Ingredients:

4 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
6 ripe bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

Chocolate sauce

4 tbs cacao

4 tbs maple syrup/honey

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup of coconut cream

Instructions

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 180*C. Line a baking pan with baking paper.

Step 2: In your food processor add the rolled oats and pulse until they are are very fine. Place in a mixing bowl and add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 3: Add the bananas, apple sauce, peanut butter, and maple syrup to the food processor. Pulse until it is liquified. Add this mixture to the oat mixture and combine with a spatula. Add the 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Step 4: Spread the batter into the prepared baking pan. The mixture will be thick, bake for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Make the sauce while the blondies are baking. For the chocolate sauce, place the ingredients in a double warmer and stir until all the ingredients are melted and combined.

Step 6: Transfer the blondies to a wire rack. Poke holes in the top with a fork (while it is fresh out of the oven) and pour some sauce over the blondies to let it soak in.

Step 7: Cut into squares, drizzle more of the chocolate over the blondies while still warm and serve.
