Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup vegan graham cracker crumbs * 8 crackers
  • 1 cup Anna?s Ginger Thins crumbs 22 thins
  • 6 tbsp unrefined coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 11.25 oz can sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped for a nut free version, use puffed rice
  • pinch flaked sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Line a 9-inch square pan with two pieces of parchment paper (one going each way).
  • Add the crumbs to a medium sized bowl. In another small bowl, melt the coconut oil in the microwave (or in a small pot on the stove).
  • Add the coconut oil and maple syrup to the crumbs. Combine thoroughly.
  • Spoon the crumb mixture into prepared pan. Press very firmly to create a base with even thickness.
  • Pour the condensed coconut milk over the crumb crust. There is no need to warm it first.
  • Now evenly distribute the chocolate chips, shredded coconut and nuts over the condensed milk. Press the toppings down into the milk lightly with your fingers. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt.
  • Bake in the oven, uncovered, for about 33-37 minutes at 350F or until the edges begin to bubble and become golden.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack for about 15 minutes. Once cooled slightly, transfer the pan to the freezer for about 2 hours to set. Remove from the freezer. Lift the bars out of the pan using the parchment paper. Place on a cutting board and use a sharp heavy knife to cut the bars into 16 even pieces (or more if you would like smaller bars).
  • Store the bars in the freezer or fridge.

Notes

*I create the graham cracker and Anna's Ginger crumbs in a food processor.
