A healthy treat satisfy your sweet tooth.. Just 5 ingredients, 15 minutes prep time, gluten-free and vegan
Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Bars
Indulgent tasting, Yummy 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!
They are made with just 5 ingredients– a base of 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 + a top of melted chocolate chips and a touch of coconut oil. That’s it! ** If you can’t tolerate Oats, we have also made these with Almond flour and they are delish!
And they are super easy to make. 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 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!).
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.
