Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter No-bake Candy Bars

A friend posted this recipe on facebook and they looked so good I had to try them!  I've made them a couple times now and they are so easy to whip up and then just set in the fridge to firm up.  

1 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil (no substitutes, this is what gives its creamy texture and flavor)
2 cups oats (not instant)
1 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1.  In a medium sized saucepan, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil.
2.  Remove from heat and add oats, chocolate chips and dried cranberries. 
3.  Stir until combined and chocolate chips are melted.
4.  Spread into a 9" x 13" pan. 
5.  Refrigerate until hardened, about an hour.  Store bars in the fridge.
NOTE: I used instant oats in these bars and regular sized semi-sweet chocolate chips and they turned out fine for me.
