Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars

oooooh another day another amazing vegan recipe. also, happy earth day! i made this completely plant-based recipe to celebrate Mother Earth today in partnership with Endangered Species Chocolate. Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars are decadent slices of heaven that are good for the soul.

this post is sponsored by Endangered Species Chocolate but all recipes and opinions are my own. Thank you to my sponsors and amazing community for supporting upbeetandkaleingit, you are so appreciated.

chocolate chips and peanut butter are a combination like no other. i mean, is there a greater one of all time? i think not!

indulge in these completely vegan, delicious, easy to make and all around fabulous bars any day of the week.

Endangered Species Chocolate is one of my all time favorite brands in the whole wide world. why is that? well, to start with, their chocolate is ridiculously good and they have a plethora of vegan options.

secondly though, they give back to wildlife and y’all know how much i love animals.

while they craft delicious chocolate, they also have contributed over $2,600,000 to their GiveBack partners in support of conservation while supporting independent farmers in West Africa through Fairtrade sourcing.

of course i’m obsessed with ESC chocolate bars, but i also LOVE their Oat Milk + Dark Chocolate Chips and that’s what i used for the bars.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars are PERFECT for dessert or a snack every day of the week. you can store them in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container and they hold up well!

it’s important that we have some kind of dessert on hand at all times and this is a favorite. no funky ingredients, easy as can be to put together aaaaand tastes heavenly.

the oat milk baking chips are so smooth and sweet like milk chocolate—but dairy free!!

who is a fan of oat milk? it’s the secret behind ESC’s deliciously different dark chocolate chips, giving them a creamier texture and unusually sweet flavor with no excess sugar, woooo.

ok, so subs! this is the only way i’ve ever made the bars, so sub at your own risk my friends. you could definitely swap the peanut butter though for another nut or seed butter.
