Lightly spray an 8-inch square pan with vegetable oil spray. Cut an 8” by 12” piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom and up 2 of the 4 sides of the pan. (The parchment extending the 2 sides of the pan will be used as handles to lift the square out when ready.)
Place the oil, chocolate and syrup (or honey) in a medium pot set over medium-low heat. Heat and stir until the oil and chocolate have melted and blended together. Mix in the peanut butter.
Remove pot from the heat, and then mix in the oats, 1 cup coconut and hemp seeds.
Tightly pack the mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top of the bar with the 2 Tbsp. coconut flakes. Press down on the coconut to make it adhere. Cool the bar to room temperature, and then cover and refrigerate until set. Cut around the edges of the bar, and then lift it out of the pan. Cut into 16 to 20 even pieces and enjoy some now. The remaining pieces could be set in an airtight container and refrigerated or frozen for another time.
Note: Adams brand peanut butter was used for testing this recipe. Hemp seeds are available in our Vitamins & More and Bulk Foods Departments.
