I used to buy granola bars. I used to be so addicted to them. But since I learned how to make them at home, I never buy them again. Okay, just sometimes.
This was the first time I made granola bars with chocolate. And THESE turned out amazing. Imagine a soft, chewy, sweet bar packed with juicy raisins, chocolate and an amazing coconut aroma. It was so hard to resist eating the whole batch at once.. But I was strong enough to save some for the next day. And it's so great to know that what you eat is actually healthy. Oh come on, stop reading and give these a try.
Chocolate Granola Bars (no-bake)
2 cups quick cooking oats
50ml unrefined coconut oil
5-6 tbsp honey
2-3 tbsp cocoa powder (use high-quality!)
20-25g dark chocolate, chopped
100g golden raisins, chopped
1) In a small saucepan, melt together coconut oil and honey. Mix in cocoa powder and stir just until there are no lumps and the mixure is smooth. Remove from heat.
2) In a medium bowl, mix together oats, chocolate and raisins. Stir in the coconut oil/honey mixture and stir until combined. Press into 10x22cm loaf pan and place in the fridge. Refrigerate at least 3 hours and cut into squares. Store in refrigerator (if it isn't very hot you may store them at room temperature)
