Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

peanut butter chocolate chip oat bars

There's no denying that these bars are an indulgent treat but I like to make them every now and then as they're a handy, high energy snack which is perfect for workout (or simply busy!) days. What's more, they're quick and easy to prepare too.

Three great health benefits: boosts mood, energy boosting, promotes healthy skin

Makes 16 bars
Keep refrigerated

Ingredients:
For the bars:
4 cups gluten free oats
1 & 1/3 cups smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
Generous 1/4 cup coconut oil (liquid)
1/3 cup cacao nibs

For the chocolate drizzle:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cacao powder

Method:
1) Line an 8 inch square cake tin with greaseproof paper.
2) Whizz all of the ingredients, with the exception of the cacao nibs, in a food processor to combine.
3) Stir in the cacao nibs.
4) Press the oaty mixture into the prepared cake tin and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight to set.
5) To make the chocolate topping, warm together the coconut oil, maple syrup and cacao powder in a small saucepan over a low medium heat on the hob. Set aside to thicken slightly before drizzling over the oaty mixture. Refrigerate to set before cutting into bars.
