Taking a bite into one of these bars is like going on vacation to a beautiful remote island. You just get lost in the taste and mouthfeel of silky cashews, velvety chocolate and chewy coconut flakes

Ingredients

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

CHOCOLATE COCONUT TOPPING:
¼ cup liquid sweetener (honey, brown rice syrup, maple syrup)
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
A few pinches of sea salt

Instructions

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.

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.

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.

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.

Freeze for 1 hour or refrigerate for 3 hours before slicing. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
