Gone are the days of resorting to plain old peanut butter. Nowadays, we have more nut butters than we know what to do with. So what do we do with all these options? We combine them with chocolate and make versions of our favorite desserts. This recipe is gluten free, low glycemic, and paleo — or basically, anything you could ever want.

Chocolate Sunbutter Bars

  • Prep Time:20 minutes
  • Cook Time:0 minutes
  • Total Time:20 minutes
  • Servings:10 bars
  • Medium

    Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup sunbutter
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (use xylitol for diabetics)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-4 tablespoon light coconut cream
  • 1 cup 70% chocolate chunks
  • 2 tablespoon raw cacao nibs (optional)

Step 1

Stir together all of the ingredients for the dough, except for the coconut cream (it should be fairly crumbly).

Step 2

Add the coconut cream, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together to form a ball.

Step 3

Press the dough into a parchment lined 8×8 glass baking dish and set it in the refrigerator while you prepare the chocolate.

Step 4

Melt together the chocolate and 1 tablespoon coconut cream in the microwave or a double boiler.

#SpoonTip: To make a double boiler, simply place a large bowl on top of a medium pot, that has a little water in the bottom of it. Place it over low heat, and stir until the chocolate is melted.

Step 5

Spread the chocolate over the sunbutter dough and sprinkle it with cocoa nibs, if desired.

Step 6

Chill the bars in the refrigerator, until the chocolate and dough are set up. Cut into pieces and enjoy.
