Lucky for us, you can whip together this almond chocolate layer bar with chewy oats, creamy chocolate, rich almond butter, and sweet maple syrup in a matter of minutes. The hardest part will be not eating all the dough and chocolate filling before you bake it because it’s damn delicious! (And totally safe to eat raw, btw. SCORE!!)

First thing you’ll do is make the cookie base. Literally throw all the ingredients together in a bowl, stir ‘em up, press them into a lined loaf pan, and bake until slightly golden and firm. Next, it’s time to mix up that smooth and creamy chocolate center. If anything was ever going to temp you to stick your face in the bowl and lick it clean, it’s this!

So, whatever’s not stuck to your face, spread that on the cooled cookie base and crumble the crumb topping mix (also ridiculously easy to make and takes all of 2.7 minutes) on top. Be sure to press the crumb topping down into the chocolate layer a bit so that it’ll stick and not just fall off when you slice these babies up.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a 9”x5” loaf pan with aluminum foil, allowing some to extend past the rim of the pan.
  2. For the base: in a large bowl, whisk together the oats, coconut, almond flour, and salt.
  3. Add in the almond butter and maple syrup, stirring well to combine.
  4. Firmly press the dough into the prepared loaf pan using your hands or the bottom of a flat cup.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 min.
  6. Allow the base to cool completely in the pan.
  7. For the chocolate layer: preheat your oven to 350 again if you turned it off while the base was cooling. In a medium bowl, mix together the almond butter, maple syrup, water, and vanilla extract.
  8. Add the cocoa powder and salt. Mix together until well combined. Set aside.
  9. For the crumb topping: in a separate bowl, mix together the oats, coconut, arrowroot, and salt.
  10. Add in the almond butter and maple syrup. Mix together until the mixture forms large crumbs. I find using a fork or my hands works best.
  11. Evenly spread the chocolate layer over the cooled base layer.
  12. Crumble the crumb topping over the chocolate layer. Lightly press the crumbs into the chocolate layer to make sure they stick.
  13. Sprinkle the chocolate/butterscotch chips over the crumb layer.
  14. Bake for 11-13 min. or until the top turns golden brown and the edges are firm to the touch.
  15. Allow the bars to cool in the pan and then remove them by lifting out the aluminum foil.
  16. Slice into square and enjoy your decadently delicious almond chocolate layer bars!

  1. Hi! Would it be possible to replace some of the almond butter with tahini? Just wondering what that might be like!
    1. Hi Katie! You sure could use any nut or seed butter in place of the almond butter! Let me know how it is if you try it with tahini! :)
  2. This is showing the wrong recipe!
