THE INGREDIENTS LIST:

2 Cups.Of old-fashioned oats.

1 Cup.Of creamy peanut butter (or almond butter for a nutty twist).

1/2 Cup.Of honey (or maple syrup for a vegan option).

1/2 Cup.Of unsweetened shredded coconut.

1/2 Cup.Of mini chocolate chips.

1/3 Cup.Of cocoa powder.

1 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.

1/4 Tsp.Of salt.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1st Step

Combine the oats, peanut butter, honey, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a large mixing basin. Thoroughly combine the ingredients until a uniform, glutinous dough forms.

2nd Step

Fold the micro chocolate pieces into the mixture with care. They will contribute a delectable texture and additional chocolatey flavor.

3rd Step

Allow some of the parchment paper to dangle over the edges of an 8×8-inch square baking dish to facilitate removal.

4th Step

Transfer the mixture to the dish and use the back of a utensil or your palms to flatten it down firmly. Ensure an even distribution and compaction.

5th Step

Refrigerate the concoction for at least two hours to enable the bars to solidify. This will allow the cereals to incorporate the flavors and textures, resulting in a dense, tasty bar.

6th Step

Once the bars have hardened, remove the dish from the refrigerator and raise the parchment paper to remove them effortlessly. Place it on a cutting board and cut it into desired-sized squares or bars.

7th Step

Drizzle some melted chocolate over the bars for an additional indulgent touch. Wait until it has cooled and hardened before serving.
