Kitchen Sink Bars
Created by: Alex of Delish Knowledge
Everything but the kitchen sink bars! These salted chocolate granola bars are incredibly delicious and perfect for after-school snacks or dessert. Packed with walnuts, coconut, peanut butter,prunes… and chocolate!
- Place the oats, walnuts, shredded coconut and salt in a large bowl and mix together.
- Place the peanut butter, honey, maple syrup and 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until melted together, then add in the vanilla extract.
- Add the peanut mixture to the oat mixture and stir together to combine. Mix in the chopped prunes, then press the mixture into an 8×8 inch square pan.
- Place the chocolate chips and remaining tablespoon coconut oil and melt together. I do this in the microwave and stir every 20-30 seconds until fully melted. Spread on the prepared oats and place in the fridge until hardened, about 2-3 hours. Slice into 12 squares and enjoy. For best results, keep stored in the fridge.
*I used all maple syrup in this recipe and thought it was too runny; I think honey is needed to help prevent these from being too ‘sticky.’ That being said, if you want to make these fully vegan, I’d suggest brown rice syrup instead of honey.
