Pin It Since it is officially summer it is too hot to turn on my oven very often. Because of that I was looking for some no bake recipes. These granola bars are chewy, filling and quite delicious. They are great for breakfast, a snack or even dessert.
No Bake Granola Bars
1 cup rolled oats, I used instant
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans ***optional
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1. Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. This just helps the bars come out of the pan easily. You could skip this step, but you might have trouble getting the bars out in nice pieces.
2. In a mixing bowl combine the peanut butter, vanilla and honey. Stir in oats, coconut, flax, pecans and chocolate chips. **If the mixture seems too dry add a little more honey to bring it together.
3. Press mixture into the pan. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to let it firm up.
