Gluten Free Coconut Oat Date Bars

These bars are quick and simple to make without any baking required. They are free of gluten and refined sugars.

Ingredients

1/2 cup pecans
6 coconut date rolls
1/2 cup gluten free oat flour (You can buy oat flour at the store but I ground regular oats in my food processor. I like the coarse consistency better than the fine flour.)
1 Tbs brown rice syrup
1 tsp coconut sugar
pinch of salt
3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips


Instructions

In a food processor, blend pecans until crumbly. Set aside in a large bowl.


 Next, add coconut date rolls to food processor and blend until a dough forms. 



Add dough to bowl with ground pecans and add all remaining ingredients. This gets messy but fun. Mix well to combine with your hands.

Line a 9x9 inch pan with wax paper and add the mixture. 
Use your hands to press it down evenly throughout the pan. 
Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes. 
Remove from pan and slice for desired size of bars. 


I like to store these bars in the fridge. The cooler temperature keeps them firm and gives the chocolate a nice crunch. These bars are great for breakfast, a snack, or an even sweeter treat crumbled over yogurt or ice cream.

If you feel like sharing you can wrap them up and give them to your friends. I took some over to my friend Wallace's house tonight.
