Homemade Granola Bars

To be more exact, these are homemade, no white sugar, no bake, no bad-stuff granola bars. These came together extremely quickly and are not only good for you, they are filling, and taste like a dessert. 

I had most of these ingredients in my pantry, and was honestly looking for a way to use up my extra oats. I made these in a square pan to achieve thicker bars, but if made in a 9x13 pan, these would be a bit thinner and yield more bars. 

Hope you enjoy! Recipe is below the photos.

Ingredients:
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/4 cup mini-chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Over low heat, combine peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil. Stir together until smooth. Immediately remove from heat. 

2. Pour warm mixture over oats and coconut, stir to combine. 

3. Pour the mixture evenly into a wax-paper lined glass pan. Then, press mini-chocolate chips into the top of the bars. 

4. Cover the pan and allow bars to freeze overnight, or 4-5 hours. Once hardened, remove the bars and cut into desired size. Wrap individually, and store in the refrigerator until you're ready to enjoy.
