1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp dark chocolate chips

- Mix the oat flour, protein powder, rice crops, and salt together in a large bowl until well combined.
- Add the nut/seed butter, maple syrup, and vanilla into the bowl and stir them all well. If you find that the mixture is a bit dry, add a tablespoon of milk.
- Pour the mixture into the pan and pop it into the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
- Combine the coconut oil together with the chocolate chips in a small pot over low heat until they start to melt.
- Remove the tray from the freezer, then slice it into bars and drizzle with melted chocolate. Freeze again until the chocolate has set.
