This recipe is a "must try" a lot of work but worth every bit! These bars are refined sugar-free and gluten-free.
For the Nougat:
2/3 cup (64g) Rolled Oats*, processed into flour.
1/4 cup (60ml) Coconut Oil
3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
For the Caramel:
For the Peanuts:
2/3 cup (3.5 oz /100g) Roasted Salted Peanuts
For the Chocolate:
2 cups (350g) Vegan Chocolate (Chopped)*
1 tsp Coconut Oil
Place the rolled oats into a food processor and process until mostly powdery. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup and sea salt and process together into a paste.
Pour out into a parchment lined loaf pan and smooth down. Place into the freezer to set.
Melt the coconut butter by placing the whole jar into a bowl of hot water and then stir it very well until well mixed. Measure out 1/2 cup and pour it into a mixing bowl. Add in the maple syrup and vanilla and stir to combine.
Pour the caramel out on top of the set nougat layer and smooth down. Then add the peanuts and gently press down with a spoon to press them into the caramel. Place into the freezer to set.
When set, lift it all out with the parchment paper and cut into 6 even bars.
Melt the chocolate by placing it into a microwave safe bowl along with the coconut oil and microwaving it in 30 second intervals, bringing it out to stir every 30 seconds until completely melted.
Dunk each bar into the chocolate, flipping it over to coat both sides and then placing it onto a parchment lined baking tray. Repeat for all the bars. Place into the fridge to set. Once set, drizzle any remaining chocolate over the top of the bars to create a nice pattern and then return to the fridge again to set.
Keep the bars stored in the fridge.
