A healthy treat satisfy your sweet tooth.. Just 5 ingredients, 15 minutes prep time, gluten-free, vegan and so yummy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars
Just the right balance of chocolate and peanut butter, Indulgent tasting and satisfying!
By now you know we love having a stash of healthy treats in our freezer or refrigerator.
And we love making our own — we use simple, gluten-free and real ingredients, it’s less expensive and they taste amazing.
These Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars are all that!
And these bars are one of my most popular and loved recipes! You all love them, my family loves them and all my boys’ friends devour them!
Best part they are made with just 5 ingredients and super easy to make!
All you need is natural peanut butter, maple syrup, oat flour (or almond flour), chocolate chips and coconut oil.
The base is Peanut Butter (or any nut or seed butter of your choice), Oat flour** (or toss your favorite gluten-free oats into a food processor) and Maple Syrup . ** If you can’t tolerate Oats, we have also made these with Almond flour and they are equally delish!
And the chocolate top is melted chocolate chips and a touch of coconut oil. That’s it!
They take less than 15 minutes to prep, then set in the refrigerator.
First, heat the peanut butter and maple syrup over low heat. Stir in oat flour (or almond flour) and press into the pan.
Top with melted chocolate and refrigerator to set. That’s it!
And like I said, it takes literally 15 minutes to make the bars, then they set in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight. And they store well in the fridge or freezer for weeks (if they last that long!).
Pro tip: Before slicing them let them sit at room temperature for 5 minutes or so. If you slice into them when they are just out of the refrigerator, the chocolate my crack.
But if you wait 5-10 minutes, they will slice cleanly!
Oh, and did I mention …. they are really YUMMY!
So go ahead and make a batch! You’ll be happy you did!
**UPDATE: Many of you have asked for a substitute to oat flour. We made it with almond flour in place of oat flour and it worked beautifully if you are looking for an oat-free, grain-free alternative.
