  • ¾ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup + 3 tablespoons maple syrup, divided room temperature
  • 3 cups (625g) gluten-free oats
  • heaping ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted and cooled
  • sea salt, for sprinkling


  • Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a small saucepan, combine almond butter and ½ cup of the maple syrup over low heat. Stir occasionally until almond butter has melted and mixture has evenly incorporated, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in salt and vanilla extract.
  • Place oats in a large bowl. Pour almond butter mixture over oats and stir until oats have been evenly coated. Transfer ¾ of the oat mixture to prepared pan. Using an extra piece of parchment paper, press mixture down firmly into an even layer.
  • In a small bowl, combine cocoa powder, melted coconut oil, and remaining 3 tablespoons of maple syrup. Whisk until combined. Pour cocoa mixture over oats in baking pan. Use a spatula to spread into an even layer.
  • Take remaining oat mixture and drop crumbled pieces on top. Sprinkle with sea salt. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set.
  • Store almond butter oat bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
