  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease/line 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and salt until dough forms.
  3. Press dough flat into pan. Bake for 18 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a saucepan over medium high heat, add coconut sugar, coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt. Whisk together. Bring to boil and reduce heat to medium. Let boil for 3 minutes or until sauce has thickened. It will also thicken as it sits.
  5. Turn off heat and pour caramel over crust. Sprinkle peanuts over top of caramel, pressing down slightly to ensure they are in the caramel. Freeze for 1 hour.
  6. Take out of freezer and cut into 12 bars. Freeze for another 30 minutes.
  7. Melt chocolate and oil in microwave in 30 second increments. Once fully melted, dunk each bar completely in chocolate. Place on parchment paper or greased cookie cooling rack.
  8. Sprinkle bars with flaky sea salt while still warm. Refrigerate 30 minutes before eating. Keep stored in refrigerator.
