eat cleaner these days. It's always a good goal anyway but to be honest, four people in this house have a sweet tooth sometimes and I love being able to offer a little fudge-like treat after dinner or school that I know contains nothing but good ingredients. Enter these Resolution bars. (Basically, if you made any clean eating resolutions for new years, eating these bars won't break them. How's that for yummy?)
Sasha-twist. Plus they are pretty much a one bowl (or pot) affair so you can't get much quicker and easier than that. Also. I hate raisins. Yet I love them in this. My children aren't big fans either but they haven't figured out that there are raisins in these, and eat them all the time. I feel sneaky.
Don't break your resolutions bars:
Dump the following into a medium saucepan:
1 cup peanut butter (I use the chunky natural kind that contains no sugar.)
2/3 cup honey
1/2 to 3/4 cup cocoa. (I have used both a 1/2 cup and accidentally dumped in 3/4 cup and both versions turned out fine so I suppose it comes down to preference.)
1/2 cup coconut oil (no substitutions)
* melt the above ingredients together until smooth and then stir in the following two ingredients until combined;
1/2 cup raisins
2 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
*Spray a 9x13 pan lightly with nonstick spray and spread chocolatey mixture into it. Allow to firm in the refrigerator before cutting into bars with a sharp knife. Store in refrigerator. Enjoy!
love them!! Sadly, I was working on a darling dipped necklace design in sweet pinky coral and cream beads... and that listing is going to have to wait due to circumstances beyond my control. Dangit. They would have been so darling for Valentine's gifts too. Double dangit.
Happy Tuesday friends...what are you up to?
