Recipe: Nutbutter Bars

It’s complete! My very first recipe!

I had to start with something baked and something with chocolate….which to me, is the perfect combination!

This recipe is gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and vegan (if your the kind that is okay with honey ;)). Full of nut flavor.

(Please feel free to try this recipe, but please don’t steal it without giving credit; that’s just mean.)

  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 T. chia seed gel
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Okay, I have made these and am taking them to a party. I only have a few things to point out about the recipe. I used Arrowroot Powder (or Tapioca Powder) instead of baking soda. Also, for it to be 100% Gluten Free, you have to use Almond & Vanilla Extract that doesn’t have alcohol in it. I found some imitation vanilla extract that works, but I did not find Alcohol Free Almond Extract. I’m a bit bummed. Only because I have to make sure I tell my friends that have gluten sensitivities that they may have a trace of alcohol in them. Other than that, they smell so yummy. I also love that the batter is a safe “cookie dough” for my kids to eat šŸ™‚
