You will need
In a large bowl combine the oats, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, ground flaxseed, salt and cocoa powder.
Add the maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and peanut butter. Combine well.
Empty the mixture into a square tin that is either greased, lined with parchment paper or has a removable base to help lift the bars out. Push firmly into the corners and flatten down, and then place in the fridge for 60 minutes.
Remove from the tin and slice into 8 bars.
Melt the luxury dark chocolate chips and then drizzle it over the bars, leaving a gap for the eyes. Press the coconut flakes onto the melted dark chocolate and then finish by placing the eyes in the gap. You can use a little melted chocolate to stick the eyes on but be aware they are quite hard to bite into, so you may wish to just use for decoration.
Pop them back into the fridge for 5 minutes for the chocolate to harden, and then store leftovers in the fridge and consume within 7 days.
