Healthy Treat -- Chocolate Granola Bars

We'll be traveling to Rochester this weekend for my dad's birthday/retirement party.  With a four hour drive (each way) we'll need some healthy treats to take along.  Here is what I came up with:

Chocolate Granola Bars

Melt 1/2 c. coconut oil in a large sauce pan.
Stir in 1 c. natural peanut butter.
Add: 1/4 c. cocoa powder
         1/4 c. sucanat
         1/2 tsp. salt
Stir well.
Add: 1 c. shredded coconut
         1 c. raisins
         2 c. oatmeal
Mix well.  Press into greased 9x13 pan. Chill; Cut; Serve!
Store in the fridge for best results.

These should be a yummy treat for the road trip!  And hopefully provide the extra energy needed to navigate the traffic through the Cities!
