Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars that are gluten free, whole grain, high in fiber & protein. Health food disguised as delicious cookie bars.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 13×9 inch baking dish with non-stick spray or grease with butter or shortening.
  2. Dump all of the ingredients, except the chocolate chips and 4 tbsp peanut butter for topping, into the bowl of a standing mixer and beat on low speed just until mixed. (You can also use a hand held mixer or just beat with a wooden spoon.)
  3. Press the cookie dough into a tight layer in the bottom of the pan with your fingertips. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and turn the oven off. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips across the top of the cookie bars and put the pan back into the oven for 1 minute. Remove from the oven and spread the melted chocolate across the cookie bars in an even layer. Let the cookie bars cool in the pan completely.
  5. When the bars are completely cool, put the remaining 4 tbsp of peanut butter into a small bowl and heat in the microwave for about 20 seconds – just until it’s fluid enough to pour. Using a spoon, drizzle the peanut butter over the surface of the bars in a crisscross design. Let the peanut butter cool, slice into 24 bars, and serve. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
