In a small bowl mix together oats, coconut and almond meal. Set aside
In a large, microwave safe bowl or in a pot on the stove, gently melt the peanut butter and honey together until smooth. (If your peanut butter is liquid at room temperature, simply mix the honey and peanut butter together without warming).
Add vanilla and salt (to taste...I love sweet/salty so I use ½ tsp) and stir until combined.
Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
Spread into an 8x8” pan and set aside.
Refined-sugar free topping:
Putting it together:
Drizzle or spread melted chocolate/peanut butter over bars.
