Chocolate No Bake Cookie Bars {The New Healthy No Bake Cookie! ….made with Coconut Oil}


If you are looking for a healthy clean eating sweet treat, you are in luck.  Chocolate No Bake Cookie Bars are the bomb!

I recently found this recipe I had pinned on Pinterest back in February of last year and have been meaning to make them for some time now.  Who doesn't love  America's Classic Chocolate No Bake Cookies?



Coconut oil has become a rage in a lot of recipes.  I must say…I was a little skeptical at first when I started using it, but after using it in several recipes for a substitute for vegetable oil, butter, or even bacon grease, I am sold.  

Much to my surprise, I do not taste the coconut oil in recipes.  It is like it is disguised as a mystery ingredient.  It's what makes these bars so creamy, and you will want to use the organic unrefined coconut oil for the best results.


I need to tell you a little secret…you will not be able to eat just one of these bars.  Just saying…

Hope you get to  make some of The New Healthy Chocolate No Bake Cookie Bars real soon.  Enjoy!



Chocolate No Bake Cookie Bars

1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cups honey
1/2 cup coconut oil (use organic extra virgin coconut oil only)
12 oz. Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 to 2  cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut (unsweetened)

Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with a 12 x 16 inch sheet of parchment baking sheets.  Arrange the parchment baking sheet to come up the sides: set aside.

In a large saucepan, add peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil.  Heat over medium heat until smooth and creamy.

Remove from heat and add chocolate chips.  Stir until all the chips are melted.

Add 1 1/2 cups oatmeal and coconut.  Stir until all ingredients are incorporated.  Add remaining 1/2 cup oatmeal if you want it a little thicker.

Pour in the prepared pan.  Refrigerate until chocolate is hard enough to cut into bars.  It will take about an hour.

Lift out of the pan using the sides of the parchment paper.  Lay on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife into bars.

Refrigerate and store any bars that are not eaten.  These bars will soften and lose their shape if left out too long.

  4. How could I substitute the sweetener for stevia or Xylitol?
    Would it change texture?
