Ingredients

Scale

Chocolate Chip Bars

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup refined coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the almond flour, oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Set aside and work on the cream cheese filling. Warm the cream cheese and combine with the pure maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  7. Add about 2/3 of the batter to a greased 8×8 baking dish. You can use a little more if needed, just make sure you have enough batter left for the top layer.
  8. Pour the cream cheese filling on top of the batter and spread evenly.
  9. Add the remaining batter on top of the cream cheese filling. This is easiest to do with your hands by placing chunks on top and then swirling/spreading.

  11. Let cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!
