Layered Oat And Chocolate Bars Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 5 minutes
1 cup dairy-free butter
½ cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick-cooking oats
¼ cup raw shelled hempseed
2 tablespoons protein powder
1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter
1Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper and come up about 3 inches on opposite sides. This will act as a handle to remove the squares from the dish.
2In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the sugar and vanilla. Mix the in oats and cook for 2 minutes.
3Add the hempseed and protein powder and mix well. Transfer half of the mixture into the prepared dish and press firmly and evenly into all edges and corners.
4Place the chocolate and peanut butter in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until chocolate is melted and all is well combined.
5Pour over the bottom layer in the prepared dish and smooth evenly all over the top. Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the top as evenly as possible and lightly press into the chocolate.
6Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
7Grab the “handles” of the parchment paper and lift out of the dish. Place on a cutting sheet and slice into sixteen squares.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
