I’ve been on the search for a dessert to bring on the go to friends houses and family get togethers. These bars are easy to make, easy to cut, and easy to transport! And the best part- they are really tasty too! 🙂
2 Cups Oats
1 Cup raw almonds
1 Cup packed dates
1/4 Cup melted coconut oil
1/2 Tsp Almond extract
Preheat oven to 350oF.
Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper.
In a food processor, process almonds, oats, almond extract, and salt until lightly ground. Add in the dates and pulse until crumbly. Add in the melted coconut oil and process until the mixture comes together.
Remove oat mixture from the processor. Set aside 3/4 cup for topping and then press the remaining into the bottom of the pan.
Bake the crust for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes take it out of the oven and let it set for 15 minutes. While it is setting make the fudge.
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup date butter
1 tsp coconut oil melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt
Place all of the ingredients together in a high speed blender for 30 seconds on high.
Spread the fudge over the cooked oat bar and sprinkle the remaining oat topping all over the top. Put it back in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Take pan out of the oven and place it on the counter to cool for 30 minutes.
These bars really hit the spot when you are craving a sweet treat!
