Nerds Gotta Eat: Mean Girl Bars

Another delicious, gluten free, recipe from Lauren Lopez’s These Treats Don’t Suck! I made these for Fangirl’s Night Out and work a little while back, and they went over wonderfully! I highly recommend them, but be wary of allergies.

To make some Mean Girl Bars, you’ll need:
3/4c roughly chopped nuts (I used walnuts this time)
1/2c creamy peanut butter
1/2c honey
1c gluten free rolled oats
1/3c shredded coconut (I used almonds instead)
1/2tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp salt
1/2c chocolate chips (the recipe doesn’t call for it, but chocolate is great)

Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil, and spray with cooking spray. Toast your rolled oats and coconut/almonds by putting them in a big pan on low heat and stirring them. Be careful, while doing this, because it’s really easy to have the heat just slightly too high, and burn your stuff. So keep it low, in a big pan, and watch it like a hawk! Mix up your other ingredients, then add your toasted stuff.

Press them into your pan, making sure they’re all spread evenly, and put them in the fridge for a couple hours to chill. When I took mine out of the fridge (4 hours later), they were still kind of soft. So I cut them up into individual bars, wrapped them individually in wax paper, and put them in my container. This way, everyone could get their own without getting all goopy on each other’s stuff, making cleanup easier!

I loved these bars. They’re a good texture, quick and easy to make, and absolutely delicious. But since they’re loaded with nuts, they can be a bit dangerous at parties. Make sure that they’re labelled when you bring them places, so people know. Keep everyone safe!
