INGREDIENTS:

Oat Bars:

1 1/4 cup organic, gluten-free oats
1 cup organic, unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup almond flour
1 cup organic, natural creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp organic maple syrup
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla

Chocolate Topping:

1/3 cup Lily’s chocolate chips
2 Tbsp organic, natural creamy peanut butter

DIRECTIONS:

In a small bowl, combine the oats, coconut, and almond flour.

Then, over low-medium heat, melt the peanut butter and maple syrup. Make sure to stir often, so it doesn’t burn. Then, add the salt and vanilla and mix well.

Combine the peanut butter mixture and the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated. Then, press the mixture into an 8×8-inch pan. Set aside while making the chocolate topping.

For the topping, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter over low-medium heat on the stove. Stir often, so it doesn’t burn. When fully melted, drizzle over the oat bars, and then set the bars in the fridge until fully set.

Cut into bars and enjoy!
