Kitchen Tools
  • 9 x 9 inch square baking pan
  • Parchment Paper
  • Food Processor
  • Bowls
  • Spatulas
Peanut Base
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup pitted dated
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
Chocolate Topping
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter


    1. Line a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.  
    2. In a food processor, process the oats and dates until you have a crumbly mixture. Add the peanut butter and peanuts and continue pulsing until the mixture holds together when shaped by your hands. Press and smooth the mixture into an even layer in the prepared baking pan and set aside.

    4. Place the bars into the refrigerator for 2 hours or until set. (You can also place the bars in the freezer to shorten to set time.)
    5. When set, cut into squares. Keep refrigerated or store in the freezer.
