Luckily, when it comes to these peanut butter oatmeal bars, the process couldn’t be much simpler. In fact, there are just a few super-simple steps!
First begin by blending the oats in a food processor until you achieve a flour-like consistency. If you like a bit of ‘bite,’ then you can leave 1/3-1/2 of the oats whole.
Then combine the rest of the peanut butter layer ingredients in the blender and blitz again to combine well.
Transfer the mixture to a parchment paper-lined tray or silicone mold and spread to create a thin, even layer. Then place in the fridge or freezer while preparing the chocolate topping.
To prepare the chocolate topping, melt the chocolate bar with the coconut oil over a double boiler or in the microwave at 15-20 second spurts. Mix them well.
Pour the chocolate over the chilled peanut butter layer and then place it back in the fridge/freezer until the chocolate is set.
Once set, you can remove the bar from the fridge and slice into squares/bar
