No Bake Brownie Bars
Samah Dada
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup + 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted & cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup + 3 tbsp almond flour
  • ⅓ cup mini vegan chocolate chips (but honestly, I measure with my soul)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • Flaky sea salt for topping
  1. Line a quarter baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, melted and cooled coconut oil, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  2. Add the almond flour.
  3. Sift the cocoa powder into the bowl and add a pinch of salt. Mix to incorporate.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Transfer the brownie batter to your prepared baking sheet and pack it down using a spatula and your hands into a rectangle-ish shape about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
  6. In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in your microwave in 15-second increments, stirring between intervals until completely glossy and smooth.
  7. Pour the melted chocolate over the brownie batter and smooth it until even over the entire surface area.
  8. Add flaky salt on top and place it in the freezer to set for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
  9. Slice into bars.
  10. Enjoy!
