Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter No-Bake Candy Bars :)

Long name for these bars, but they are so incredibly easy to put together, your kids can make them! In our case, my 9-year-old daughter was having a playdate with a friend and asked if they could bake something together. There wasn't enough time for them to bake, but I found this recipe through Pinterest and thought it may do the trick- it was super simple and as sweets go, quite healthy. The added bonus was: the bars turned out super yummy too! :) Everybody super happy!

1 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips (dark, milk, white chocolate- whatever you prefer)
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup roughly chopped peanuts (optional) 


Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper.

In a medium size saucepan, over medium heat, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil, while stirring occasionally.

Once you have a hot, homogenous mixture, remove from heat and add oats, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and peanuts. Stir until combined and chocolate chips are melted.

Spread evenly into the prepared 9x13 pan. Refrigerate until hardened, about an hour. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator. Enjoy!
