Did I mention how good for you they are? They’re made without butter or oil, the coconut flour keeps them gluten-free, and they are easily made vegan with the right chocolate chips.

They didn’t even last a day in my house (which is a shame, because they taste even better when they sit overnight). Just be prepared to whip up a second batch before you know it. 🙂


Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Yield: 12-16 bars

Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼-½ cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° and grease an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir the peanut butter, milk, maple syrup, and applesauce until smooth.
  4. Pour dry into wet and stir until combined.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips and smooth into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes and allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
  7. Store bars in the refrigerator-- they'll firm up as they sit.

These bars are vegan with the appropriate milk and chocolate chips.

    Whoa, these look dangerously delicious! My colleagues have a ton of different dietary restrictions, so it can be tough to find recipes to bring to work, but these bars should meet everyone’s needs…especially the needs of my taste buds 😉

    I need to check out Chocolate Covered Katie’s cookbook! *-*

    I’ve heard awesome things about House of Cards, but I’m so so behind on all my other favorite shows (sigh)!

    Those bars look so tasty! I’ll have to make em’ when I’m reunited with my coconut flour! 😛
