4 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats or Quick Oats

1cup whole wheat flower

1tsp bakins soda

1tsp vanilla

1cup softened butter

1cup honey

small bar of dark chocolate broken up into chunks


grease up a lasagna sized pan or I used a muffin pan

preheat the oven to 325 F

mix butter and honey together in a large bowl

then add in the rest of the ingredients, except chocolate chunks, slowly mixing very well.

press into pan or muffin cups firmly so they don’t fall apart

then press in chocolate chunks and sprinkle with coconut if desired

bake for 20 mins or 25 mins if in muffin cups. remove and let cool

These are so delicious. although they aren’t crunchy they are still a great replacement besides corn syrup laden store bought brands. You can also replace the butter with unsalted natural peanut butter.
