Almond Pulp Coffee Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars a.k.a. Chocolate Chip Cookie… In Bar Form!

Wondering what to do with your leftover almond pulp?! I gotcha! These vegan + gluten-free ALMOND PULP COFFEE CHOCOLATE CHIP OATMEAL RAW BARS are where it’s at!

They’re crumbly on the outside, full of chocolate deliciousness, soft + chewy on the inside, bursting with coffee flavour, so nutritious & so yummy, they’ll remind you of a legit chocolate chip cookie. They’re vegan, refined sugar, gluten + egg free!

Whenever I make bars, I like to slice them & then individually wrap them up so they’re ready to take on the go with me if I want them pre or post workout or if I know I’ll be on the go! Bonus: it also helps keep them fresher longer!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup almond pulp or almond flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tbsp. ground coffee / espresso
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut flower syrup
  • 1.5 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate mini chips

TO MAKE:

  • If you’re not using almond pulp, make your almond flour by grinding raw unsalted almonds in your blender or food processor until a flour-like consistency is obtained OR use store-bought almond flour.
  • Add all ingredients except the chocolate chips to a large mixing bowl & mix with a spatula until combined.

  • Slice into bars of your desired size, wrap them individually in wax paper or aluminum foil & store in the fridge (or freezer if you want them to last longer).
  • ENJOY!
    • P.S. You can also bake them if you prefer: Set the oven to 350F & bake for about 25-35 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven & let cool completely before slicing.
