  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Optional chocolate drizzle

  • 3 oz dark chocolate


  • Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  • In a standing mixer, blend all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, until you have a smooth batter.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  • Line an 8" x 11" baking pan with parchment paper and transfer the dough to the pan. Spread it out into an even layer.
  • Bake for ~15 minutes, until the tops of the bars are firm and a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean. Then remove the bars from the oven.
  • If adding the optional chocolate drizzle, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe dish on high heat in 30 second intervals, until melted. Then drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the baked bars.
  • Let the bars cool, then cut them into pieces and enjoy!
