This snack combines peanut butter and coconut oil to make the tastiest little snack bar: perfect for those on the go snacks that cost less than supermarket bars. Although the mint flavor is perfect in these, if your not a fan you could change this for an orange flavour or any other flavour of your choosing!

  3. Add in nut butter, syrup, melted coconut oil, and peppermint extract. Stir gently until well combined.

  7. Pour melted chocolate over bars and place in freezer for 30 minutes, or refrigerator for at least 1 hour to set. Lift parchment paper from pan and cut into 8 bars.
