I microwaved the honey, peanut butter, vanilla mixture for about a minute and it did the trick (while the coconut and oats were toasting- 10 minutes is accurate for coconut, oats could use a little longer). After combining all the ingredients I added 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, then baked 10 minutes. They were undercooked and goopy to the point I couldn't take it out of the pan, but after cooling it hardened and stuck together (I was aiming for chewy). I reshaped the bars after cutting, wrapped them individually in wax paper, then stuck them in the fridge. I didn't really follow the instructions of the recipe, but I give it 5 stars for balance, simple everyday ingredients, and ease of cooking. Not too much peanut butter, not a strong honey taste, just a good chewy oat bar! My picky 4yo keeps asking me to make more- next time I'll double the batch and keep everything the same!! Thanks for the recipe! Might also be good with 1/4 cup cherry Craisins if you're looking for an extra something.
