  1. Preheat the oven to 350 (180C) and line an 8×8 or 7×11 inch pan with parchment.

Chocolate Cookie Dough:

  1. Cream together the peanut butter and coconut sugar in the bowl of stand mixer or a medium mixing bowl. Add the almond milk and beat until combined then add salt, soda, baking powder, and vanilla and mix well. Now stir in the cocoa on low until mixed, then add the flour last and continue stirring until your dough comes together. Fold in the chocolate chips and pb cups with a large spatula and divide the dough in half.
  2. Spread half of the dough in the bottom of prepared pan (the dough may be a bit sticky to work with so if you are having trouble it can be chilled until easier to handle.) and press into a smooth layer.

Peanut Butter Filling:

  1. Stir together the maple syrup and peanut butter in another medium bowl until smooth. Add the salt, vanilla, powdered peanut butter, and oat flour and mix until combined then add the powdered sugar a little at a time and mix to incorporate into a thick dough.
  2. Scrape the filling mixture out onto the base cookie dough layer and also press it down to form an even peanut butter layer on top of the chocolate dough.
  3. Now scrape out the remaining chocolate dough over the filling layer and crumble evenly over it for the top layer.
  4. Bake the bars for 18 to 22 minutes until the top is starting to darken and brown on the edges. Remove from oven and, if desired, immediately sprinkle some additional chopped pb cups over top and press down very gently. Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting.
