CELIAC CHICKS GLUTEN FREE DAIRY FREE PEANUT BUTTER LOVE BARS
Celiac Chicks Gluten Free Dairy Free Peanut Butter Love Bars
I got this recipe from Kelly Courson over at Celiac Chicks. This was Recipe #5 in the "Gluten Free Baking With KitchenAid" event. These "peanut butter love bars" are SOOO easy. You just need four basic ingredients and about twenty minutes of your time, and you have a quick easy gluten free treat the whole family can enjoy. It just doesn't get any easier than this little idea. It is like diving into a VAT of peanut butter! OH! My DREAM! As Kelly says in her original post, you can keep these love bars simple, or jazz them up with some chocolate or jam. I actually thought it would be wonderful to do all sorts of variations with different nut butters, fruits and sweeteners! Perhaps a version with almond butter, chocolate, cherries and agave? YUMMO! **Or try Be Free Bakers version that she shared in the comments for those allergic to peanuts and eggs: She used 2T chocolate flavored flax meal + 5T boiling water (set for 5 mins), almond butter instead of peanut butter, and 3/4 cup honey instead of a whole cup. Then “deflate” it 1/2 way as it rises quite high, and then add 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips.
