Instructions

  • Prepare and measure all the ingredients. Once you are done preheat oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) and line a baking pan with parchment paper. My baking pan measures 9"x6" (23 x 15 cm).
  • Put all wet ingredients into a food processor and mix until smooth.
  • Add all dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) and mix again, just for a few seconds (don't overmix).
  • Now add the dairy-free chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
  • Spoon the batter into the lined baking pan. Top with more chocolate chips or chocolate chunks.
  • Bake in the oven for about 28-35 minutes (it can take some minutes more or less, depending on your oven and the size of your baking dish). I have a gas oven and baked them for exactly 35 minutes. You can insert a toothpick into the middle after 28 minutes. When it comes out dry, it's done!
  • Let cool and cut into bars. Enjoy for breakfast or as a dessert!

Notes

  • Any nut butter like peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter works fine.
  • For a nut-free version use coconut butter or tahini (if you don't mind the slightly bitter taste of tahini). I wouldn't recommend sunflower seed butter as it will turn the bars green unless you leave out the baking powder and baking soda (yes I tried it before, haha).
  • I used Erythritol but you can use any other sweetener, for example, birch sugar (Xylitol), date sugar, coconut sugar, cane sugar, etc.
