Chocolate, banana, and coconut-filled bars! I love to eat these right out of the freezer for a tasty frozen snack. They make a quick breakfast or midday snack for kids and adults alike.

  • Line an 8-inch baking pan with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray.

  • Press mixture evenly into the pan and place freeze until firm, 2 to 3 hours. Cut into bars. Serve frozen, or let soften in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

I prefer to store these in the freezer for a firmer texture. If you keep these in the refrigerator, they will have a soft, gooey texture.

These kind of remind me of a slightly-better-for-you no-bake cookie. I like that a lot! They're really easy to throw together and make for a good grab-and-go breakfast. I put the mixture into a 9 x 5" loaf pan instead of an 8 x 8" and then cut them into 10 bars. This made for a slightly thicker bar that didn't soften as quickly once it was out of the freezer. Overall we really liked these! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Oh my word... these are GOOD! I made these exactly as directed and was pleasantly surprised by the results. I actually like them slightly thawed and on the soft/chewy side. You can really taste all of the flavors in these and one flavor does not over-power another. So easy to make too! Thanks France for the recipe! Read More

These are great! I substituted peanut butter for the almond butter because it's what I had on hand. I made these for my son for a quick on the go breakfast and he loves them. They taste really decadent but they're actually good for you which is always a bonus for us moms! Read More

These were a great guilt-free treat! I loved the texture slightly thawed right from the freezer. The texture reminded me of a no-bake chocolate oat cookie which I really liked. They had a little bit of a strong banana taste for me but my husband liked them as is. It could have been the size banana I used. Read More

9.1.18 I agree with the recipe submitter. These bars do soften pretty quickly but their consistency is spot on coming right out of the freezer. Don t worry you won t break a tooth it s perfectly O.K. to enjoy them immediately. Not one flavor dominates and they re simply creamy and chocolatey. I cut mine into 16 pieces so they re one bite. Super easy to make and I love having these on hand in freezer for a quick morning breakfast with a cup of coffee or a satisfying snack later in the day. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

I made these with 6 tablespoons of ovaltine and 1 tbsp on honey (as I don't have carnation instant breakfast) and added 1/4 cup of chocolate pieces. I also used a small plastic container lined with pam sprayed parchment since the didn't need to be cooked. They were pretty good and not too sweet. Read More
