Ingredients
  

For the Bars

  • 180 g (2 cups) oat flour
  • 255 g (1cup) peanut butter
  • 110 g (⅓ cup) Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 30 g (½ cup) crushed pretzels

For the chocolate ganache

  • 40 g (⅓ cup) cocoa powder
  • 70 g (⅓ cup) melted coconut oil
  • 110 g (⅓ cup) Maple Syrup

Instructions
 

  • In a medium-sized bowl add oat flour, peanut butter, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and crushed pretzels. Using your hands or a spatula mix and knead the dough until all the ingredients are incorporated and the dough comes together.
  • Once all the ingredients are well mixed together transfer the dough to a parchment paper-lined loaf pan. If you don’t have a loaf pan you can use a similarly shaped glass storage container or an 8 by 8-inch square baking pan. sing your hands or a measuring cup push the dough in the pan.

To make the chocolate ganache

  • In a medium bowl add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and cocoa powder. Using a hand whisk, mix the ingredients together. The chocolate ganache will thicken as you whisk it, but that is ok and that is how it should be.
  • Pour the chocolate ganache on top of the slab, and then use a spatula or a spoon to spread it evenly across the dough. Optionally you can decorate it with pretzels.
  • Put the slab back in your loaf pan or a  storage container if that’s what you are using. And pop it in the freezer just for a few minutes. This chocolate ganache doesn’t need much time to harden up.
  • Once it is chilled, take it out of the freezer, slice it into bars and enjoy.
