Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars (No-Bake, Healthy)







Here's another recipe for those healthy, nutrient-packed oat bars which are irreplaceable to me. I always need to have some oat bars in my fridge for breakfast or late night snacking, but I usually end up eating these all day long. 
These are very easy and quick to whip up, you will only have to wait until they firm up in the fridge. These become very soft at room temperature because coconut oil starts melting so you will have to keep them in the fridge. 
These have a mild chocolate flavor - they taste more like milk chocolate bars (and I loved it), but if you prefer dark chocolate flavor, feel free to increase the chocolate to 200 grams. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars (No-Bake, Healthy)

180g (2 cups) quick-cooking oats
75g (1 cup) unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
250g (1 cup) salted peanut butter
100g dark (50%) chocolate
100g (1/2 cup) unrefined coconut oil
170g (1/2 cup) honey

1) Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or prepare a silicone loaf pan. 

2) In a large bowl, mix together oats, coconut flakes, and flax seed meal.

3) In a small saucepan, combine together coconut oil, honey and peanut butter. Cook just until melted. Remove from heat. Add chopped chocolate, cover and let sit for 2 minutes until the chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth.

4) Add the wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir to combine. Place in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours or until firm. Store in the fridge.
