Mini Crunch Bars with Peanut Butter Drizzle (Vegan, gluten-free, no bake/raw, soy-free)

For the Bars:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 tablespoons liquid sweetener (maple syrup, agave, etc.), or to taste
  • pinch of sea salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rice crisp cereal

Line a 9×5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. In a pot over low heat, gently melt the coconut oil and then whisk in the rest of the crunch bar ingredients (except the rice crisp) to taste. Once the mixture is smooth remove from heat and stir in the rice crisp cereal. Pour mixture into prepared pan, smooth out, and then freeze for 10-15 minutes, or until the chocolate is solid.

For the Peanut Butter Drizzle:

  • 2 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter of choice)
  • 1.5-2 teaspoons coconut oil, as needed to thin out
  • 1 teaspoon liquid sweetener (maple syrup, agave, etc.)

Melt the coconut oil and then whisk in the peanut butter and liquid sweetener. Adjust to taste if desired. Scoop into a plastic baggie. Remove crunch bars from the freezer and cut into 12 small bars. Snip a tiny hole in the baggie and drizzle the PB mixture onto the bars (you can also try drizzling it with a spoon, if desired). Return bars to the freezer until the PB drizzle is solid, about 5 minutes. Serve straight from the freezer or fridge. Bars will melt slightly at room temperature so I don’t suggest keeping them out long. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.

No-Bake Elvis Bars (vegan, gluten-free, grain-free)

Crust:

1 1/2 cups almonds
2 Tbs coconut oil
2 tbs maple syrup
1 Tbs almond butter or peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt

Add the almonds into a food processor and process until fine crumbs, slightly larger than sand. Now add in the rest of the crust ingredients and process until the mixture comes together, scraping the side of the bowl as needed. The mixture should be a slightly tacky and should stick together when pressed with your fingers. If it’s not, add a very small splash of water and process again for a few seconds. Evenly press into a parchment lined 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Place in freezer while you prepare the filling.

Filling:

2 medium ripe bananas, peeled
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened slightly
2 Tbs almond butter or peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt, to taste

Give the processor bowl a quick rinse. Add all the filling ingredients into the processor and process until smooth. Remove the crust from the freezer and pour the filling on top. Smooth out. Return to the freezer for at least 1-2 hours to set, until the filling is very firm to the touch.

Chocolate Drizzle:

3 Tbs semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp coconut oil

When the filling is completely solid, prepare the topping. In a small pot heat the chocolate and coconut oil on the lowest heat, stirring to combine. When half of the chips have melted, remove the pot from the heat and stir until completely melted. Remove the bars from the freezer. Lift slab out of the pan and slice into squares. Spread out the squares on a plate lined with parchment paper. Drizzle on the melted chocolate and return bars to the freezer until the chocolate is firm and the bars are solid. Enjoy these bars frozen, straight from the freezer. They melt very quickly so I don’t suggest leaving them out for more than a couple minutes. Store leftovers in the freezer. Yields 16 small squares.
