Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars made with an almond crust and sweetened with maple. These bars are vegan and gluten free, and make the perfect afternoon treat!



For the base:

  • 1 cup fine blanched almond flour (packed)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt

For the Peanut Butter layer:

  • 2/3 cup natural peanut butter (drippy)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the Chocolate layer:

  • 12 oz non-dairy dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Maldon sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  2. For the base: in a large bowl, whisk almond and coconut flour, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla. Stir to combine. Scoop and press onto prepared pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.
  3. For the Peanut Butter layer: in a medium saucepan over low heat, whisk drippy peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract, until glossy. Pour over cooled crust and freeze for at least 15 minutes.
  4. For the chocolate layer: in a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in 30 second increments, stirring in between with a fork. Should be drippy and not thick and paste-like. Pour over peanut butter layer, spreading quickly with a small angled spatula, or the back of a spoon. Refrigerate for an hour until chocolate hardens. Sprinkle sea salt before serving. Enjoy!
