Chocolate Chunk Bars
These chocolate chunk bars are an ideal snack. You can tell yourself they’re healthy, because they have fiber and fruit and aren’t some processed junk you got from a vending machine. Yet, at the same time, there’s CHOCOLATE. . . and peanut butter and honey and other yummy things, if you’re into that. Quick breakfast on your way out the door? Grab a chocolate chunk bar. After-school snack? Chunk bar. Your friends or family invited you to an absurdly late dinner and you need something to tide you over? Chocolate chunk bars.
If you’d like to make them more healthy, you can even *gasp* leave the chocolate out. At that point, they would still be a delicious homemade granola bar. So basically, this recipe is for everyone who has ever been hangry. Enjoy!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup honey
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup dried fruit/nuts (cherries, raisins, cranberries, etc.)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Melt your peanut butter and honey together in a large pot. Remove from heat, add the oats, and stir until well combined. (You may have to add slightly more honey, depending on the size of your oats.)
When your mixture is combined, add your dried fruit/nuts to the mix. Finally, add your chocolate chips. They may begin to melt, which is just fine. Spread the bar mix into a 9″ x 9″ pan, and allow to set in the fridge for at least an hour. Slice into squares. Enjoy with a napkin and a tall glass of milk.
