No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars Recipe
















Another New Year is here, and with it comes a whole new list of resolutions. Whether it's losing weight, living healthier, or helping others, we all have pretty ambitious goals we want to achieve throughout the year. But for most of us, one week into the new year is really where those resolutions get put to the test.

Today's blog post may be able to help get past that one week bump. If you're striving to live a healthier life, but have a super strong sweet tooth, like me, then this is the recipe for you. Made with our extremely healthy and organic coconut flour and super tasty 6 Grain Cereal mix, this treat will satisfy that sweet tooth without adding all that guilt. And there's no baking involved! You know you can't beat that! Get those taste buds ready, it's time for some No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars!

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup Honeyville Powdered Peanut Butter + 4 Tbsp Water
2/3 cup Agave Nectar
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil
2 cups Honeyville 6 Grain Rolled Cereal Mix
1 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Raspberries

Directions:
First, re-hydrate your peanut butter.


In a large mixing bowl, combine powdered peanut butter and water and mix until it is completely combined.


In a large saucepan, add peanut butter, coconut oil, and agave.


Heat at a low heat until ingredients are completely melted, then remove from heat.


Add 6 grain mix and chocolate chips, then mix until chocolate chips are completely melted.


Add raspberries, and stir until ingredients are completely combined.


Line a brownie pan with parchment paper.


Pour ingredients into pan and place in refrigerator for 1 hour to set up.


Once set, remove from refrigerator, lift bars out of pan with parchment paper, and cut into 9 bars.

Remove and serve.


This is the no-bake, easy-to-make treat that satisfies your sweet tooth and your waist line at the same time! The combination of the chocolate and coconut oil give it a super delicious taste you can't find anywhere else. The 6 grain cereal mix is the perfect rolled grain mix to keep this bar together, and the freeze dried raspberries give the whole thing a sweetness you can't find anywhere else.


Who knew keeping your new year's resolution would taste so good!

Is it possible to switch out quick cooking oats for the grain cereal and honey for the agave nectar?

I am looking for more of a gluten free bar.
Thank you
