A delicious and lightly sweet portable snack option. Like digging out of the peanut butter jar, but with a little more staying power.
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1. Line a glass baking dish or storage container with enough parchment paper to overlap the sides. (This makes the bars easy to remove and cut.)
2. In a glass bowl, combine the peanut butter and honey until smooth. If you’re using cold peanut butter, heat these in a double-boiler or in the microwave for about 30 seconds to whisk until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and coconut oil.
3. In another bowl, whisk the oats, coconut, chocolate chips, cinnamon and salt until combined. Pour in the honey and peanut butter mixture, and stir until full mixed.
4. Press the mixture into your baking dish and store covered in the fridge for about one hour until set. Remove the parchment paper to cut into bars or squares and store in the fridge.
