Almond Coconut Oat Bars (Gluten Free, Vegan)
Makes: 9 bars
1 cup almond flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
3/4 cup coconut sugar (I use Madhava)
1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut + 2 tbs for topping
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup almond butter
3/8 cup coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8" or 8 x 8 pan or dish, with parchment paper--set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add dry ingredients (except for your 2 tbs extra coconut), stir until combined.
In another bowl, add wet ingredients one at a time, whisking until smooth.
Combine your wet & dry ingredients, and stir until evenly combined.
Using a spatula or your fingers, press your mixture into your parchment lined pan until uniform. Sprinkle with 2 tbs coconut.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until all is firm and turning golden.
Let cool completely before slicing & serving, and store remainder in an air tight container in fridge.
