A few days ago J and I decided to make som vegan no-bake peanut butter bars and since they turned out quite well I feel it’s only right to share them with you.
Starting of the bars are made up of three different layers. Dates, peanut butter and chocolate. The bars are also easy and fairly quick to make. Knowing this, lets begin!For the bottom layer you will need:
12 soft dates
150g almond flour
3 3/4 tbsp milkfree butter (can be replaced with coconut fat)
Mash the dates in a bowl using a fork. Add the butter and the almond flour. With an electric whisk mix the ingredients together. (If you have a food processor you could just throw all the ingredients in it and mix them together.) When the ingredients are nicely combined line a tin with plastic foil. Spread the bottom layer evenly on the bottom of the tin and put it in the freezer while preparing the middle layer.
Now it’s time to make the middle layer. You will need:
2 1/4 dl peanut butter (chunky or smooth depending on what you prefer)
150g almlund flour
Using a spoon mix the peanut butter and the almond flour together. Take the tin out of the freezer and spread the middle layer on top of the bottom layer. Put the tin back into the freezer.
Wait until the majority of the middle layer has “frozen” (will take about 20-45 minutes) before you start preparing the top layer. For the top layer you will need:
100g dark chocolate
A few pinches of sea salt (optional)
Melt the chocolate using a water bath (Heat water in a pot. Place a metal bowl on top of the water. Make sure no water gets into the bowl. Put the chocolate in the bowl and stir occasionally while the chocolate melts.). Let the chocolate cool a bit before you spread it on top if the middle layer. If you want you can sprinkle some sea salt on top of the chocolate but be aware of the saltiness. Wait until the chocolate has set before you place the tin (once again) into the freezer. Take it out 10 minutes before serving and cut into cubes. (If you get leftovers I recommend putting them in some metal foil and storing them in the freezer.)
