Serves 8 bars     adjust servings

A healthy snack you can make in the slow cooker!


  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tsp ground vanilla beans or vanilla extract
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4-5 chopped medjool dates
  • 2 flax eggs


  1. In one bowl , combine all the dry ingredients.
  2. Combine wet in another bowl .
  3. Add wet to dry and mix until everything is combined.
  4. Fold in the chopped dates.
  5. Grease the slow cooker . I used a 7 quart.
  6. Place some parchment paper in the bottom of the slow cooker and also up the sides.
  7. Grease the parchment paper as well.
  8. Spoon batter into the slow cooker and pat the mixture down well so it's evenly distributed.
  9. Cook on low for about 2 1/2 hours. (You can tell it's done when the middle is no longer mushy.
  10. Once the bars are done, pull them out by grabbing the parchment paper. Set them aside to cool for 40 minutes.
  11. Once the mixture has cooled completely, cut it into bars using a pizza cutter.


Recipe Notes

These bars need to be stored in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them.
