Servings: 8
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

Crust:
  • 3/4 c. ground graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • pinch of sea salt

Filling:
  • 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil

Topping:
  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 c. melted coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • pinch of sea salt


Directions:
  1. Line a small pan with parchment paper; This will help you lift the bars out easily for cutting.
  2. Stir together crust ingredients until well mixed and pour into your parchment-lined pan. Distribute crust evenly and press down firmly. Place in freezer while preparing the filling.
  3. Whisk all filling ingredients together and pour onto your crust. Spread evenly and place pan in freezer while preparing the chocolate topping.
  4. Whisk all topping ingredients together except the sea salt. Pour over the filling layer and tilt the pan to spread it evenly. Place in freezer for a few minutes to set, then sprinkle with the sea salt. Return to freezer to set completely.

  5. Once completely set, you can remove the parchment lining from the pan and cut (while frozen) into bars. You can return these to the freezer and thaw a few at a time, or move to the fridge if you will be serving soon. I would put these out on the countertop about an hour before serving.
