Ingredients

Bars

  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Filling

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with tin foil and lightly grease. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix in coconut oil, peanut butter, and vanilla until mixture is crumbly.
  • Press 2/3 of crumbs into prepared pan and reserve remaining crumbs. Bake crust at 375F 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Set aside.
  • Make the filling: Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, then whisk in sugar. Bring mixture to a low boil until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in baking soda and salt.
  • Spread caramel layer evenly over pre-baked crust and top with chocolate chips and remaining crumb topping.
  • Bake bars at 375F 20-25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire cooling rack before slicing into squares. Enjoy!
