  • ¾ cup peanut butter*, creamy & salted.⁠
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup⁠
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil ⁠
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar⁠
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract⁠
  • 1 cup - Let's Do Organic Shredded Coconut⁠
  • 2 ½ cups - rolled oats⁠⁠
  • 1 ¼ cup medjool dates, pitted (~14-16 dates)⁠
  • 1, 3oz bar chocolate, chopped⁠
  • 1 tsp coconut oil⁠
  1. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper and set aside. Add all wet ingredients to a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
  2. Once simmering, cook for 1 minute, scraping along the bottom of the pan to ensure mixture does not burn.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in dry ingredients.
  4. Add ⅔ of the PB Oat mixture to the parchment-lined 8x8 pan and press in a single layer. Move to the freezer to set while making filling and set aside remaining ⅓ of mixture to use later.
  5. Start on your filling. Add chopped chocolate bar and coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl and cook in 30 second increments until melted (~90 seconds total).⁠
  6. To a food processor, add 1 ¼ cup pitted medjool dates and process ~1 minute, or until dates form into a ball.
  7. Add your melted chocolate to the blended dates and process until smooth.
  8. Remove 8x8 pan from freezer and top with chocolate date filling. Spread in a single smooth layer.
  9. Top with remaining ⅓ cup of PB Oat mixture, using your fingers to firmly press mixture into chocolate date filling.
  10. Move to freezer to harden, about 30-45 minutes.⁠
  11. Cut into squares and store in the fridge for up to a week, or in an airtight container in the freezer for longer term storage (~1 month).⁠
    *if using unsalted peanut butter, add a pinch of salt to the dry ingredients.
