Yield: 8 bars

Ingredients:

Bottom Layer:
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashew, or walnuts, or almonds
  • 6 medjool dates (I soaked mine with hot water for 5 mins, because they were hard)
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 2 scoops Whey Protein Powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
  • 2-3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
Middle Layer:
  • 1/2 cup homemade or organic creamy peanut butter(no sugar added), or any other butter
  • 1 scoop whey Protein Powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar free maple syrup (or 1 tbsp honey)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil ( add more 1 tbsp if using honey)
Top Layer:
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

Optional (Crushed roasted peanuts)

Direction:
  1. Grease a 9 x 5 inch Loaf pan, line the bottom with parchment or wax paper and set aside.
  2.  Add soaked dates, soaked cashews in a food processor, and pulse a few times. Then, add whey protein powder, oats, sugar free maple syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, and unsweetened almond milk. Transfer the chocolate oat dough into the lined loaf pan, and press out into an even layer (use non-stick cooking oil spray if its sticking in your hands). Refrigerate while preparing the middle layer.
  3. In a medium bowl, add peanut butter (microwave 20-30 sec if it's thick, until it's runny). After add in sugar free maple syrup , whey protein powder, and coconut oil. Mix well until it becomes a soft dough. Bring it over the oat chocolate dough, and press it out evenly. 
  4. Microwave chocolate chips for 30 seconds, stir, and microwave it for another 30 seconds. Add coconut oil and milk and stir well. Pour it on the top and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours or freeze 20 to 30 minutes, until it firms up. Top it with crushed roasted unsalted peanuts and slice into bars.
Enjoy!
