These no-bake chocolate oatmeal coconut bars are sinfully delicious, and rightfully so!

This recipe is for those of you with a sweet tooth. This is from a recipe that I’ve had since way back in my non-real food days that I’ve tweaked to make it better for the real food crowd. That being said, it should still be an occasional treat rather than a regular part of your diet. It’s been so long since I started making this dessert bar recipe that I honestly don’t remember where I found it. Most likely it was found in a magazine or on the back of a package somewhere. But it is really delicious…although it is very rich, so a little goes a long way! I love to pair this with a nice glass of raw milk…yum!
