Chewy oat and pecan squares

I've been a little MIA lately, lots of exciting projects with clients, that kept me quite busy! But I am back with a sweet recipe, I am sure you'll forgive me. Chewy oat and pecan squares with chocolate and a good amount of peanut butter.

Chewy oat and pecan squares (12 squares) :

  • 90g rolled oats
  • 30g oat flour
  • 80g peanut butter
  • 50g melted coconut oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 85g chocolate (chunks)
  • 70g honey
  • 40g chopped pecan nuts
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven at 160°C/325°F.

Put parchment paper to a square baking pan.

In a bowl, add coconut oil, honey, peanut butter, vanilla, egg, salt and cinnamon. Whisk until well combined.

In a big bowl, add oats, oat flour, pecan nuts and brown sugar.

Add the coconut oil mix to the big bowl and mix with a spatula until everything is well coated.

Add chocolate and mix a bit more.

Add the batter to the pan and push it down with the spatula.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Let it cool for a few minutes before cutting it into squares.

Cool completely before digging in.
