Cow Piles


  • 1 cup GF rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans
  • 3/4 cup Cacao butter - find it here
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Cacao powder - find it here
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt


In a sauce pan over medium high heat, add Cacao butter, maple syrup, Cacao powder and stir until melted and combined. Turn off heat, add vanilla, oats, pecans and a pinch of salt. Stir until combined. Next, line a sheet tray with parchment paper and spoon approximately 2 tbsp of mixture in dollops or 'piles' on parchment, equally spread apart. If you have course sea salt, sprinkle the top of each “pile”. Place in freezer for at least 20 minutes to firm up. Store in a plastic freezer bag and pull out when you need a sweet treat!


PS: you could sub cacao butter with coconut oil or coconut butter but the texture may not be the same.  You can also sub cacao powder with coco powder.
