Recipe

Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten free old fashioned oats

  • 1 cup raw walnuts 

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup 

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil 

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 

  • 1/4-1/3 cup mini chocolate chips 

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Add oats, walnuts, and sea salt to a food processor. Pulse for 15-20 seconds, until a meal forms. 

  2. While processor is still on, pour in maple syrup and avocado oil. Process until a dough forms. This should take 1 minute or less. 

  3. Spread dough onto an 8x8 square baking dish lined with parchment paper. Be patient- it will take a minute to spread the dough evenly. Tip: keep an inch or 2 of the baking dish unfilled on all 4 sides so that the bars are not spread too thin. I use a small spatula to shape the dough into a square about 1/2 inch thick.

  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 11-12 minutes, then immediately lift parchment  paper up to remove bars from the baking dish. Allow to cool, then slice into 12 squares.
