Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars

If chocolate and peanut butter fudge were to have a threesome with a sexy, chewy granola bar, these would be their offspring.  Might as well start July off with a little menage a trois - foodie style.  {I'll be doing some serious spam control after this post I'm sure!} But seriously, this is a delicious, chocolate-y no bake bar, made with whole oats, honey, coconut oil, and coconut.  They were addictive. And easy...my 12 year old made them!

Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup unrefined organic coconut oil
2 cups old-fashioned oats (not quick)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chocolate chips (we used a combo of semi-sweet and dark)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Melt the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Once melted, remove from heat and add oats, shredded coconut, chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir until chocolate is melted and ingredients are combined. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan (or use foil for easier removal) and cool in the fridge to set. Once set, cut into bars. (Bars need to be stored in the fridge due to the coconut oil. It has a low melting point.)
