Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey

FOR THE FILLING

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 6 tablespoons oat flour *See Notes

FOR THE TOPPING

  • 2 ounces cream cheese , softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey (Add more honey if you want the topping to be sweeter)

Instructions

TO MAKE THE CRUST

  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, peanut butter and honey. Press the mixture into the bottom of a small 5-inch or similar sized dish. Set aside.

TO MAKE THE FILLING

  • In a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, honey and oat flour. Spoon over the crust. Set aside.

TO MAKE THE TOPPING

  • Blend together the cream cheese and honey with either a fork or a hand mixer. Spread over the peanut butter filling.
  • Refrigerate to chill.

Notes

To make oat flour, place oats in a food processor or a blender and pulse or blend to ground to a powdery, flour-like consistency. 
1 cup of rolled oats will make about a cup of oat flour. Transfer remaining oat flour to a zip-topped bag or airtight container to use later.
