  • Step 1

    To make the base, pop the oats into your Ninja Food Processor and blend to form a fine crumb. Add in the dates and coconut oil and continue to blend until your mixture is nice and sticky.

  • Step 2

    Press the mixture into a lined brownie tin and firmly pack down.

  • Step 3

    For the caramel, add in the ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Add in the extra water if needed, until you’re left with a super smooth consistency.

  • Step 4

    Spread the caramel over the base layer and pop the bars into the freezer for 2 hours to set.

  • Step 5

    Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together. Once your bars are set, slice into portions and carefully dip each of them into the chocolate to coat.

  • Step 6

    Pop them into a parchment lined tray and place back into the freezer to allow the chocolate to harden.
