Today I am excited to share this No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars. I have been wanting to do another chocolate no-bake recipe for a while. John absolutely loves no-bake recipes. I am pretty sure I could make a new one weekly and he would not complain. This recipe is so easy to make and tastes amazing.
No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars
A few weeks ago I shared pics from my trip to Washington DC with American Heritage Chocolate. There is also a recipe for Boozy Hot Chocolate which is pretty darn delicious! While I was in DC I learned so much about the history of chocolate and American Heritage Chocolate.
If you have ever wondered about the history of chocolate make sure and check out the American Heritage Chocolate Website to see their history information. It is amazing! Did you know that chocolate was once used as currency?
Did you know…..
- American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic line of products—developed from chocolate recipes from the 1750’s—that celebrates chocolate’s important role in the lives of Americans during the 18th century and is reminiscent of what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Ben Franklin would have enjoyed, combining all-natural ingredients and exotic spices.
- Made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives, American Heritage Chocolate is artisanal dark chocolate containing 63% cacao.
- Mildly spicy, and slightly sweet, American Heritage Chocolate is flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla.
- American Heritage Chocolate is Kosher-certified, made without dairy, wheat, peanuts, or tree nuts, and is made in a facility that does not contain peanuts and tree nuts.

Those look simply out of this world! My granddaughter is allergic to peanut butter so we might need to find a substitute but it's otherwise a fantastic recipe we must try! 🙂
I had the privelige of visiting MOunt Vernon on behalf of American Heritage Chocolate. I leanred so much about the company. I am sure these bars are absolutelydeliciouss.

I am also a huge fan of no bake recipes. They are fast and easy. The kids always love them and I can always whip up a batch at the last minute. They are great for when you have last minute company coming over.

Well you had me at chocolate, but the no bake was the ultimate 🙂 This recipe sounds and looks wonderful. I so enjoy dark chocolate now and love that there are more and more recipes incorporating this ingredient. Its funny how the tastebuds change as the years go on, I hated peanut butter as a child and now really enjoy it. I will need to pin this for later, thanks
