Healthy Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Coconut-Oat Bars~No Bake!

@HealthfulMama_No Bake Healthy Chocolate Coconut Bars

When I get a chocolate craving, I NEED TO FEED IT. I become like a chocolate fiend, searching cupboards, licking wrappers, snorting cocoa powder to get my fix. That may be a bit of hyperbole. The goodness and ease of this recipe is no exaggeration, though. You can whip up some yummy chocolate bars without having chocolate on-hand. And they’ll be ready before your episode of Breaking Bad is finished.

    Wow – those look delicious – and super easy! I think I’ll make some as an after school snack for my boys!

      Yes, super-easy was the key. I literally just experimented with what was in the cupboards and they came out great! This is a small batch, though. You may want to try doubling it.

    Yuuuummyy! Just made a double batch it is so delicious! I used coconut syrup instead of honey which has a deeper more golden syrup taste not as sweet as honey so added an extra tablespoon. This is going to be a staple in my house hold thank you so much!!
