Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Bars

if i can convince you to make one dessert this week…it should be Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Bars!

follow for EASY and delicious vegan recipes!

Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Bars are out of control delicious and made with a peanut butter, pretzel and date base.

i am truly surprised the bars actually became a finished product because i kept eating the base, ha.

the center is just a simple peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut flour and coconut oil filling.

it’s simple and brings the bottom and top layer flavors together.

lastly, the top layer is just melted chocolate chips! i opted for a lower sugar one that is sweetened with coconut sugar.

the salty component from the pretzels is beyond delicious truly what pulls this recipe together.

while Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Bars aren’t too sweet, they still need that salty touch from the pretzels.

Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Bars should be stored in the freezer and thawed a bit before eating them.

i recommend this so the pretzels don’t get soggy, which they will if you store the bars in the fridge.

here’s everything you need to make Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Bars

pretzels of your choosing

runny peanut butter (whole foods brand, trader joe’s, crazy richard’s, sprouts brand)

dairy free milk

coconut oil

medjool dates

vanilla extract

coconut flour

chocolate chips

that’s all you need! how easy is that? there’s so much overlap with ingredients and you can find them at every grocery store.

the bars are wholesome but decadent enough where they taste like candy bars.

take them to your next party or just prep a batch to keep in the freezer for when the sweet tooth hits.
