These Raw Chocolate Oat Bars are my new obsession! Perfectly sweet and totally satisfying to serve as dessert, yet made with enough wholesome goodness to qualify as a snack. Plus, no baking, which means these are great for summer.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Line an 8x8-inch glass dish or pan with Nonstick Cooking Spray (to taste) .
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.
Step 8
Remove and cut into squares.
