Ingredients (16 bars):
Each bar is approximately 50 grams and 220 calories

  • 200 gr rolled oats (gluten free if needed)
  • 200 gr of your favorite nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnuts etc.)
  • 50 gr of your favorite berries (cranberries, goji berries etc.)
  • 30 gr raisins
  • 40 gr grated coconut flakes
  • Salt and cinnamon powder
  • 40 gr melted coconut oil
  • 60 gr tahini
  • 70 gr maple syrup
  • Vanilla powder or extract
  • 50 ml almond milk

For the chocolate topping:

  • 40 gr melted coconut oil
  • 90 gr maple syrup
  • Vanilla powder or extract
  • 50 gr cocoa powder
  • 50 ml almond milk
  • Salt and cayenne pepper


  1. Put the oat flakes, nuts, berries and raisins in a blender (or food processor) and roughly break them down into a coarse powder.
  2. Transfer the mixture in a large bowl. Add 40 grams of grated coconut, a pinch of salt, few pinches of cinnamon powder and mix well.
  3. In a bowl (or large cup) add 40 grams of melted coconut oil, 60 grams of tahini, 70 grams of maple syrup, 1 pinch of vanilla powder and 50 ml of almond milk. Mix well to combine and transfer the mixture to the large bowl with our oats, nuts, berries etc.
  4. Use a spatula or spoon to combine both mixtures.
  5. Transfer the whole mixture in a 30x20 cm baking pan with bakery/parchment paper and press it gently with a spoon so it becomes evenly flat.
    Let it rest while we make a chocolate topping for our bars!

  7. Add 2 pinches of vanilla powder, 1 pinch of salt, 1 tiny pinch of cayenne pepper, 50 grams of cocoa powder and stir until everything is well blended. Our chocolate is ready!
  8. Pour the chocolate over the bars and use a spatula to spread it into an even layer.
  9. Refrigerate for 2 hours, until the bars are firm and the chocolate is set.
  10. Use a large knife to cut the bars into 16 pieces.
  11. Keep them in the fridge and enjoy them whenever you like 🙂
