Equipment

  • Food processor

Ingredients

  • cups gluten free rolled oats (250g)
  • cup coconut oil (125g)
  • ½ cup coconut or date sugar (60g)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (75g)

Optional

  • 2 scoops your favourite protein powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F/205°C. Grease a deep ovenproof dish or tin (11"x7") with coconut oil.
  • Add oats, coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup and protein powder (if using) to a food processor and pulse until mixture is combined and comes away from the side of the jug.
  • Add in chocolate chips and pulse briefly to mix in.
  • Pour oatmeal mixture into your ovenproof dish, and use the back of a large wooden spoon to press it down.
  • Using a flat knife, score the mixture into 12 equal pieces.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until just turning golden.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately cut bars into 12 pieces along your scored lines.
  • Allow the bars to rest in their dish for 15 minutes in order to firm up (they will be very soft when they come out of the oven).
  • Turn onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
