Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Candy Bars

Posted on: May 11, 2013

These are a healthy snack and to die for!! It’s sort of  like a chocolate oatmeal no bake cookie, but extra… creamy and special.  It almost reminds me of fudge, but with the added texture of the oats and occasional chewy sweetness of the dried fruit!
 
Ingredients:
 
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (no substitutes, this is what gives its creamy texture and flavor)
  • 2 cups g.f. oats (not instant)
  • 1 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips (dairy-free if needed)
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries

Directions:

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil.
  2. Remove from heat and add oats, chocolate chips and dried cranberries.
  3. Stir until combined and chocolate chips are melted.
  4. Spread into a 9×13 pan. Refrigerate until hardened, about an hour. Store in refrigerator.
  5. cut into squares and enjoy!
