Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/3 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 1/2 cup vegan protein powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates soaked in water for about 30 minutes
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • water as needed

Instructions

  • Place both kinds of oats, protein powder, cocoa powder, and coconut in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Process until everything is ground into a fine powder.
  • Drain dates well, and add to the bowl, along with pecans, coconut oil, vanilla and salt. Process until dates are broken down and mixture comes together in a dough ball.
  • Add additional water by the teaspoon if dough seems too firm. It should be a bit sticky.
  • Scape the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper or a silpat baking mat.
  • With your hands, or a rolling pin dusted with cocoa powder, shape dough into a large square, about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Wrap the rolled out dough in plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator to firm up, for about 2 hours.
  • Cut into 12 equal pieces and wrap each piece in plastic wrap or parchment paper.
  • Store bars in the refrigerator for 5 days, or up to a month in the freezer.
