Kids in the Kitchen Link Up Week 31
Dairy Free Peanut Butter Bars
Can I just say, “Yum!” A girlfriend made these for me years ago and I have been making them ever since. This is such a simple, healthy, all natural treat to make and eat. My kids always want me to make them when they have friends over. When we are invited to someone’s house for dinner and I am to bring a dessert, the peanut butter bars are always on the top of the list. In fact, once I make them and take them to a friend’s house, I often am asked, “Can you make peanut butter bars for us again?” People are very surprised when I share the ingredients with them. When it comes to eating “sweets”, I like using all natural ingredients. I do not want to put preservatives, additives, chemicals and dyes into my body, nor my family and friends. I enjoy baking and sharing what I bake with others.
So, let’s get started!
Ingredients to Make Peanut Butter Bars
1/2 cup peanut butter (soy or preferably almond butter)
1/2 cup butter (Earth Balance non-dairy, gluten free buttery spread)
1 1/2 cup Sucanat (what we use instead of white sugar)
2 organic eggs
1 cup freshly milled soft organic white wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. madagascar vanilla
optional topping: sprinkled non-dairy semi sweet chocolate chips
Melt butter and peanut butter together.
Add the sucanat and stir well. Next add the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the fresh milled wheat flour, baking powder and sea salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until well blended.
Press into a greased 9″x13″ pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips all over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Let cool and cut into squares. Depending on the size of the square, makes about 2 dozen.
