Chocolate Almond Butter Bars

If you love peanut butter everything, you’re going to love these chocolate almond butter bars! They’re nutty, sweet, and incredibly easy to make. I’m not kidding when I said that my one-year-old helped me make these bars! They’re just that easy. Simply mix the ingredients together for the base of the bars, melt the chocolate, set it in the fridge, and finish with salt. It doesn’t get much easier than that for a snack that you’ll love to eat, and love to share!

The Ingredients Needed for Almond Butter Bars

  • Almond butter.
  • Almond flour. I like to use the brand Bob’s Red Mill.
  • Coconut flour. I recommend using Anthony’s Coconut Flour.
  • Coconut oil.
  • Maple syrup.
  • Vanilla extract.
  • Cinnamon.
  • Dairy-free chocolate chips. I use the brand Enjoy Life.

How to make Chocolate Almond Butter Bars

  • Combine all of the ingredients for the base of the almond butter bars in a large bowl. Stir well to thoroughly combine until the mixture is firm but still creamy and spreadable.
  • Spread the almond butter base into the baking pan, and evenly flatten with a silicone spatula.
  • Prepare the topping. Melt the dairy-free chocolate chips, coconut oil, and almond butter together until fully liquid.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the base of the bars until evenly coated. Transfer to the fridge and allow to set for 3 hours (or overnight).
  • Top the bars with flakey salt and slice into 9 large bars, or smaller bite-sized bars. Keep chilled, or store in the freezer.

What almond butter should you use for these almond butter bars?

You can really use any almond butter of your choice, but I’m a big fan of Barney Butter!

Can you freeze these bars?

Yes! They’re amazing in the freezer. Freeze them in a freezer-safe bag for a little snack whenever you want it!

Are these bars good on the go?

The chocolate can melt easily, so you definitely want to keep these bars chilled. If you’re trying to transport them, my advice is to freeze them first, and then keep them chilled with an ice pack.
