    1. Check out a few stores. I found a brand that isn’t expensive. I try to buy all fats in glass jars. However, coconut oil and dairy products are a problem. I do as much as I can.

  1. Great post! It’s not real foods that make people over weight and cause their health to suffer. It’s over processed food. Of course everything in moderation but you can’t go wrong with back to the basic all natural ingredients.

  2. Olena, These sound so yummy! My favorite things in life are dark chocolate and peanut butter. i absolutely loved your post and totally agree with everything you said! I eat very healthy and exercise 2 hours a day because it makes me feel good but never feel like I am on a diet. I just enjoy eating healthy clean foods and not processed. Thanks !

  3. I love that you include the nutritional info because I have to count carbs to know how much medication to take and seeing the rest is handy so I know if I need to make any adjustments. It’s so nice to have a break from calculating it myself.

    1. You could use sunflower seeds, walnuts or hazelnuts instead. You need a substitute to make up in volume otherwise bars will be too runny.

  4. Thanks for the lovely recipe. I’m going to try it this weekend and I’m sure my friends and I are going to enjoy it very much.
    I just have a question, I’m not crazy about coconut flakes can I add more almonds and oats instead ?
    Thank you very much for your answer.

    1. Yes, you can do that. You won’t need much extra oats and PB since coconut flakes are very light and kind of “dissolve” in batter. However, you won’t taste them as much as PB flavour is strong.

  5. I so agree with your views on extreme diet tactics. I’m a certified wellness coach and can’t tell you how much damage I have to undo with my clients from all the messages floating around out there. Great post and recipe!

    1. Right?! I can only imagine what you have to hear. I’m not certified anyone but most stuff I hear about nutrition from regular moms doesn’t make sense. It all comes from Internet and this marketing hype of all things that make money. I’m always mesmerized how people are willing to find the next easy way out aka magic pill instead of looking down the root of the problem – just eat what you are meant to eat and you won’t have all those problems. Stop telling me you have celiac by self diagnosing and removing pizza from diet but still eating gluten free fruit loops. And not willing to do a doctor’s test for celiac. It is ridiculous what I hear. Duh you will feel better without processed junk but it is not gluten necessarily. Unfortunately this society has a long way to go in terms of food and I’m afraid we and our kids are paying for it with our health. Sad.:(

  6. I made these and they’re delicious, but turned out a bit dry and crumbly, maybe next time more maple syrup? Any other suggestions?

    1. Really?! What type of PB you used? No, I wouldn’t add more sugar. Not worth it. Add a splash of water or almond milk next time – oats will absorb it and act as a glue.

    2. Hi again. So I remade these bars yesterday again, double batch because I love them, and had no problem at all. You have to press and pat dough with spatula well to form one brick. Maybe that was the issue or the measurements were off. I had no problem with the recipe at all.

  7. We make these weekly. We store them individually wrapped in the freezer and toss them in lunch boxes and road trips coolers all the time. My kids love making them. simple, easy, super clean and way yummy. Thanks Olena.

    1. How do I make my kids like these peanut butter bars? I don’t get it – oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips – everything they like and they don’t wanna eat them. Darn it. However, I tried only once. I will try one more time – this time I made them with cacao nibs so no wonder. Maybe I will make them a bit sweeter too. Glad to hear you are having success with these.:)

  8. Hi Olena, I made these bars today to take away on long haul flight to India from UK, I have just tasted the first bar and I absolutely love it, it’s not only delicious but also very filling. I am taking half batch with me and giving half to my sister. I am sure she will love it too.

    1. Hi Ayesha. Wow, you are ahead of me. Bars are very filling, half a batch will last you to India and back haha. I will make these with almond butter for my flight back from Mexico, great idea!!!!!!! Have a safe flight!!!
