Chocolate Coconut Oat Bars

These chocolate coconut oat bars are my idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day treat. Trust me, your weekend needs these bars, Valentine’s Day or not. Speaking of the weekend, I am so happy it’s Friday! It’s been a long week and I’m excited to finally get some time in the kitchen. Our last weekend was spent in Moncton as we were dog-sitting for my parents who were off to Montreal.
