2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup oats (not quick oats)
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
In a sauce pan on low-medium heat, melt and combine the butter, peanut butter, and honey. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla, followed by the oats.
Let the mixture cool completely. If it is still warm during the next step, it will melt the chocolate.
Once cool, add the coconut and mini chocolate chips. Stir until evenly combined.
Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with wax or parchment paper. Press granola bar mixture evenly into the pan and place in the fridge until firm (about an hour). Remove and cut into bars. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I place pieces of parchment paper between layers to keep them from sticking to each other.
