Peanut Butter and Walnut Chocolate Bars [Vegan]



Cooking Time




For the Base Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oats of choice
  • 1 cup medjool dates pitted (or regular dates softened with boiling water)
  • 1/3 cup Walnuts
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pinch sea salt flakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla drops
  • 1/2 teaspoon all spice or cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs or vegan chocolate chips

For the Toppings:

  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Tahini or peanut butter to drizzle
  • Pinch sea salt flakes
  • Handful walnuts


  1. Add the oats to a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb. Now add the remaining ingredients apart from the cacao nibs and blitz again until you get a dough.
  2. Mix in the cacao nibs
  3. Line a baking tray with paper then add the dough. Press down to cover the base and into the corners. I dip the back of a spoon in water then use this to press it down
  4. Microwave the chocolate and coconut oil together in short bursts until melted
  5. Now pour over the oats to cover.
  6. Drizzle the peanut butter/tahini over top of the chocolate and swirl around a little.
  7. Sprinkle some sea salt flakes and walnuts on top and place in the fridge to firm up – at least an hour.
  8. Keep in the fridge.
