Ingredients

    3 cups (750 mL) quick rolled oats

    1 1/4 cups (310 mL) chopped walnuts, divided

    1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt

    3 Tbsp (45 mL) melted coconut oil

    1/2 cup (125 mL) maple syrup

    1 cup (250 mL) cooked green lentils

    3 Tbsp (45 mL) almond or peanut butter

    1 large egg

    1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract

    1/2 cup (125 mL) chocolate chips

    3 Tbsp (45 mL) sweetened condensed milk


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Line a 9x12 inch (or similar) dish or deep tray with parchment paper.
  2. Place oats, 1 cup (250 mL) walnuts, and salt into a food processor. Pulse until the oats and walnuts are slightly broken down. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Place coconut oil, maple syrup, cooked lentils, nut butter, egg, and vanilla into the processor. Pulse until smooth in consistency and lentils are completely blended.
  4. Pour lentil mixture and chocolate chips in with the oats and mix until well combined.
  5. Spread mixture evenly in the lined baking dish. Firmly press down using a spatula, ensuring that all corners are even. Drizzle the condensed milk over top and sprinkle with remaining 1/ 4 cup (60 mL) walnuts.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for at least 30 minutes in the tray. Cut into 10 pieces.

Quick tip: Add ½ cup (125 mL) of your favourite dried fruit to the mixture.

Add almonds, coconut flakes, or pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts if quick tip you prefer.
