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.
For the topping:
Melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter together on the stovetop or in the microwave (start by heating for 60 seconds. Stir then heat in 30 second increments until smooth).
Refined-sugar free topping:
In the microwave or on the stovetop, gently melt together the chocolate, honey (or maple syrup) and peanut butter.
Putting it together:
Drizzle or spread melted chocolate/peanut butter over bars.
Let the bars setup on the counter or in the fridge until the chocolate sets.
Cut and serve at room temperature or cold!
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
