Chocolatey Peanut Butter Bars

Oh my YUM. These are so good and incredibly easy! Plus, there is no baking necessary. So, if you swear by the fact that you are not a baker, then no worries, I got you. You just pop these in the freezer, let them harden and enjoy! They’re free of refined sugar and include one of the best combos ever; peanut butter + chocolate. I’m obsessed with these and I hope you love them too!

Ingredients:

1 cup almond flour or almond meal

7 medjool dates, pitted

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup and 2 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp coconut oil

113g 80-85% dark chocolate bar (for baking)

Directions:

1. Combine the almond flour and dates in a food processor or blender until smooth. Press firmly into a small form or baking dish.

2. Combine the peanut butter and 1/2 cup of maple syrup into high speed blender or food processor for just a few seconds, until mixed together. Pour over the top of the date and almond flour layer. Pop into the freezer.

3. In a small sauce pan, melt the chocolate on low and add in coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir until completely melted and combined. Pour over the peanut butter layer and let set in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until the chocolate is hardened.

You can store these in the fridge or freezer. If you store in the fridge, they last about a week. The freezer keeps them for a bit longer, I would say at least 3 weeks, but I always eat them before then so it’s hard to say! I hope you enjoy. xo

With love,
