Ingredients
  • 2¼ C quick oats
  • ¼ C wheat or oat bran
  • ¼ C ground flaxseed
  • ¼ C unsweetened dark chocolate baking cocoa
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ C honey
  • ⅓ C no-stir natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ - ½ C dark chocolate chips, depending on how sweet you want the bars
Instructions
  1. Line an 8x8 inch baking dish with parchment paper. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together quick oats, wheat/oat bran, flaxseed, baking cocoa, and salt.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat together honey, peanut butter, coconut oil, and vanilla extract until peanut butter and coconut oil are melted. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Stir constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour over oat mixture and stir until coated. Stir in dark chocolate chips. Some of them may melt, and that's okay!
