Makes 10-12 bars
Ready in 15 minutes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a microwave safe container, add peanut butter and butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and then microwave for another 15-20 seconds, until peanut butter has thinned out.
Add in the honey, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon - stir until completely smooth. Now add in the quick oats and cocoa powder, and chocolate chips until evenly coated.
Pour mixture into the pan, and press down with an extra sheet of parchment paper. Really pack it in to make a flat even layer.
Freeze until firm enough to cut. Enjoy!
Keep these in the refrigerator or freezer until you are ready to eat.
You can also make these into little balls and roll them in cocoa powder for a little extra sweetness.
