These bars are refined sugar-free, nut free and done in under 15 minutes, making them perfect for back to school! Beware, they are addictive!
Cuisine: vegan, vegetarian
1 1/2cupsrolled oats
3/4cupunsweetened shredded coconut
1/4cupground flax seeds or chia seeds
1/4cupsunflower seeds, raw
1/4teaspoonfine grain sea salt
1/4cupwater, as needed
Unsweetened or dark chocolate for drizzling(optional)
Line a square 9" glass dish with parchment paper.
In a food processor, process the dates a few seconds to chop them up.
Add all the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate and water. Process until you get a crumbly mixture. Add the water and continue to process until the mixture sticks together when pressed. It may form a ball in the food processor.
Transfer to the prepared glass dish. Press evenly to the bottom of the dish.
Drizzle with melted unsweetened or dark chocolate.
Place in the refrigerator or freezer until the chocolate hardens. Cut into 8 bars. Enjoy!
I like to keep these in the freezer. They stay soft and can be eaten straight from the freezer.
