Raw Vegan Peanut Butter Bars

Got a Craving for Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy But Don’t Want the Empty Calories? Try these yummy AND healthy treats!

These little beauties are not only sweet and decadent tasting, they’re packed with nutrition! I made up a batch for a neighborhood gathering last weekend and didn’t have any leftover to bring home. They’re quick and perfect for hot days since you don’t need to run your oven.

Peanut Butter Bars:

3 cups raw peanuts (not roasted or salted)
1/2 tsp salt
20 dates
1/2 tsp vanilla

In food processor with s-shaped blade, blend all  ingredients until they form a sticky dough ball.  Spread dough ball evenly in 9″ x 9″ pan.


1 ripe avocado
½ cup agave nectar
½ cup cocoa powder

In food processor with s-shaped blade, blend  all frosting ingredients until smooth. Spread frosting on top of peanut butter bars. Refrigerate for 15 – 30 minutes so they’re easier to work with. Cut into 1″ squares since a small bite is pretty satisfying.

Eat right away, or refrigerate to eat later. Makes one 9” x 9” pan.

    just wondering about raw peanuts, a few things come to mind and if you wouldn’t mind educating me- 1. aflotoxin in raw peanuts? 2.raw peanuts…isn’t there some health hazard with that? 3. organic vs conventional? 4. sourcing?

    This recipe looks delightful, and I hope to hear back from you. thank you.
