These are not only super good for you, but it'll feel like you're eating a decadent dessert! Love having one in the morning after working out.
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup Nopalina flax seed plus fiber OR regular flax seed
  • ¼ cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 2-4 TB. almond flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 TB. coconut oil, at room temp
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips (dark if you prefer!)
Instructions
  1. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or foil. Grease lightly with a bit of coconut oil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together oats, flax seed, cocoa, almond flour, and salt.
  3. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, stir together honey, peanut butter, and coconut oil. Wait until melted, then bring to a boil. Once it starts boiling, cook for 1 minute, constantly stirring so it doesn't burn.
  4. Pour liquid mixture over dry mixture and stir until fully combined. Let rest for 1 minute, then stir in mini chocolate chips. Most will melt, so keep some aside for top.
  5. Press mixture down in pan. Let cool for a couple minutes, then sprinkle with more mini chocolate chips if desired.
  6. Refrigerate for 2 hours, then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container at either room temp or in the fridge. Enjoy!
