1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 3/4 cups gluten-free oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cups natural peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1. In a saucepan drop in coconut oil and maple syrup. Bring to a simmer on medium high heat and stir to combine. Lower heat and pour in gluten-free oats, cinnamon, sea salt and vanilla. Stir everything to combine, then remove from heat.
2. Add 2 inches of water to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Place a heatproof glass bowl on top, making sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the simmering water. Add semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter. Stir gently until everything is melted, smooth and combined. Remove from heat.
3. Line a square baking pan with parchment paper (I used 9×9-inch square pan) and pour in half your oat mixture. Press the oats mixture into the bottom using your hands to make a solid firm base. Then, pour in 3/4 of your chocolate peanut butter filling for a smooth even layer. Next, sprinkle with remaining oat mixture and drizzle with remaining chocolate peanut butter mixture.
4. Freeze bars for at least 2 hours, or until solid. Let sit thaw for 10 minutes, then cut into squares.
