bubbly. 
  3. Stir oatmeal into peanut butter and honey mixture until all combined.
  4. Press peanut butter and oat mixture into pan using a piece of wax paper.
  5. Using the double boiler method, melt chips (or pb and chips) until smooth.
  6. Pour topping over oat mixture in pan and evenly distribute.
  7. Place into fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.
  8. Cut into 16 squares, remove from pan, and devour.
