Make these easy no-bake chocolate chip Cookie Dough Bars with simple, vegan-friendly ingredients and minimal prep time! Topped with a chocolate peanut butter layer and studded with sweet chocolate chips, they’ll become your new go-to dessert.
Add the peanut butter, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
Gradually add the almond flour to the bowl of wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms. You may need to use your hands! Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
Using your hands, press the cookie dough into a square baking dish lined with parchment paper. Transfer the baking dish to the freezer until the cookie dough is solid.
Melt the chocolate and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl or a double broiler, stirring until smooth. Then, set the mixture aside to cool slightly.
Pour the melted topping over the solid bars in the baking dish. Use a spatula to spread it out evenly. Return the baking dish to the freezer to set.
Use the edges of the parchment paper to lift the bars from the baking dish. Then, place the slab on a cutting board, and use a sharp knife to slice it into bars or squares.
