No Bake Healthy Granola Bars

IMG_0410

Peanut butter, honey, oats, cranberries, and chocolate? This can only be amazing!!! And trust me, it is. And yes it’s super easy to make without messing up.

Since this is no bake and it has low temperature melting ingredients like honey and peanut butter, you will have to keep refrigerated until ready to eat. You don’t want all the preservatives that comes with prepacked bars. I think the sesame seeds really add the secret crunch that seals the deal. It’s sweet, peanut buttery, crunchy and chocolaty all at once. You won’t be disappointed.

Ingredients:

2 tbs of coconut oil

1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1/3 cup natural honey. Local is possible.

1 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup dried canberries

1/4 cup crushed peanuts unsalted

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:Melt over medium heat the coconut oil, peanut butter and honey just til it’s warmed through.

Let cool for about 5 mins and combine the rest of ingredients. We just don’t want the chocolate to melt too much because the batter is a little warm.

Press to a 8×8 square inch pan and let cool for at least 2 hours. Cut into 8 bars. Keep in fridge until ready to eat. Soooooo good and a very satisfying snack or post workout snack.
