Chocolate Oatmeal Bars - NO BAKE

I am really into things that make my life easier. Who isn't though, right? We all want quick, easy and DELICIOUS.

Also healthier. That's a big one for me these days. When I'm craving something sweet, I try to grab something I can feel good about putting in my body. These bars fit the bill.

Super fast. Super easy. Not terrible for you. I like that.

These have great flavor that will leave you satisfied without the guilt.


Stir together 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup + 3 TBSP *maple syrup
1/4 cup + 3 TBSP natural peanut butter

Whisk in 1/2 tsp vanilla & 1/4 tsp salt
Stir in 2 cups oats
1/4 cup cocoa powder

Put parchment paper into an 8x8 pan
Press mixture down into pan
Freeze until firm enough to cut.
Keep in refrigerator.

*I used sugar free syrup. It is 15 calories per half cup versus the 210 calories in regular. Although there is nothing wrong with 100% pure maple syrup, I just wanted to save on some calories.
