Peace, love, peanut butter and chocolate.
That’s pretty much it.. the worldly cure to many problems.
I have been wanting to work on ratios for honey, so I felt like this was a great opportunity to figure out what works and what doesn’t. I don’t personally feel the need to use honey instead of sugar in baked goods because, well, it just doesn’t make a difference to me if the “sugar substitute” will raise my blood sugar just as much as the sugar itself.
But I love you.
And maybe you are someone who prefers to use honey over sugar.
So here you go.. peanut butter honey oat bars with dark chocolate. There’s no “refined” sugar in these, and they are entirely delicious.
And to be honest, I had a lot of fun figuring it out.
Go have some fun yourself!
Peanut Butter Honey Oat Bars
Here's What You Need
- 1 c whole rolled oats
- 1 c coconut flakes
- 1/4 c almond flour
- 3/4 c peanut butter
- 1/4 c honey
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 c dark chocolate (a baking chocolate or bark will work best, as it will hold solid)
- 1/4 c peanut butter
Here's What You Do
Combine oats, coconut, and almond flour. In a separate bowl, combine peanut butter and honey, then microwave until just melted and combined. Stir in vanilla and salt.
Mix peanut butter with oat mixture.
Spread mixture in the bottom of a square casserole dish.
Melt chocolate and peanut butter, stirring as you go.
Spread peanut butter chocolate mixture on top of oats.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until well set. Cut and serve!
- You can use any chocolate you like, but I prefer very dark chocolate. You can also use whatever peanut butter you like, but I prefer an all natural chunky peanut butter.
