Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

Underneath the crushed pretzel-topped chocolate frosting is a smooth layer of peanut butter and cashew butter. Both nut butters sit atop a salty, graham cracker and puffed quinoa bottom that’s sweetened with coconut sugar. You pretty much get 3 flavors for the price of one no-bake, vegan bar!

Ingredients

Crust Ingredients

  • 10 Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Graham Crackers
  • ½ cup puffed quinoa
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Filling Ingredients

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup nut butter
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons non dairy milk
  • ½ cup crushed gluten-free pretzels
  • ½ cup melted Evolved Cashew Milk bar

Instructions

For the Crust

  • Place the graham crackers into a food processor and pulse until a coarse, sandy consistency is reached.
  • Then place the crushed crackers into a medium-sized bowl. Add in the quinoa, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and salt. Mix until well-combined.
  • Pour the crust into a parchment-lined 8" x 8" pan and freeze until your filling is ready.

For the Filling

  • Place the peanut butter and nut butter in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Mix together both nut butters.
  • Add in the vanilla, maple syrup, and salt. This will thicken up quite a bit. 
  • Add in the non-dairy milk to help bring it back to a spreadable consistency.

Assemble

  • Spread the filling onto the crust.
  • Top the filling with the crushed pretzels and melted chocolate.
  • Then place it back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes until the chocolate sets up.
  • Cut into pieces and enjoy!
