First, in a saucepan, gently melt your coconut oil.  Once melted, add in the nut butter of your choice, along with the cocoa powder, agave syrup and a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, prepare two cups of rolled oats in a mixing bowl.  Pour the chocolate mixture over the oats and gently mix, until well incorporated.

Finally, transfer the oat mixture to an 8 x 8 baking dish lined with parchment paper.  This will help when it is time to cut the bars.

Place in the freezer for approximately one hour, until the bars are nice and firm.  Once chilled, cut the bars into rectangles.  This mixture should make 8 to 10 good size bars.  Store in a Tupperware container in the freezer and indulge whenever the craving strikes!
