These bars of one of my favorite desserts to bring to parties and events, and they’re a hit every time. Let’s be honest though, I don’t always make them to share, and neither should you! :)

Serves: 8-10 squares

Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

Chocolate Crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour

  • ¼ cup cacao or cocoa powder

  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil or butter

  • 1 Tbsp. honey

  • Sprinkle of salt

Filling:

  • ½ cup almond butter*

  • 2 Tbsp. honey

  • Sprinkle of salt

Topping:

  • ¼ cup coconut oil

  • 1 Tbsp. honey

  • ¼ -1/3  cup cacao or cocoa powder

*Peanut butter is a great option as well!

  1. Line a standard bread pan with parchment paper. Make sure it comes up the sides of the pan as well.

  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together all the ingredients for the crust. Scoop the crust mixture into the bread pan and press it down evenly into the bottom of the pan. Place pan in the freezer to set.

  3. Rinse your bowl, and use it to combine the ingredients for the filling. Remove the pan from the freezer and create a second layer with the almond butter filling.

  4. Place the pan back in the freezer while you stir together the ingredients for the topping. If you like a sweeter chocolate, use about ¼ cup of cacao for this. If you like a darker chocolate, add more until you get your desired taste. Remove the pan from the freezer and pour the chocolate topping over the almond butter layer.

  5. Place back in the freezer and let it set at least 30 minutes. These bars will melt quickly so keep them frozen until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
