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.
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.
Fold the micro chocolate pieces into the mixture with care. They will contribute a delectable texture and additional chocolatey flavor.
Allow some of the parchment paper to dangle over the edges of an 8×8-inch square baking dish to facilitate removal.
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.
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.
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.
Drizzle some melted chocolate over the bars for an additional indulgent touch. Wait until it has cooled and hardened before serving.
