Chocolate-Macadamia Oat Bars
Adapted from Diabetic Living's Chocolate Orange Pistachio Bars
1.5 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped (measure first, then chop)
2.5 tablespoon brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons almond milk
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons agave nectar*
5 drops stevia*
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Heaping 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used 60%)
2-3 tablespoons (I filled a 1/3 cup measuring cup half full) macadamia nuts, finely chopped
*These bars aren't really sweet (which I personally like), but if you want a sweeter bar, you can add more agave, stevia, or probably even a dry sugar. If you increase agave, you may need to decrease the almond milk, and if you add dry sugar, you may need to increase the almond milk.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8x8 inch pan (I used coconut oil), and set aside.
Combine the oats, 1/3 cup macadamia nuts, rice flour, and baking soda. Then add the almond milk, coconut oil, agave, stevia, and vanilla extract and mix well.
