Ingredients

  • 1 cup Peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 2 1/2 cups Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup Shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup Mini chocolate chips Or any other add-ins
  • 1/4 cup Melted chocolate For drizzling (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, add peanut butter and honey. Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments until peanut butter has fully melted. Stir everything together until smooth.

  2. Add oats and coconut and mix until thoroughly combined. 

  3. Stir in chocolate chips (I used a combination of mini chocolate chips and mini peanut butter chips, which I got from Canada). 

  4. Dump this mixture into a square pan (Dimensions: 8x8), lined with wax paper. 

  5. Use your hands or the flat base of a measuring cup to flatten down this oat mixture tightly. 

  6. Cover with saran wrap or foil paper and refrigerate overnight OR until mixture is firm.

  7. Use a sharp knife to cut bars. 

  8. This step is optional: Drizzle each bar with melted chocolate.

  9. Allow the chocolate to set and harden and enjoy!
