No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

No-Bake Bars, you guys. Hands down one of my favorite things to make. It never ceases to amaze me how many different versions/combinations you can come up with when it comes to no-bake recipes. They’re highly adaptable and can be changed in so many different ways. I think I like making them so much because when it comes to actual baking, precision is critical. Measuring correctly and following instructions is so important.

Not when it comes to no-bake wonders, though. You can pretty much guesstimate and throw together anything you have a craving for. I have never had a no-bake treat I didn’t like.

This one surpassed my expectations. As the recipe title indicates, there’s plenty of chocolate, coconut, and peanut buttery goodness to be found in each bite. But, there’s more. More coconut (in the form of coconut oil), a healthy amount of pecans for texture and yummy oats.

How can this combo not be delightful?

I like to think of them as a grown-up version of a true childhood staple. Preparing the bars alone brought back so many memories. Adam took one look and knew exactly what I was making. He even asked me if I was using his childhood recipe because the mixture in the bowl looked so similar.

When Adam and I got married and had just moved in together, I stumbled upon “Adam’s Cookbook”, which is a handwritten little booklet my hubby made when he was about 8 or 9 years old. Containing many of his childhood faves (most of which he still adores). The one recipe he always talks about are the no-bake cookies he made sure to include in his book. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I have yet to make his recipe. I know! My next no-bake recipe will definitely be his fabulous cookie recipe, ha.

But let’s keep our eyes on the bars at hand. The perfect word to describe them would be fudgy. I couldn’t believe how rich, thick, and beyond satisfying they were. Certainly a surprise when you consider how little work goes into making them.

You simply melt coconut oil, peanut butter, and honey and then add the dry ingredients: chocolate chips, oats, pecans, and coconut flakes. Press the mixture into a pan, let them set and cut into bars. So good!

    Sounds AWESOME!!! Do you use sweetened coconut flakes?

  2. These were delicious!! Do u know how many calories are in these?

  3. Wow!! Sounds fantastic! Just one question though, is the coconut oil a must use for the recipe or could I substitute it for cooking oil?

  4. Isn’t the internet grand? I gained 10 pounds just reading this recipe. All my favorite food groups in one. Chocolate, coconut, peanut butter, pecans, and honey. Darn my computer crash from all the drool getting in the keyboard.
