Chocolate Coconut Oat Bars
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup almond meal
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup natural cane sugar
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 275. Combine oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Mix well.
2. Combine coconut oil, agave nectar, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves and mixture is hot (not boiling). Pour over oat mixture and stir until well mixed and cooled slightly. Stir in chocolate chips, quickly but thoroughly.
3. Press the mixture into an ungreased 8x8" pan and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. Cut into small squares.
