These Oatmeal Breakfast bars are so easy and taste just like store-bought but are high in protein, have no refined sugar, butter, oil and are gluten free and healthy!
In a large bowl, microwave the peanut butter and the honey until it is smooth and fluid, about 1 minute. Sprinkle the coconut sugar on top and let it stand for 5 minutes. Do not mix the coconut sugar in.
