Description

Seven layer bars, magic bars, hello dollys, whatever you call this little treat, these bars are next level amazing!  They're gooey and ooey with a thick toasted oat cookie base and filled with chocolate and coconut.  With a few simple swaps, these 7 layer bars are made vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 4 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed coconut milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.  In a bowl, mix together the oat flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla until a sticky dough forms.  You should be able to pick up clumps with your fingers.
  2. Press the oat mixture into an 8 X 8 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Pack it in tight using the bottom of a measuring cup or the back of a spoon.
  3. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over top followed by the dark chocolate chips.
  4. Next add the chopped pecans and then the shredded coconut.  Finally pour the sweetened condensed coconut milk over top, making sure it's evenly dispersed.
  5. Bake in the oven for 25 - 28 minutes until the coconut on top turns a golden brown and the edges begin to pull away from the sides.  Let the pan cool to room temperature when done.
  6. Place the pan in the fridge to set (at least an hour).  Once set, use a sharp knife to slice into 16 square bars and enjoy!  Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
