Ingredients

  • Bottom layer

  • ½

    cup honey

  • ½

    cup peanut butter

  • cups brown rice cereal

  • ¼

    cup flax seed meal

  • ½

    cup oats

  • 1

    tablespoon dark cocoa powder

  • Middle layer

  • ¾

    cup coconut butter

  • ¾

    cup peanut butter

  • Top layer

  • 1

    1 /2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

In a sauce pan, at low heat, combine sugar, honey and peanut butter. Heat for about 1-2 minutes stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and add cereal, oats, dark cocoa powder and flax seed meal. Press into a square baking pan lined with foil like in the picture. Blend the coconut chips (or shredded coconut) in a food processor until it resembles butter consistency (you probably need about 2 cups of the chips to make 3/4 cup coconut butter that is what I used). Transfer to a bowl and add the peanut butter. Combine. Pour mixture over the dark chocolate crispy part and place in the refrigerator until it sets, about 1 hour or so. Melt chocolate in a medium bowl over a saucepan over boiling water (double boiler method). Stir until smooth and spread melted chocolate over the coconut butter mixture. Let cool to set chocolate. I normally put it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. Lift out of the pan, remove foil and cut into small bars or squares. Store in the refrigerator.
