Method

1

Preheat the oven to 160Fan/180*C and line an 8-inch square dish with parchment paper.

2

Make the base layer by blitzing the oats, hazelnuts, and salt to a fine meal/flour consistency. Add to a mixing bowl with the maple syrup and coconut oil. Stir to a sticky dough.

3

Press into the lined tin to make an even base layer and bake for 10 minutes.

4

Remove from the oven and spread over the condensed milk.

5

Sprinkle over the chocolate then the coconut and then the chopped hazelnuts. Bake for 10-12 minutes more until golden brown and bubbling.

6

Allow to cool for 1 hour then transfer to the fridge cool fully for 6 hours (or overnight) and then slice into 9 bars/squares. You can set them in the freezer too, for 1-2 hours.
