Preparation

  1.  In a small bowl, mix together chia, flaxseed and water. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, add oats, almonds, coconut, protein powder and sea salt. Pulse until almonds and oats are ground into a chunky, flour-like texture.
  3. Add chia/flax mix, vanilla, agave and peanut butter to processor. Pulse until all ingredients are well blended together.
  4. In a lightly greased 13X9 cake pan or baking dish (I used my lasagna dish), add dough and press firmly and evenly into the dish. Chill for 15-20 minutes.
  5. While dish is chilling, melt chocolate and oil in a double boiler (or microwave) and stir well.
  6. Drizzle chocolate over chilled bars and allow to set before cutting into desired size/shape.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
