  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant espresso powder optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips to press into the top of bars


  • Line an 8x8" pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Place the peanut butter, honey, cocoa powder, coconut oil, espresso powder (if using), and salt in a small sauce pan over medium low heat until melted and smooth.
  • Place the oats in a medium bowl. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the oats and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Press the chocolate chips into the top of the bars if using, and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 1/2 hours or until firm.
  • Remove the bars from the pan and cut into 12 bars. Store in between parchment paper in an airtight container in the fridge. Bars will become soft and gooey at room temperature, and are best when they're cold. Enjoy!


  • Be sure to use 100% certified gluten-free oats to make these bars gluten-free.
  • Store bars in the fridge for up to one week. Bars soften when kept at room temperature.
