Ingredients


Cookie Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour (you can easily make your own by blending up oats until they create a fluffy flour)

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp salt

Peanut Butter Layer:

  • 2/3 cup creamy all natural peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp salt

Chocolate Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cup DF and GF chocolate chips

  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil

  • Optional: flaky salt


Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 by 8 inch pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, combine all of the cookie layer ingredients. Mix together until it is a crumbly slightly sticky texture. Spoon the cookie layer into the pan, and use your hands or a flat utensil to press out the cookie into an even layer.

  3. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cookie layer begins to harden.

  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.

  5. In the meantime, in a large bowl, mix together all of the peanut butter layer ingredients. Once the cookie layer has cooled for at least 10 minutes, poor the peanut butter layer over the cookie layer. Use a spoon to spread it evenly and tap the pan on the counter until the peanut butter layer is even.

  6. Place the whole pan in the fridge for ~30 minutes or in the freezer for ~15 minutes. You want the peanut butter layer to completely harden.

  7. In the meantime, melt the chocolate chips in a large, wide bowl with the coconut oil in 30 second intervals in the microwave. After each 30 seconds, stir the chocolate until it is fully melted. You can also melt it in a double boiler on the stove top. Allow to cool slightly.

  8. Once the cookie and peanut butter layers have hardened together, remove them from the pan and cut into roughly 6 candy bar size pieces.

  9. Prepare a cookie sheet or large plate by covering it with parchment paper.

  10. Carefully dip each bar into the melted chocolate making sure all of the sides are coated. Use a fork to carefully pick up the candy bar, letting the excess chocolate drip off. Carefully place the candy bar onto the pan or plate with parchment paper.

  11. Repeat this process with all of the candy bars. Return to the fridge for roughly 15 minutes or until the chocolate is completely hardened. Drizzle with more melted chocolate if desired and flaky salt. Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve and enjoy!
