5 Ingredient Choc, Tahini & Oat Squares

Be warned these are completely addictive! It’s incredible just how delicious these little squares are considering the simple ingredients.  Just oats blitzed to a flour, blended with gooey sweet dates then topped with chocolate with a tahini swirl.

I used beautiful sweet and runny tahini which works perfectly. If you have more solid tahini you can add a little melted coconut oil or maple syrup if you’d like it a bit sweeter.

The sea salt flakes take these squares to the next level – sweet and slightly salty. 
You need to store them in the fridge otherwise the topping will melt a bit, plus I love them cold and crispy. 

Enjoy! Love, Niki xxx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

  16 servings
  10 minutes preparation time
  None cook time


  • 150g oats of choice 
  • 300g  medjool dates, pitted 
  • Pinch sea salt flakes 
  • 200g vegan chocolate 
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil 
  • 2 tbsp runny tahini or peanut butter 
  • Pinch sea salt flakes 


  1. Firstly add the oats to a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb. Now add the dates and sea salt and blitz again until you get a chunky dough. 
  2. Line a small tray with baking paper then transfer the oat mix. Squish down to cover the base and into the corners. 
  3. Break up the chocolate and add with the coconut oil to a saucepan and heat very gently on a low heat until melted. Don’t over stir.
  4. Now pour over the oats to coconut cover. 
  5. Drizzle the tahini over top of the chocolate and swirl around a little. 
  6. Sprinkle some sea salt flakes and pop in the fridge to firm up – at least an hour. 
  7. Keep in the fridge.

    Hi, I’m not vegan but love your recipes. Rainbow Bowls is my current go to recipe book! Anyway, sorry, just wondering what I could use instead of coconut oil as that doesn’t agree with me. Thanks
