You will never want to buy store-bought granola bars again after making these chewy no-bake granola bars with chocolate chips. The best part about these granola bars is that they are no-bake and don't require any baking in the oven.
The bars are made with natural ingredients including coconut oil, honey, and oats, etc... They are also very good for you too!
What Ingredients do I need?
In this section, you can find substitutes or suggestions for certain ingredients. I also will try and list out what the ingredients' purpose is for.
This granola bar is made with real ingredients that are not WW friendly. I have also not tried using substitutes for any of the ingredients below. PB2 does not even compare to real peanut butter in my opinion. 🙂
Peanut Butter - Real peanut butter made of only ground-up peanuts - Kirkland has a good brand at Costco
Honey - Use Real raw and unfiltered honey
Coconut Oil - this gets melted in the pan so it doesn’t have to be melted prior
Shredded Coconut - unsweetened
Mini Chocolate Chips or chocolate chips
How to make Coconut Bars
To print the full recipe please see the recipe card below.
Heat a medium sized pot on medium-low heat over the stove top.
Melt together nut butter, honey, and coconut oil, stirring until smooth in the pot.
Remove from the stove and stir in the oats and coconut. Pour the oats into a 9- by 13-inch lined baking dish. Evenly spread the oat mix throughout the pan using a spatula or offset knife.
Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and firmly press down with the back of a spatula or clean hands.
Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Slice into squares or bars.
Store granola bars in the refrigerator in an airtight container with wax paper separating the layers, or individually wrapped in plastic wrap
Serving size: 1 bar. (Cut into 15 equal bars)

Love the simplicity of this recipe. However I usually don't have shredded coconut on hand. So I chopped up some raw walnuts, roasted them and the texture and taste they provide.is amazing!

These bars are so good and so easy to make. Better than store-bought granolas. I feel health smart eating them. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I used cannabis infused peanut butter and coconut oil and these bars sent me and my girlfriend to the moon! they are also very delicious! well played.
These are delicious. I made them as an alternative to the boxed bars I put in my kids lunch. Unfortunately, I found most of them broke so I will try a slightly smaller pan next time.
The bars need to set in the fridge to firm up. You can sure try that with rice krispies. Bet that would be good too!
I will be trying these, my husband has diverticulitis so no nuts or seeds. Why does this need to be refrigerated? Can I put rice krispies in instead of coconut (he don't like it) Thanks for your help.

I love that these are no-bake and have so few ingredients! They look super tasty! (also - Fig and Olive Oil Crisps?! I have to find those!)
