Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven. If you’re craving peanut butter cups, but would like a healthier version, this recipe hits the spot.

These chocolate peanut butter bars are sweetened with dates. Dates are amazing because they’re chock full of fiber, so it doesn’t cause a big sugar spike in your blood stream.

    Processed white sugar is stripped of all its nutrients. Dates are full of sweetness, but also contain the whole, intact fruit and its nutrients. Dates are full of potassium, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

    These bars are great to make at the beginning of a busy week. Just make sure to store them in your fridge. Then you will always have a delicious snack on hand for when you head out the door.

    If you’d like an amazing treat at the end of the day, pop these bars into the oven for 10 minutes, or until they’re warmed up. Put the warmed up, goey bars into a bowl and top with some vegan ice cream. My GOD, this is about as good as it gets.

    A few notes: Feel free to add any nuts and seeds of your choice. These are also good if you roll them in hemp seeds. This adds some amazing omega 3’s.

    I added maple syrup to my recipe for the texture, but feel free to leave it out if you don’t have it. The soymilk and dates helps with the stickiness as well.

    And that’s it. I hope you enjoy these delicious and easy chocolate peanut butter bars.
