A healthier take on oatmeal bars, this recipe includes NO butter and NO refined sugar. As a bonus, they’re easy to freeze: simply let thaw for 10 minutes or so before serving.
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp raw honey, or maple syrup
  • 10 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with wax paper, leaving an inch or so hanging over the edges.
  2. In a food processor, add ¾ of the peanut butter, coconut oil, honey, dates, and vanilla, pulsing until smooth. Add in the oats and pulse until well-combined. The mixture will be crumbly, but it should hold it’s shape when pressed into a ball.
  3. Press ¾ of the oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  4. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips and remaining peanut butter, stirring until smooth. Pour the chocolate onto the crust layer and spread evenly with a rubber spatula or spoon.
  5. Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate, gently pressing it in.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Once firm, remove from the pan by lifting the wax paper by the edges. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
