Oats, natural peanut butter, pure maple syrup, and dark chocolate are the four ingredients that are used in the production of these healthful yet easy treats. They have a sweet and salty flavour, a rich peanut butter component, an extra chocolatey flavour, and they are free of gluten and butter. Deliciousness can be found in every single bite.

When I think of February, the first thing that comes to me is Super Bowl Sunday, followed by Valentine’s Day, of course. All of this is made much more interesting by the fact that the Olympics are taking place this year. I will be sharing a couple of appetiser dishes with you the following week. These foods will be perfect for watching your favourite winter sport as well as the approaching Super Bowl matchup. This month has quite a few exciting events!

For some reason, whenever I think of the Super Bowl, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is the first thing that comes to my mind. My hometown is Cleveland, therefore I’m sure that’s the reason. Since Ohio is known as the Buckeye State, it is safe to say that we all enjoy chocolate and peannut-flavored treats.

Ingredients

OATMEAL COOKIES
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups almond flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
12 ounces dark chocolate, chopped

sea salt

US Customary – Metric
Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9×13 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
2. To make the cookies: In a mixing bowl, beat together the oats, almond flour, baking soda, salt, coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. Press the dough into the prepared baking dish. Bake 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden.
3. To make the peanut butter mix: In a medium pot, mix 1 cup peanut butter, the maple syrup, and coconut oil. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 2 minutes, then remove from the heat. Pour over the oatmeal cookies. Freeze 30 minutes, until firm.
4. Melt together the chocolate and 1/3 cup peanut butter in the microwave. Let cool 5 minutes and then spread the chocolate over the peanut butter mix. Return to the fridge to set, about 10 minutes, then slice. The chocolate will not be totally set, but slicing is easier this way. Keep in the fridge.
Notes
If the Cookie Dough is Dry: add 1/4 cup additional melted coconut oil to moisten it.

After the peanut butter has been brought to room temperature and has become firm, pour some melted chocolate on top of it to complete the layers. Here is the one piece of advice that I have for you: cut the bars into pieces before the chocolate on top turns too hard.
This will make it much simpler to cut the bars, and it will also prevent the peanutty filling from being squeezed out of the bars completely.
