A ridiculously delicious peanut butter brownie bar is topped with chocolate ganache and creamy, dairy-free cookie dough in these Secretly Healthy Cavity Bars a.k.a. Cookie Dough Topped Peanut Butter Cookie Bars! Guys, these are the best dessert bars I’ve ever had!!!
I’ve seen a photo floating around Pinterest for some time now of a three layered dessert called a “cavity bar”. I pinned the image so long ago I can’t find it anymore but luckily my food memory is so powerful the image has been burnt into my memory for all eternity. The first layer was a cookie bar followed by a layer of thick chocolate and topped with a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough–and from what I can remember they were definitely not “healthy” by any means.
I’m not one to knock sugar filled desserts. I one hundred percent believe that real desserts are okay for the body (and even better for the mind) as long as it’s accompanied by a balanced lifestyle. Which is great for normal people but then there’s people like me who have an undeniable sweet tooth and need to have dessert once or twice sometimes…three times a day. That’s right. That’s why I make my desserts using [mostly] healthy ingredients.
Can we take a moment to admire the layers on these cookie bars. Layer 1: dense and chewy peanut butter cookie loaded with chocolate chips. Layer 2: a simple yet decadent two-ingredients chocolate ganache. Layer 3: sweet and buttery chocolate chip cookie dough. LITERALLY, ALL MY FAVORITE THINGS IN ONE BAR!

I don’t know about you but if I don’t have healthy snacks around at all times, I tend to be easily tempted by my boyfriend’s cabinet full of Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies and Strawberry Poptarts. Keeping healthy snacks around the kitchen is essential to keep me from eating an entire box of Oreos. This week I made these vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free no bake granola bars full of oats, peanut butter, banana, agave and pretzels. I also tossed in some chia seeds for good measure. 😉
Adding gluten-free pretzels to my baked goods is seriously one of my favorite past times. Not only do they photograph beautifully but I’m a real sucker for a good sweet and salty combination. One of my favorite recipes I’ve made using pretzels were these these Double Chocolate Brownie like Cookies Topped with Gluten-Free Pretzels.

Chocolate is perfectly acceptable to eat for breakfast, right? YES! The answer is yes when paired with oats and in moderation of course. It also helps when you find a stevia sweetened chocolate like Lily’s chocolate bar. I’m not even being paid to post about this chocolate, I really just love it and want to share it with the world! You can get Lily’s online or in Whole Foods, Sprouts or sometimes even large grocery stores will cary them.
