Chocolate coconut cashew bars made with simple, clean ingredients for a sweet treat that you can feel good about eating. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

* 1 cup old fashioned oats
* ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
* 1½ cups raw unsalted cashews
* ¼ cup + 2-3 tsp liquid sweetener (honey, brown rice syrup, maple syrup)
* Pinch of sea salt

**Chocolate Coconut Topping**
* ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
* ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* ¼ cup liquid sweetener (honey, brown rice syrup, maple syrup)
* 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
* A few pinches of sea salt

  1. Add cashews to food processor and blend for 2-3 minutes, stopping to scrap down the sides every 30 seconds or so. You want to process the nuts until they start to form somewhat of a paste.
  2. Add oats, coconut oil, liquid sweetener and sea salt and blend for another 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed, until ingredients form a dough (refer to picture).
  3. Line a loaf pan or 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly coat with non-stick spray. Empty dough into pan and press down firmly, spreading evenly to all edges. It's helpful to use the bottom of a measuring cup to really compact dough.
  4. Chocolate topping: In a large glass measuring cup or bowl, whisk together liquid sweetener, melted coconut oil and cocoa powder until smooth and well-combined. Pour over dough, spreading evenly with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and sea salt.
  5. Freeze for 1 hour or refrigerate for 3 hours before slicing. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

To ensure bars are gluten free (if necessary), use a certified GF brand of oats (Bob's Red Mill)
To make vegan, use either pure maple syrup or brown rice syrup as sweetener
