Indulge your sweet tooth a bit healthier with these easy to make Healthy Scotcharoo Bars – they’re gluten free, dairy free, and peanut free!
These yummy bars are a healthy remake of one of my favorite childhood treats: Scotcharoo Bars. My mom used to make Scotcharoo Bars when I was younger and I LOVED them! Not much has changed, I think I could eat an entire pan of these if I really wanted to!
I’m definitely NOT recommending you eat the whole batch, by yourself, just exaggerating how delicious these are. With chocolate on top, these can be truly addicting!
You may notice that something is missing from the other photos: chocolate. Most Scotcharoo Bars have a lovely layer of chocolate on top, but I left the chocolate off my second batch of bars since chocolate doesn’t agree with me so well anymore. You can choose to have chocolate on your bars or omit it, depending on your personal tastes or allergies.
I used super thick raw and unfiltered honey in this recipe. Our honey is so thick that it is a solid at room temp and I have to pry it out of the bucket to make recipes with it. It is amazing honey! We got it from a local honey guy in Riverton, Wyoming, not too far from here.
If you use store-bought liquid honey in this recipe, consider using a bit less honey to start ensure the bars will stick together. Because these bars have coconut oil in them as well, these store best and stick together best when kept in the fridge.
5 Ingredients, simple, delicious, and healthy! ‘Nuff said! 😉
I refreshed my old post by improving the recipe and taking new photos of the bars. My photography has come a long way! It’s still far from perfect, but here’s my old post photo:
