If you’ve been following my blog, you may have noticed I love peanut butter, chocolate and oats together. Alright, who am I’m kidding, I’m borderline obsessed. I have made these bars so many times I can make them in my sleep.
Sometimes I use a 8 x 8-inch pan, sometimes it’s a 9 x 9 and this time it was a 9 x 13 pan. It doesn’t matter to me, just depends on what I have available or if I’m in the mood for a thicker bar or if it feel like I want them to last longer (in that case, it’s a 9 x 13-inch pan).
Do not substitute or leave out the coconut oil! It makes these bars so creamy. I’m so addicted to these. It’s about time to make another pan!
In a medium saucepan over medium, combine the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil. Stir until melted. Remove from heat and add oats, chocolate chips and raisins. Combine everything together until the chocolate is completely melted. Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch pan and store in the fridge for about 2 hours until firm. Cut into squares or bars and store leftovers covered in the refrigerator.
