Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Peanut Butter Granola Bars 2

Seems like forever since the last #chocolateparty, but it has only been a month!  Maybe because I made my December edition early in November, I was just so excited for mint and chocolate together!  This month has proven harder for me though.  This month the theme is coconut.  See, I don’t like coconut.  There in lies the problem.  But I got creative, and these granola bars are awesome!

I may not like coconut, but I do like using coconut oil.  Not sure if it is a texture thing or what, but I just can’t do shredded coconut.  I have made granola bars using coconut oil in the past, but they needed to be done again.  And healthier, and better.

If you do like coconut, adding shredded coconut to these would be a great edition.  Or chopped nuts, if that’s how you role.  I decided I needed to get rid of the mini marshmallow bites that were in my pantry, so I added those.  Not very many though, only 1/4 of a cup, so I am still going to consider these good for you.  My son has already had 2 of them today, he loves them!
