Sweet peanut butter bars come together in a jiffy, plus they’re gluten free and vegan, so they count as an energy-packed snack, too.
By Robin Runner
I’m always testing out bar recipes for my kids and husband. I feel like I can’t keep enough healthy dairy and gluten free snacks in my house. This is definitely a problem during swim season with a voraciously starving teenager.
This recipe could also be used as a pie – springform pan would be best. Would also be fun drizzled with melted dark chocolate (recipe for a sauce below). It is decadent so a little goes a long way. Plus a great vegan protein source and who doesn’t love more peanut butter in their life?! My husband and kids have loved these as a post dinner treat right from the freezer.
