Chocolate treat for a weekend trip

Need I say more...Its chocolate all the way! 
Recipe for Energy bars (adapted from Giada)
Oil for greasing
1  large egg
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup butter, melted
21/4 cups oats
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup chocolate chips
¼ cup Cranberries and currants
2 tbsp sweetened desiccated coconut
Preheat the oven to 180c.Grease a square nonstick baking pan and lay a piece of greaseproof paper in the pan with an overhang (on the sides for easy removal later) and grease the paper as well.Slightly beat the eggs and stir in the peanut butter, melted butter, oats, currants, cranberries, coconut, chocolate chips and almonds. Tip mixture into the baking pan, smoothening with a spatula to form an even layer. Bake for about 15-18 minutes. Let the mixture cool a bit (I left it for a good 2 hours) and then cut into bars or squares.
