Preparation

  1. Prepare a loaf tin with baking paper on all sides.
  2. Make the base: Put oats in food processor and process into flour. Add prunes and pulse until a coarse texture. Then add coconut oil, cocoa powder and salt. Pulse until well mixed. Empty the mixture into the lined loaf pan, and use your hands to pack mixture down firmly. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out the mixture (if desired).
  3. Transfer to freezer while you prepare remaining layers.
  4. Prepare the pecan praline filling: Add the pecans to a food processor, alongside coconut oil. Process until it forms a smooth nut butter. Add prunes, vanilla extract and salt. Process until the mixture is blended but still has some small pieces of nuts visible
  5. Remove loaf pan from freezer, and smooth filling over the base. Use the back of a spoon or spatula to press the filling down firmly. Place back in the freezer
  6. Melt the chocolate topping: In a bowl over boiling water or the microwave, melt chopped chocolate and coconut oil. Whisk together until smooth. Pour on top of the pecan filling. Chop the pecans ad sprinkle on top of the melted chocolate. Refrigerate until chocolate layer has set (approximately 2-3 hours). Remove and slice into 7 large bars, or 14 smaller bars.
