This is a recipe a friend shared with me.

1 - cup natural peanut butter or any nut butter
2/3 - cup honey
1/2 - cup coconut oil (do not substitute) 
2 - cups old fashioned oats 
1 1/2 - cup semi sweet chocolate chips 

In a medium - large sized saucepan, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil.

Remove from heat and add oats and chocolate chips. Stir until combined and chocolate chips are melted.

Spread into a 9x13 pan that has been lined with foil.  Refrigerate mixture until hardened, about an hour.  Cut into bars and store leftovers in the refrigerator. 

Recipe yields: 12 - 24 bars depending on size

Cook's Note: Using old fashioned oats gives these cocoa bars a chewy texture. I have not tried this recipe using quick oats, so I cannot say what the results would be like. Keep these bars stored in the refrigerator to prevent melting.
