Oat Fudge Bars - Tastes like Starbucks!


I remember trying these at Starbucks and I would crave them so much. I never really bought them though because Starbucks is pretty pricey and they weren't really healthy anyways. I recently had the craving for them again so I made two batches! One was a not-so-clean version that I gave to my cheer team, and the other one (displayed in the picture) is a cleaner version of this recipe :).

Oat Layer:
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup coconut butter
  • 2 + 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 + 1/2 cup truvia or coconut sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Cream the butter, sugar and eggs together.
  2. Combing all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. 
  4. Press 2/3 of the mixture into a 8x8inch pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 350F for 25-30 mins or until golden brown. 

Fudge Layer:
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 4 Tbsp agave or pure maple syrup
  • 2 Heaped tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/3 Cup coconut oil, melted


  1. Melt your coconut oil and add to a mixing bowl with all the other ingredients. 
  2. Stir until a very smooth paste! 
  3. Pour on top of bottom layer when it is done baking. 
  4. Crumble the rest of the Oat layer on top of the fudge layer. 
  5. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Slice into little squares and enjoy!
