Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • rubber spatula

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup natural peanut butter or nut butter
  • 1/4¼ cup maple syrup or syrup sweetener (agave, honey, etc.)
  • 6 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp ground flax meal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips I used Hu Kitchen (refined sugar free)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • flaky sea salt for topping optional

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper going both ways.
  • In a mixing bowl, use a rubber spatula to mix together the peanut butter, syrup, coconut flour and ground flax meal untill well blended. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil into heat proof bowl and melt using a microwave (15 second increments, stirring between each until smooth) or a double boiler.
  • Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter layer and smooth it out in an even layer. Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut into bars. For smooth and perfect edges, let the knife sit in hot water for 1 minute, wipe it dry and then slowly cut the bars so the knife melts the chocolate as it cuts. Serve!

Notes

These bars are best if served chilled and consumed within 1 week.
