Heaven Bars

What you need: 

3 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups peanut butter, crunchy or smooth
oil, as needed
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) bag vegan chocolate chips

What you do: 

1. Mix oats and peanut butter in a large bowl. Coat wooden spoon with oil so it doesn't stick as bad. Lightly oil an 8" baking pan.
2. Heat corn syrup and sugar until just boiling.
3. Pour sugar mix into oat mix and stir fast! Pour into pan and pat down flat. Oil your hands to prevent sticking again.
4. Pour all chocolate chips on top and cover. If not still hot enough, don't cover and just stick it in the oven for a minute on broil to melt.
5. Cool on wire rack or fridge for 12 hours. I make mine at night before bed so it's ready in the morning.
Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Thanks to the comments mine came out nice and yummy. With the addition of brown rice syrup, molasses, barley malt, applesauce, green powder, chia, raisins, coconut and cocnut oil mixed with the cocoa powder for topping, they are  break from the normal fare. Left out sugar, don't even notice.

Been having a desert craving and no money but i have all i need for these on hand and plan to make them soon :). I am a bit of a health nut so i plan to bulk it up some with chia, flax, rice bran, dried cherries, and maybe some spirulina powder. What can i say its fun making pretty colors lol :p!

great, easy recipe!  they really are delicious.  i used a bunch of instant oatmeal packets for most of the oatmeal (some regular flavored, some maple brown sugar, some cinnamon bun) since i never eat them.  each packet is 1/3 cup, btw.  i also used only about 3/4 cup sugar in the corn syrup mixture since the oatmeal packets have added sugar.  in the future when i make them again I'd be sure to add cinnamon to the oatmeal mixture if i dont use the instant packets. 

These taste like a candy bar!

This recipe has ALOT of sugar in it...  Perhaps substituting a fruit or fruit juice for some of the corn syrup and adding stevia and/or xylitol for the sugar may make this a more healthy desert.  I would also add dried fruit, coconut and chia, flax or sesame seeds or even pumpkin seeds to add some additional nutrition.  Otherwise this is a very nutrient lacking snack and not very heavenly but rather sugary.  And if you are going to go to all the trouble of making something- may as well make it nutritious. 

It wasnt designed to be healthy, just for fun.  Fudge is not healthy, but the most ppl love it anyway.  This is a very basic recipe, you can add anything you want.  I do like alot of sugar, you do not have to add as much, but I dont know how it will turn out.  I think dried fruits or nuts would be a wonderful addition, thanks for the suggestion.

Also, I "veganized" it from my grandma's recipe, so it is a family favorite.
