I had a reader request a recipe for this flavor of larabar. Peanut butter chocolate chip larabars. Since I love all things larabar, I had to try these peanut butter chocolate chip larabars. I still love the Coconut Cream Larabar the best, but this one is pretty good too.
I am more of an almond butter girl myself, but my husband LOVES peanut butter so I know that these will be gobbled up fast. I may try a second batch with almonds. I love recipes like this because they are just so easy.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars
- 2 cups peanuts(I used raw unsalted peanuts)
- 10-12 medjool dates (If you use another kind of date, you may need to add a couple more. The medjool dates are larger.)
- 2-3 T water
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used carob chips. Gluten free use Enjoy Life chips)
- pinch sea salt
- In the food processor, blend the peanuts and salt into a powder.
- Pit the dates and add them in as well.
- If needed, slowly add a bit of water to help the mixture come together.
- Once the dough is formed, line and 8×8 glass baking dish with parchment paper leaving enough room for some paper to stick out the sides.
- Carefully, spoon the dough into the pan evenly. The dough will be very sticky and you may need to wet the spatula a bit.
- Using the extra paper, pack the dough down until it is flat and even.
- Place in the fridge to firm up.
I store them in the fridge. They should keep at least a week if you can get them to last that long!
