Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal certified gluten free if you have allergies or issues
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia seed organic
  • 1/3 cup date paste
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract I make mine at home
  • 2 Tablespoon almond butter or nut butter of your choice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder I use organic aluminum free
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips I bought dairy and GMO free brand Good Life from our local co-op
  • Chocolate Drizzle
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place oatmeal, pecans, and chia seed in food processor. Process into a flour. Pour into a large bowl and mix in date paste, honey, vanilla extract, eggs, almond butter, baking powder, and salt until combined. Add chocolate chips.
  • Press into 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula to press it down into pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully, lift up on parchment paper and remove bars from pan to cool. Use a pizza cutter to cut into bars.
  • To make Chocolate Drizzle
  • Melt chocolate chips over a double broiler or in the microwave. Melt on low heat just until they start to look shiny. Take off heat and stir. If not completely melted, put back on heat for just a short time. If you get it too hot, chocolate will seize. Stir in coconut oil. The warmth from the chocolate will melt it. Drizzle over bars or eat it with a spoon... both ways tasted great!
