  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup peanut butter must be stir-able, microwave for 20 seconds or more to loosen up if needed.
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour - gluten free flour like Bob's Red Mill could be used. Oat, spelt or almond flour could be used as well.
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar of choice or xylitol can use a couple of tablespoons less if you want, we like to use Zulka, it's organic
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips plus an additional 2 tablespoons for the top of bars


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Grease an 8-inch baking pan, or line with parchment paper for easy removal, spray with non-stick cooking spray, set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix stir-able peanut butter, applesauce and vanilla extract together, then set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the baking soda, salt, flour, sugar, and chocolate chips.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet and keep stirring until dough all comes together. I like using a rubber spatula and folding into the dough to get it to come together for a minute or 2. Dough will be thick, but should not be crumbly.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared pan, and smooth down evenly with a spatula, spoon or use fingertips.
  • Press some chocolate chips into the top if desired.
  • Bake 10 minutes.
  • When you take the peanut butter bars out, the top will look set but they will still be very undercooked underneath, which is what you want. Leave them to cool for at least 20 minutes, during which time they will firm up.
  • Cut into bars and serve.

Thank you for the fantastic recipe, was easy to follow and make. I put it for 4 minutes more in the oven. It tastes divine with the chocolate chips melting.
