Description

These are full of good ingredients, like dates, chickpeas/garbanzo beans, oats, and natural sugars. I like to make this flourless dessert for my children because they love them and I'm not worried about them eating unhealthy ingredients.


Ingredients

Scale

Chocolate topping

  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbs cocoa
  • 1/3 cup any clean liquid sweetener
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Combine the dates and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes, or until the dates soften.
  3. Drain any excess water and scoop the dates into a food processor fitted with an "s" or chopping blade.
  4. Add the chickpeas, old-fashioned oats, salt and cinnamon.
  5. Process about five minutes, or until the mixture starts to look smooth and the oats are evenly mixed in.
  6. Scrape into a large mixing bowl and stir in the peanut butter, coconut sugar, liquid sweetener, vanilla and coconut oil.
  7. Line a pan with parchment paper. Use an 8" x 8" or 9" x 9" for thick bars, or a 9" x 13" for thinner bars.
  8. Press the mixed dough firmly into the pan and freeze 10 minutes. Spread 3/4 cup peanut butter over the dough and return to freezer.
  9. To make the chocolate topping, melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat.
  10. As soon as it's mostly melted, remove from heat and stir in the rest of the chocolate topping ingredients.
  11. Pour the topping over the peanut butter layer and freeze 20 minutes before cutting into bars.

  12. Store the bars covered in the freezer. They cut easily even when frozen. They keep at least two weeks.
