These are nutritious enough to be served for breakfast, decadent enough to serve for dessert and filling enough to grab for an on-the-go snack! Sprouted oat flour lends the bars a delightfully rich texture, and it is naturally sweet tasting, so we could limit the sugar added to the recipe.
Sprouted oat flour is made from sprouted hulless oats; oats normally grow with an inedible hull that has to be removed, but hulless oats naturally grow without one, meaning we can keep all of the seed’s nutrients (like protein and fibre) intact. Our sprouted oat flour is 100% whole grain, naturally gluten-free and finely milled.
Our favourite way to eat these is slightly warm – stick them in the microwave for a few seconds until the chocolate chips are just starting to melt – but they’re great cold too. You can substitute semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips if you prefer (or whatever you have on hand), but you can find dark chocolate chips at pretty much any grocery store and they add an extra level of decadence. We formulated the recipe with smooth, runny natural peanut butter; if there is salt added, you may want to leave out the salt in the recipe.
