You have probably tried plenty of oatmeal in your life and prefer something else? And what about healthy diet? We’ll help you to combine the beneficial product with fresh gustatory sense. Here we offer a healthy freezer breakfast recipe for those who like chocolate.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 3 tbsp honey (on emergency maple syrup)
- 10 piece dates (pitless)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 cups oats

Take a 9x9-inch baking pan and line with some baking paper.
Now take ¾ of the peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, dates, and vanilla and put all the ingredients to a bowl.
Using a food processor you should mix them smoothly.
Stir in the oats and pulse again in order to combine the components in a proper way.
You’ll get a crumbly but sticky mixture that is enough for holding the shape when you make the balls. That is the needed texture.
Take a prepared pan and place ¾ of the oat mixture onto its bottom pressing it so that it covers evenly the surface.
Now put a small saucepan over low heat and add chocolate chips in it, stirring the mass until it melt completely.
Pour the chocolate onto the oat layer in and spread it with a spoon.
Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate. You can press it gently to help it to adjust to each other.
Cover the pan with a film and put it into a refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
Check the surface. It must be firm. Now it is ready. Remove the crust from the pan and cut it into bars. Carefully place them into an airtight container and put it in the fridge. It can be stored for a rather long time.
In order to make it even better, melting the chocolate add a little bit of the peanut butter in the chocolate mass. This secret makes the filling chewy and easy to bite.
