2/3 cup palm syrup (didn't have maple but I had a can of palm syrup from Chile, yummy!)
¼ cup safflower oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cups steel cut oats
1/2 cup of oat bran
3/4 cup natural almonds(chopped)
¼ cup chia seeds
1/2 cup finely chopped figs
1/2 cup finely chopped Goji berries
1 cup unsweetened coconut
Add peanut butter, palm syrup and safflower oil into a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Stir in cocoa powder, oat bran, oats, almonds, chia seeds, figs, Goji berries, and coconut. Line an 8 inch (2 L) square glass or metal pan with aluminum foil so it overhangs pan. Press mixture into pan. Refrigerate overnight, until firm. To serve, lift squares out of pan using aluminum foil. Cut into 32 bars. I wrapped each bar with plastic wrap and put half of them in the freezer.
They came out soft, chewy, and tasty. And I believe they are as nutritional as the original recipe.
Bob took one to work to try and he loved it!! That's proof enough for me!
