Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Chewy Bars

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of gluten free rolled oats (I used Bob Red Mill’s)
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/2 cup of crushed walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. of peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. of coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Start by combining the rolled oats with honey, walnuts, and vanilla.
  2. Melt the peanut butter and coconut oil over low heat until melted.
  3. Add the coconut oil mixture to the bowl with the oats.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chip.
  5. On a parchment lined freezer safe baking sheet, scoop all of the mixture onto the pan and flatten. (You want these to be at least 1 inch thick so they do not fall apart.)
  6. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes, and then cut into 10 large granola bars.
  7. Store in the freezer so that the bars will hold their shape.
