Quadruple “C” Granola Bars

Chocolate Chips. Coconut. Chia Seeds. Craisins.

These granola bars taste like the should be VERY bad for you. My kids devour them and I have to remind myself to only eat one! I prefer storing these in the freezer as the soften very quickly.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 tsp sea or himalayan salt
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup craisins
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

In a large bowl combine the cocoa powder, oats, chia seeds, and shredded coconut.  In a smaller bowl combine the maple syrup, peanut butter, and coconut oil. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds to combine all ingredients smoothly.
