Preparation

  1. Lightly grease a 9x9 inch square pan and set aside. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter. Slowly stir in coconut cream, coconut sugar, vanilla and sea salt. Continue until all the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Lower heat and mix in the quick oats and shredded coconut. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  3. Press half of oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside the other half of the portion for the topping.
  4. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler over low heat, stirring frequently until well combined. Pour the chocolate/peanut butter over the oat mixture in the pan, and spread evenly.
  5. Using your hands, crumble the remaining oat mixture evenly over the chocolate/peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before cutting into bars.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to a month.
