Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Stir the peanut butter, coconut oil and maple syrup together in a bowl until smooth, creamy and completely combined. 
  3. Add the wet mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  4. Line a 7-8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper so the ends stick out over the edges of the pan.
  5. Add the mixture and firmly press it down into the pan. Take a few minutes to really press it in, this will help them stick together better.
  6. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to set.
  7. Lift the bars out of the pan and cut into 10 bars. Store in the freezer in a sealed container or freezer-safe bag for up to 3 months.

Notes

These bars need to be kept in the freezer or fridge to hold together properly. FYI, they taste amazing pulled straight from the freezer!

The salt is optional but recommended. I love the sweetness from the maple syrup combined with the sea salt. Tastes amazing!
