Homemade “Candy Bars”


08 Dec Homemade “Candy Bars”

Yields:24 bars
(I adapted this recipe from Pinterest to be gluten-free & dairy-free. If you want to make it nut
free, sub out with Sunbutter.)


  • 2 cups creamy organic peanut butter
  • 1 & 1/3 cup organic honey (local, unfiltered)
  • 1 cup coconut oil (No substitutions! This is what gives the bars a creamy texture & flavor.)
  • 6 & 1/2 cups oats, NOT instant (We use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free rolled oats)
  • 1 & 1/4 cups dairy-free Chocolate Chips (We use EnjoyLife brand)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


  1. In a large stock pot, melt together peanut butter, honey, & coconut oil over medium heat.
  2. Turn heat to LOW and stir in oats (about 2 cups at a time) & cranberries. Be sure everything
    is combined & coated evenly.
  3. Turn heat OFF & stir in chocolate chips until they are melted.
  4. Transfer into a large greased cookie sheet. Spread the mixture out evenly in the pan so the
    bars will be the same thickness.
  5. Place cookie sheet in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes or until firm. Cut
    square-shaped bars and remove them from the cookie sheet. Enjoy them cold or room
    temperature. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container, layering the bars with
    parchment paper to keep them from sticking together.
