  • 1 cup soft pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips divided


  • Place dates into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse until finely chopped. Add the tahini, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Process until a smooth paste forms. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add half the rolled oats and stir until well combined. Add the remaining oats and 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips. Stir until everything is combined and no dry oats remain. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
  • Line an 8- by 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Press the oat mixture into the pan in an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining 2 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips on top and press into the surface of the bars so they don't fall off.
  • Chill the bars until firm, about 30-60 minutes. Cut into 12 bars. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
