Satisfy your sweet tooth! Best Ever Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Bars

I have a crazy sweet tooth and I’m not afraid to admit it.

I won’t sit with my feet up and eat a box of bon bons, but a little treat in the afternoon when our daughter’s at school and the little dude is down for his nap, gives Mommy that wee bit of energy to get me through until dinner.

I’ve been finding recipes that have little or no sugar added and even ones that don’t have the standard ingredients like butter and flour.

I found this super amazing one that you’d probably agree is pretty AMAZEBALLZ!

Ingredients:

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil (you could also substitute butter)
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts, raisins, or dried cranberries
1-1/4 cups dark chocolate chips (or regular semi-sweet chocolate chips, if you prefer)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil over medium-low heat in a saucepan on the stove. {Watch this closely. You don’t want it to burn!}

Remove from heat once it’s melted together and add in the oats, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, nuts/raisins, and vanilla. Stir together until the chocolate is completely melted.

Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and cool in the fridge. If you’d like thicker bars, you can pour the mixture into a smaller pan.

When the mixture is hardened, cut into bars and eat. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Ingredients

One giant bar

I’ve made these now a few times and even the kiddies love them. Let me know what you think 😃

  1. These are awesome! And I’m not a fan of chocolate and PB usually. A slice of this after our dinner hit the spot for my sweets craving. Thanks!
