Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Lunch

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup peanuts
  • 1 cup medjool dates

Instructions

  • Line a 9x9 baking tin with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Toast your oats and peanuts in a 176 C oven for around 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  • Place the medjool dates in a food processor and process for about 1 minute to form a "dough" like consistency.
  • Place the oats, peanuts and dates in a large bowl and mix until combined. 
  • In a small saucepan and over low heat, warm the maple syrup, coconut oil and peanut butter. Stir and pour over the oat mixture, and then mix until combined.
  • Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking tin, spread into an even layer, pressing down with a spatula or a spoon until it's tightly packed and smooth.
  • Cover with cling film, place in the freezer to firm up for around 15 minutes. Once firm, lift bars out of the baking tin and slice into 8-10 bars. Enjoy!
