Let’s Begin:

1. Line a 23cm x 13cm pan with grease-proof paper.

2. To prepare the base, pulse the oats in a blender or food processor until flour is formed. Add all other base ingredients and pulse until a mostly smooth texture is formed. Scoop the mixture out and press it into the bottom of the pan. Place in the fridge to chill for 15 minutes.

3. To prepare the caramel peanut butter layer, blend all ingredients until smooth. Spread the mixture over the crust layer. Place in the fridge to chill for 15 minutes.

4. To prepare the chocolate layer, in a small cup, stir all ingredients together until smooth. Pour over the caramel layer. Sprinkle with a little extra sea salt.

5. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour or until top is firm. Remove from pan by lifting out grease-proof paper. Use a warm knife to slice.
