Nut crunch chocolate PB bars

I just came up with these and they are out of this world!!
Photo: Here is a photo of these yummy Nut Crunch Bars.
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup raw honey
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 nuts of your choice 
1/4 cup coconut chips, unsweetened (optional)

In a medium saucepan melt peanut butter, coconut oil and chocolate chips on medium low heat. Stir often.  Add honey just til blended in well. Turn off heat and add vanilla. Combine nuts and coconut in a metal or glass bowl. Pour chocolate mix over nuts. Spoon into mini-muffin cup pan. (Fills one pan.)
Place in freezer for a few hours.
They easily pop out of the cups just by gently pushing a knife down on one side. There is no sticking at all. They come out clean. If you don't have a mini-muffin pan, you could use a normal muffin pan and then chop them into pieces. You could also put this into a square pan and then just cut them into bars I bet. I just love the way they look coming out of the mini-muffin tins. Sorry no photo yet!

They are so rich and delicious and you can use any kind of nuts you like. They do need to store in the freezer or fridge or they will get to melty and oily.


  1. Those sound so good! I love how easy it is to make healthy treats like these. And they're easy to change up like this, too!


  2. I am cutting down the honey since they are still so sweet. I'd like to replace some of the chocolate chips with cocoa some day too.
