Author's Notes

If you don’t have oat flour or a way to grind the oats into a fine flour-like consistency, you can substitute with any flour. You can use cacao powder in place of the ground cacao nibs, that’s just what I had on hand. If you don’t have cacao nibs or cacao powder, Dutch-processed cocoa powder could be used as a substitute.

step 1
Line an 8x8-inch glass dish or pan with Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed).
step 2
Add Oats (3 cups), Oat Flour (1/2 cup), Peanut Butter (1/2 cup), Raw Honey (1/4 cup), Unrefined Coconut Oil (3 Tbsp), Maple Syrup (2 Tbsp), Vanilla Extract (1 tsp), and Ground Cinnamon (1/8 tsp) to large bowl. Stir thoroughly until mixture is well combined.

step 3
Divide the mixture in half and add one half to the prepared dish. Spread the mixture evenly until it covers the bottom then press into place. I like to get my hands slightly damp so I can press it firmly without the mixture sticking to my hands, then I use the back of a spatula to flatten it out.

step 4
Once the bottom layer is complete, place the dish in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, or refrigerator for 20-30 minutes if your dish is not freezer safe, while you prepare the filling.
step 5
For the filling, add the Cacao Nibs (1/2 cup) or powder to a small bowl, followed by the remaining Unrefined Coconut Oil (1 Tbsp), Raw Honey (1 Tbsp), Maple Syrup (1 Tbsp) and Pure Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp). Stir to combine, then add in Peanut Butter (1/2 cup) and continue stirring until a thick, smooth consistency is reached.

step 6
Remove the pan from the freezer and gently spread the filling evenly over the bottom oat layer, then return to freezer for 5-10 minutes, or until the filling has begun to harden.
step 7
Add remaining oat mixture on top of filling and spread evenly, then press down to create the final top layer. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until top layer has hardened.
