Makes 6 servings
1 scoop 310 Chocolate
1 cup peanut butter (melted)
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup rolled oats
1.5 tbsp dark chocolate chips or chunks
2 tbsp pecan pieces
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Add all of the ingredients except the dark chocolate chips or chunks into your food processor, and process until everything is combined.
Once the mixture is holding together, transfer into the loaf pan. Fold the parchment over the top and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Once even, add chocolate chips or chunks and press those into the top of the mixture as well. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to harden (for 30 mins to 1 hour), before removing from the pan and cutting into bars.
You can then store the bars in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Enjoy cold or at room temperature.
