Coconut Oat Granola Bars

/ 1 comment
A co-worker of mine brought these granola bars into work right after New Years Eve. They were so good that when he offered for people to take the leftover's home, I quickly packed a few bars into a plastic container. 

Eating healthy...fail.

Anyway...I felt like it was time to replicate these amazing coconut oat granola bars. Nooo...these granola bars below are not from the first week in January! I ate those up... like when no one could see me. 







Coconut Oat Granola Bars: 10-12 bars

Ingredients:

Dry
  • 2 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup nuts or seeds (I just used pecans and walnuts)
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp of peanut butter
Wet
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, soft
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
Instructions:
  • In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients. In a different bowl, combine wet ingredients. Once dry and wet ingredient are mixed in their separate bowls...pour wet ingredients into dry and completely combine ingredients.
  • In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and stir in peanut butter.
  • Line a 8x8-inch dish with wax paper. Press half of the granola bar dough into bottom of the dish. Spread the chocolate peanut butter mix evenly over the granola bar layer. Top with another layer of the granola bar dough. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 1/2 hours. Cut into 10-12 granola bars. You can store them in the freezer for longer... but you won't want to.
