Ingredients (makes an 8x8 inch pan of granola bars)
- 12 pitted dates
- 2/3 cup almond flour
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 and 2/3 cups rolled GF oats
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup almond butter or your desired nut butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped SMASHMALLOW Toasted Vanilla (or flavor of your choice)
In a blender or food processor, combine 12 pitted dates, 2/3 cup almond flour, and 2 tbsp. melted coconut oil until you get a nice paste-like texture.
In a medium bowl combine 1 and 2/3 cups oats, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Once combined, add date mixture to oat mixture and mix. Add 1/3 cup almond butter and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract to bowl and mix again (use hands to combine, the heat from your hands will help bind everything together).
Chop marshmallows up into small pieces. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped marshmallows to the bowl and mix until chocolate chips and marshmallow chunks are evenly dispersed.
Line an 8" x 8" pan with parchment paper. Transfer granola mixture into pan, and spread it flat and evenly disperse with your hands (wet hands with water to prevent the mixture from sticking).
Let pan set for about an hour in refrigerator before cutting. Cut granola bars into desired sizes. Store in fridge to prevent crumbling. Enjoy!
