Ingredients

  • CHOCOLATE BASE:
  • 5 T. coconut oil melted
  • 4 T. cocoa powder
  • 2 t. maple syrup
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • NOUGAT LAYER:
  • 4 T. coconut oil melted
  • 2 T. milk of your choice
  • 3 T. maple syrup
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. + 2 T. oats ground into flour (use almond flour if grain-free)
  • 1/8 t. sea salt
  • CARAMEL:
  • 8 dates Medjool
  • 2 T. peanut butter I used salted so I didn't add any extra salt
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 t. water
  • 1/4 c. peanuts

Instructions

  • Mix together the ingredients for the chocolate base until well combined.
  • Pour the mix into a small baking dish (I used 7 x 5 inch Pyrex dish).
  • Put the dish into the freezer until hard (about 10-15 minutes).
  • Mix together the ingredients for the nougat layer until well combined.
  • Pour the nougat layer onto the hardened chocolate base.
  • Set in the freezer until the nougat layer is solid (1-2 hours).
  • Process the ingredients for the caramel layer until well combined.
  • Spread the caramel mix atop the hardened nougat layer (wet and use your hands for this, as it is very thick.
  • Press the peanuts into the caramel, scattering them across the entire layer.
  • Freeze again until set (about an hour).
  • Cut into 12 equal bars and enjoy!
