Ingredients

  • Butter or nonstick cooking spray, for greasing
  • 1 Cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • ½ Cup coconut oil, such as Vita Coco
  • ½ Cup honey
  • 2 Cups rolled oats
  • 1¼ Cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ Cup chopped salted almonds
  • Cocoa nibs, for topping

Directions

Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (or line with parchment paper).

In a medium saucepan, heat the peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey over medium-low heat until smooth and well-combined. Then remove from the heat.

Stir rolled oats, chocolate chips, coconut, and almonds, mixing well until the chocolate chips are completely melted.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Before chilling, sprinkle cocoa nibs on top for texture.

Refrigerate until the mixture is firm, the cut into squares. Store the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
