No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
Last week, Heartworks Kids was having a bake sale.
I, however, was not in the mood to do any baking!
So I decided to check out some no-bake recipes on Pinterest.
The one I decided to try was SO easy and quite possibly the yummiest thing I have ever made! Seriously!
(In fact, we liked it so much, we did not even end up taking it to the bake sale. Shhhhhh!!)
No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars!
1 cup almond butter (I prefer Trader Joes or Tree of Life)
2/3 cup local honey
1/2 cup coconut butter (You could sub coconut oil, but the butter is oh so yummy!!)
2 cups toasted oats
1 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
Place the two cups of oats on a cookie sheet and toast in oven for a few minutes. Just be sure they don’t burn.
In a medium size saucepan, melt almond butter, honey and coconut butter.
Remove from heat and add oats, chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Stir until combined and chocolate chips are melted.
Spread into a parchment lined 9×13 pan. Refrigerate until hardened, preferably overnight. Store in refrigerator.
They may not look like much, but watch out they are irresistible. Kinda like a healthy, not too sweet chocolate fudge bar?
You could easily alter the recipe by using a different kind of dried fruit, adding nuts, etc.
Here is a photo of all the ingredients. Super simple!!
