Lindt Chocolate In This Recipe
Cut a piece of parchment paper four-inches wide and 15-inches long. Then grease a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan and line it with your prepped paper.
Preheat your oven to 300F°. Toast oats on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add coconut and bake for another five minutes. Let cool.
Warm peanut butter, 2 tbsp of butter or oil, honey and vanilla in medium pot over low heat until mixture is combined and smooth. Remove from heat.
Stir in oats, coconut, salt and hemp seeds. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Coarsely chop five diamonds of EXCELLENCE Sea Salt Chocolate. Fold into oat mixture.
Spoon, press and flatten mixture into your pan using a spoon or spatula.
Chill in fridge uncovered for at least one hour.
Bring up to room temperature for 20 minutes.
Finely chop the remaining chocolate. Heat with remaining butter or coconut oil in small saucepan over very low heat.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the bars, using the back of a small spoon to spread it out evenly.
Chill again for 15 minutes or until chocolate has set. Sprinkle top with sea salt.
Pull bars out of the pan using the ends of the parchment paper. Cut into eight bars or 16 squares.
Store in tightly sealed container in fridge for one to two weeks.
Tip: To make clean cut of the bars, run a long sharp knife under hot water and wipe it down before cutting your slices.
