Ingredients

Cookie Dough Bars

Chocolate Topping

  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon natural unsalted, creamy almond butter

Instructions

  1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside. Clear some space in the freezer for this pan—you will need it later.
  2. Make the Cookie Dough Bars: Add oat flour, maple syrup, oil and vanilla to a medium bowl. Using a spoon, stir until thickened and well incorporated. If needed, use a rubber spatula to fold together into a cohesive dough. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  3. Pour cookie dough into the prepared baking pan. Using a rubber spatula, smooth into an even layer. Set aside.
  4. Prepare Chocolate Topping using a double-boiler or do the following. Add Chocolate Topping ingredients to a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20-second increments until softened and melted. Stir in between heating until smooth and well mixed. Pour topping over cookie dough bars. Using a clean rubber spatula, smooth into an even layer. Optionally, make swirls on top for fun!
  5. Transfer pan to freezer. Chill for 20-30 minutes, or until firm. Remove from freezer and slice into 16 bars. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Notes

– *If you’d like to make these a few days in advance, leave out 1 to 2 tablespoons of oat flour. This will keep the dough softer for the later days—however, it may be too soft on the first day.
– Best if enjoyed the first day; Day 2 and on, the bars will become drier. Day 2 and forward, to soften, heat in 10-second increments in the microwave until just warm. The topping will become melty.
– Store for 1 week in an airtight container at room temperature. If stored in the refrigerator, bars will harden and become dry much faster.
