Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Bars


We’re often looking for a dessert that satisfies both our sweet tooth and our wellness goals. The goal is to look for less high-processed sugars and a balance of protein and fiber. The combo of nutrients in this peanut butter bar is sure to help keep you fuller longer while providing you with the true enjoyment of indulging. Sometimes less-processed treats or ones made healthier involve ingredients that are hard to find. But most of those items are expensive and unnecessary. There is so much to say for the basic whole food sources that can be found on our pantry shelves. Try this dairy-free, gluten-free, high-protein and high-fiber bar with the perfect level of less-processed sweetness. Yields 16 squares


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius). Line an eight-inch (20-centimeter) square Pyrex with Gefen Parchment Paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed banana, peanut butter, almond flour, maple syrup, egg, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined, being careful not to overmix, and then fold in your chips.
3. Transfer the mixture to the prepared Pyrex. You can top with additional chocolate chips (or omit to lessen the sugar content). Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
4. Allow to cool fully prior to slicing for a clean-cut bar. (You can place them in the freezer for a few minutes to speed up the process.)
