Ingredients:

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup gluten-free flour
2 cups of desiccated coconut
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon baking powder
6 scoops Gutright
¼ teaspoon salt

       Wet Ingredients:

      2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water, whisked together, set for 15 mins)
      2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
      ¼ cup unsalted peanut butter
      ¼ cup coconut sugar
      ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
      1/2 cup rice malt syrup

          Add-in Ingredients:

          ⅓ cup cacao nibs
          ⅓ cup walnuts, chopped

              Method:

              1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
              2. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: oats, flour, coconut, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
              3. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients: flax eggs, coconut oil, peanut butter, coconut sugar, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
              4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to fold the ingredients together until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
              5. Pour dough into the prepared baking pan. Using a rubber spatula, spread into an even and tightly packed layer.
              6. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Mine took 25 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the top is a rich golden brown.
              7. Place on a cooling rack for 1 hour, or until completely cool. Lift out and cut into bars.  Enjoy!
