Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Bars (healthified)

oatmeal bars   These bars are super quick and easy to make, they taste similar to no bake cookies. I like this version better because it contains no butter or white sugar. Although I’m sure these have a good amount of calories it’s nice to know that you and whoever you feed is eating all natural unrefined ingredients. I took these to a playgroup this morning on a whim and everybody loved them. It seriously is so easy and quick to make that it takes about 3 minutes to put everything together and then about 20 minutes or so to harden. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did :)!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup  unsweetened shredded coconut (or sweetened)
  • 1 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (or semi-sweet)

Directions:

  • Melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil over medium-low heat in a saucepan on the stove. It happens pretty fast so keep your eye on it.
  • Remove from heat once it’s melted together and add in the oats, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and vanilla.  Stir together until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Pour into a 8×8 pan or if you want thinner bars you can use a 9×13 and place in freezer.
  • When mixture is hardened cut into bars and eat. Store in the fridge or freezer.
