Who doesn’t like peanut butter and chocolate? I am definitely the biggest fan and this recipe might be my new favorite. It is so easy. peanut buttery, and chocolatey. They are the perfect combination of rich, creamy, sweet, and satisfying. Also, there is no added oil! Basically, it’s like the best homemade Reese’s ever. Be careful though, because they are addicting! I couldn’t stop eating it. Make this for your next party, or just for fun.(adapted from The China Study cookbook)
No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars
1 cup low-fat, vegan graham crackers, crushed (1 sleeve)
1/4 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup reduced-fat, unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup almond milk
1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips (I used vegan dark chocolate chips)
5 Tbsp almond milk
Crush graham crackers in a food processor. In a separate bowl, add the walnuts, coconut, and peanut butter. Stir in crushed graham crackers.
Slowly add the 1/4 cup of almond milk and mix. If mixture doesn’t mix together, slowly add more almond milk until all ingredients stick together. However, don’t make it too soft, and if necessary, use your hands to mix.
Spread mixture evenly and pack down into a 9×9 non-stick baking dish.
In a separate saucepan, melt chocolate chips together with the 5 Tbsp of almond milk over medium heat. Stir until smooth.
Spread chocolate mixture on top of peanut butter mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until hardened. I like to put mine in the freezer so they set better. Cut into squares and enjoy!
