Best Ever Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Bars

This is from Money Saving Mom.  It's not healthy, but a great treat once in a while!

Best Ever Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Bars

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup shredded coconut (optional)
1/2 cup chopped nuts, raisins, or dried cranberries
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil over medium-low heat in a saucepan on the stove. 
Remove from heat once it’s melted together and add in the oats, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, nuts/raisins, and vanilla. Stir together until the chocolate is completely melted.
Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and cool in the fridge. If you’d like thicker bars, you can pour the mixture into a smaller pan.
When the mixture is hardened, cut into bars and eat. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
