Hi everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Mine went by way too fast but I was able to get some rest and did some work around the house.  I was supposed to do my maternity photoshoot but it was too cloudy and stormy so we decided to push it back a week. I’ll keep you posted.

Here’s why you’ll love my Clean Eating Oatmeal Bars recipe

To make my Clean Eating Oatmeal Bars recipe you start by melting some coconut oil and nut butter in a bowl.  You can use your favorite type but I tested with peanut butter.

Next, you mix in the goodies like the oats, chocolate chips, almonds, and coconut!  I love how just a little coconut adds so much naturally sweet flavor.  The bars bake in the oven for only 15 minutes.  The hardest part is waiting to let them cool.  After the pan cools you pop them in the fridge to allow them to continue to harden.  Once hard you can cut them in bars or even squares depending on your mood.

This Clean Eating Oatmeal Bars recipe don’t have any added sugar other than a touch of honey and what’s already in the chocolate chips… but they still have enough sweetness to satisfy that afternoon snack craving.

I adore this flavor combo but you could get creative and sub out dried fruit or different types of nuts.  Any way you make it these are bound to be a family favorite.

    This is my favorite granola bar combination! Something about oats, coconut, and chocolate just works together.
