I posted a picture of these No-Bake Almond Butter & Chocolate Oatmeal Bars on Facebook the other day and a lot of you liked the post and told me that you wanted the recipe. I’m happy to report that this recipe came from my very own mom, who saw it in Clean Eating Magazine. Go mom for finding an awesome, healthy sweet to snack on!
If you’re one who likes to eat amazing food, but you don’t want to spend a lot of time on a recipe, this is for you! This recipe is so easy and requires very little on your part. The hardest part of this recipe? Waiting for the 3-4 hours it takes for the bars to set.
I’m a big snacker and working from home is hell some times. I HAVE to make sure that I have healthy snacks on hand because if not, I’ll go nuts on things I shouldn’t eat or I’ll go to
These Bars are the perfect sweet treat to have on hand. Not only are they easy to make but they also taste incredible. I can make a big batch of them on Sunday and they’ll last all week. I love a recipe like that. They are also great to make when company comes over or if you want to take a sweet treat to the office that isn’t not cake or cookies.

Oh my word – YUMMY! And so easy! Lately I have been all about having little-to-no-clean-up. Also, isn’t coconut oil amazing? I have gotten on such a kick in the last year and I use it for lots of recipes. Thanks for sharing this 🙂

Yum! Cannot wait to try these out. I’ll be substituting cherries for cranberries though. And maybe some raisins too?
