Instructions

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 375F and line a 8×8” pan with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Base: Add the oats, coconut, and salt to the base of a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse until a fine flour forms. Add the maple syrup to the food processor along with 1 tablespoon of filtered water and pulse until a damp dough forms. Add additional water in 1 tablespoon increments, if necessary – the mixture should look relatively dry, but hold together when you pinch it. Use a spatula to firmly and evenly press the base into the pan, then bake in the middle rack of the oven for 10 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  3. Prepare the Filling: Quickly rinse the food processor, then add the tofu, melted chocolate, coconut milk, and salt to it. Blend until a thick and even texture forms. Pour the filling over the pre-cooked base and use a spatula to spread it out smoothly and evenly.
  4. Bake: Top with vegan marshmallows, then bake in the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before slicing and serving; the marshmallows will be puffed up when first removed, but will deflate with time. 
  5. Serve: Slice into 9 even bars, then serve as desired. Leftovers will keep at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
