Peanut Butter Crust:

  • 1 ½ c almond flour
  • ½ c peanut butter smooth or crunchy
  • 2 T coconut oil melted
  • 1/3 c maple syrup
  • ¾ c coconut shredded, unsweetened

Caramel Glaze:

  • 1 T coconut oil melted
  • ¾ c dates pits removed, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ c water
  • 1 T . maple syrup
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 T cacao nibs
  • 3 T coconut shredded, unsweetened


For the Peanut Butter Crust:

  1. In the bowl of a food processor combine all of the peanut butter crust ingredients. Process for 1-2 minutes, or until mixture begins to hold together and form a ball.
  2. Press peanut butter crust into a parchment paper-lined 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Refrigerate while preparing the caramel glaze.

For the Caramel Glaze:

  1. Place oil, dates, water, syrup and salt into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 2 minutes, stopping every 20-30 seconds to scrape the sides. You want the dates to be completely smooth and the glaze to have a caramel consistency.
  2. (Optional) Place glaze into a ziptop bag and cut one of the corners. Squeeze glaze out of the bag over the peanut butter crust layer in a criss-cross pattern.
  3. If you don’t want to do the above, you can simply spread the glaze over the peanut butter bars.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining 2-3 T. cacao nibs and coconut over the caramel glaze.
  5. Refrigerate bars for at least 1 hour before serving and keep refrigerated between servings. Enjoy!
