Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars – No Bake!

Sometimes my cupboard does a convincing impression of Mother Hubbard’s.

And I just don’t feel like going to the store.

But the little people still insist on food.

In comes these protein, fiber filled bars! They come together in 20 minutes, no baking needed and are great for breakfast, snacks, or to pack in lunches!

Base

1 c Peanut Butter, crunchy or creamy

1/3 Honey

3 1/2 c Oats, quick or Old Fashioned

1/2 cup flax seed (can replace with 1/2 cup more oats if you don’t have them!)

Put PB & Honey in Microwave safe bowl, heat in increments of 20 seconds until soft and easy to mix. Add Oats and flax, mixing until coated. Press into a 9-inch square pan.

Icing

1/2 c Cocoa Powder

1c Powdered Sugar

3 Tbsp Milk (Alternately, 1 Tbsp and 2 Tbsp Coconut Coffee Syrup)

Coconut Flakes to sprinkle (optional)

Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl.  Add extra milk in teaspoon increments to reach desired consistency. Pour over base and use rubber scraper to spread evenly. Sprinkle coconut flakes over the top as desired.

Cover and cool in fridge until hardened. Cut into bars and enjoy!

**I store the extra in the fridge to munch while the kiddos aren’t looking 😉
