The flaxseed, almond, and coconut are helpful for a strong healthy heart. But the deep chocolatey 100% organic cacao is full with antioxidants. When the two combine, you are left with nothing but greatness! Here's how to make them!


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup chopped, dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup almond flakes


1. In a large bowl, combine the oats, cacao powder, 1/3 cup coconut, flaxseed, cranberries, chocolate chips, and chia seeds. This will be MIXTURE 1

2. Stir combination until well combined

3. In a separate bowl, add in the almond flakes, 1/4 cup coconut. This will be MIXTURE 2

4. In a small pot, warm the peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla on a low/medium heat until all contents are completely melted

5. Mix together the melted peanut butter combination with MIXTURE 1. Then spread it even on a non-stick baking sheet. Allow this to sit for 5-10 minutes in a cool, dry area

6. Finally, spread MIXTURE 2 over top of your bars and enjoy!
