For the cookie dough layer:

  • 1 cup almond butter (can replace with your favorite nut butter)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • tsp salt
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips

For the chocolate layer:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¾ tsp coconut oil
  • Optional: sea salt, to sprinkle on top


To make the cookie dough layer:

  • Combine the almond butter, maple syrup, almond flour, vanilla and salt in a bowl and stir until fully combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Line a 9x5 loaf tin with parchment paper and press the dough into the bottom of the tin. (Make sure it's an even layer.)

To make the chocolate layer:

  • Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat them together in the microwave at 30 second intervals until they're completely. (Stir in between each interval. Mine took about 1 minutes 15 seconds.)
  • Pour the chocolate over your cookie dough and spread it out evenly. (Sprinkle with some sea salt on top if you're using it.)
  • Place the entire tin in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set. Once it's set, cut the bars into squares and serve!
