Cacao Peanut Butter Oat Bars (Vegan/Plant based)

These are very, very, VERY tasty and even Better there’s no baking involved. In our household there’s me my fiancé Jake and Larry the dog, obviously Larry isn’t allowed these so the bars last a while as they make 16. They are a hit, we love them served with a tea of choice or coffee it’s a perfect healthy sweet treat.
