For the chocolate topping:

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dairy-free if necessary)
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Sea salt, for topping bars

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper going both ways.
  2. Place oat flour, protein powder, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine.
  3. Add maple syrup, cashew butter, almond milk, and vanilla. Stir until you have a ball of "dough." Using wet hands, press evenly into prepared baking dish.

  5. Freeze for at least 2 hours before slicing into 9 bars. Top with a sprinkle of salt and devour!

Notes

*You can make your own oat flour by grinding old-fashioned oats in the Nutribullet or a high-speed blender.
