Notes

  • Be sure to buy dairy-free chocolate chips of you need the recipe to be 100% dairy-free.
  • For a more cake-like texture, swap the coconut flour with 1 cup of oat flour and eliminate the almond milk.  I love this version for breakfast.
  • Be sure to store these bars in the refrigerator.  They are best when eaten cold.
  • Experiment with different stir-ins.  Dried cranberries, shredded coconut, pecans, and walnuts would all be delicious!
