  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 can chickpeas (drain and rinse but reserve the liquid)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp liquid from chickpea can


Place the oats in a food processor and process for about 30 seconds. 
Add chickpeas and pulse several times. 
Add remaining ingredients and process until well mixed and a ball starts to form. 
Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper. 
Scoop the dough into the middle of the pan. It will be pretty sticky. 
Get your fingers wet and then work quickly to spread the dough to the corners of the pan. You may need to re-wet them a couple of times. Leave about an inch open on one side of the pan. 
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes. 
Let cool, cut into 8 bars, drizzle with melted chocolate chips and sprinkle with sea salt.
