Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup oats (use certified gluten-free oats if desired)
  • ½ cup almond flour*
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup raw, creamy almond butter (or unsweetened, unsalted sunflower seed butter if nut-free)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup vegan mini chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons for topping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 inch pan with avocado oil or any vegetable oil.
  • Place oats in food processor and blend for one minute until a fine flour forms.
  • Add almond flour, chickpeas, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt and baking powder and blend for 30 seconds. Use a mini spatula to scrape down the edges and blend again for another 30 seconds.
  • Place the batter in your prepared baking pan and mix in ⅓ cup chocolate chips. Spread out to an even layer and top with 2 additional tablespoons of chocolate chips for presentation.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool and set in the pan for 20-30 minutes before slicing. Slice into 9 large (or 12 small) squares. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can serve chilled or warm.

Notes

For best results, I use super fine almond flour from blanched almonds. For a nut-free version you can replace with additional oat flour.
