Chocolate Coconut Chia and Oat Bars (no-bake, vegan, GF)
Into the Vita-Mix went:
*2 Tbsp chia seeds that I ground well first
*Then I added 4 Tbsp of shredded coconut (mine was sweetened because that’s all I had)
*1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
*1 Tbsp Agave
*2 Squares of the TJ’s Dark Chocolate 73% bar(Or, 2 Tbsp Choco Chips/Carob Chips/Cocao Nibs would all work)
*2 Tbsp Oats (afterthought because they were really soupy so I needed something to dry them up)
*Blended til everything’s incorporated
Put into a freezer container
And here’s the up close drool shot
And after sitting in the freezer a few hours, here ya go, squared off and dusted with powdered sugar. Totally omittable but makes it look pretty. A sifter would be nice, but just a massive sugar dump worked perfectly well ’round here.
I also find that rolling things into balls is a total PITA (playing with balls is always a PITA to me, but that’s another topic for another blog). So squares work in this casa. It all tastes the same, right!
And then I jazzed up Scott’s world by making a shallow grave in a mound of banana softserve and burying a Chocolate Coconut Treat
He loved it.
Have you ever tried or do you like chia seeds?
