Ingredients
 
 

Chocolate hazelnut butter

  • 2 ounces hazelnut butter or other nut butter
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate

Bars

Instructions
 

Chocolate hazelnut butter

  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler.
  • Remove from heat and mix with the hazelnut butter until well combined.
  • Let it cool at room temperature for a few minutes and place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Once it is firm, remove from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature, the hazelnut butter will become a little bit softer and easier to work with.

Bars

  • Add the rolled oats, oat flour and protein powder to the bowl of a food processor. Process for 3-5 seconds, or until the oats are roughly chopped. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • In a small pan, combine the brown rice syrup, coconut sugar, and almond butter. Heat on medium heat until everything is well combined and the sugar is dissolved.
  • Pour the brown rice mixture over the oats and protein powder. Stir in the vanilla extract and mix using a wooden spoon or spatula until you get a soft and sticky dough.
  • Add the rice crisps and mix until they are well incorporated. Do not overmix to keep the crunchy texture.
  • Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it using a pastry roller. You want to have a really thin layer of dough.
  • Cut the dough into 12 rectangles of about 4x2 inches.
  • Using your hands, form a small log with the chocolate hazelnut butter (about 1 tbsp). Be careful, if your kitchen is too hot, the hazelnut butter will be really soft. I recommend you keep the chocolate hazelnut butter in your refrigerator if it is the case.
  • Add the chocolate hazelnut butter log on top of a rectangle, leaving about 1/4-inch on the sides. Top with another rectangle of dough.
  • Carefully press the sides to close bar. Repeat with the next 5 bars.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • The bars will keep at room temperature, or in the refrigerator if it's too hot outside.
