Wet Ingredients
  • One 15 oz can
  • rinsed and drained 270 g
  • 1/2 cup
  • I used coconut milk 120 ml
  • 1 tbsp lime juice or lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup
  • I used cashew butter 80 g
  • 1 tsp
Dry Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup
  • or sugar of choice 100 g
  • 2 cups instant oats gluten free if needed (180 g)
  • 1 tsp
  • 1/4 tsp
  • 1/4 tsp
  • 1/2 cup dairy free
  • + more for the top 120 g in total


  • Prepare and measure all the ingredients. Once you are done preheat oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) and line a baking pan with parchment paper. My baking pan measures 9″x6″ (23 x 15 cm).
  • Put all wet ingredients into a food processor and mix until smooth.
  • Add all dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) and mix again, just for a few seconds (don’t overmix).
  • Now add the dairy-free chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
  • Spoon the batter into the lined baking pan. Top with more chocolate chips or chocolate chunks.
  • Bake in the oven for about 28-35 minutes (it can take some minutes more or less, depending on your oven and the size of your baking dish). I have a gas oven and baked them for exactly 35 minutes. You can insert a toothpick into the middle after 28 minutes. When it comes out dry, it’s done!
  • Let cool and cut into bars. Enjoy for breakfast or as a dessert!
