Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars

Cookie dough as a cake?  

I know right? I’d never thought about it before AND with Peanut Butter!

To be honest I’m not a peanut butter fan – on it’s own – but OMG it’s so good in cakes and even better in this recipe, lathered with chocolate.

This recipe is so simple which I found, however I have put my own twist to it which means it’s got minimal ingredients and ingredients you can find (which I love!) and no baking….so it’s raw, delicious and easy!

Have a go and let me know what you think.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups of plain flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. golden syrup
  • 2 and 1/2 Tbsp.sunflower oil
  • 5 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate
  • For the topping:
  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate
  • 2 Tbsp.  peannut butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp. vegan margarine

What to do:

  1. Put the plain flour in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix the golden syrup, sunflower oil, peanut butter, and vanilla in a bowl.
  3. Put your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients, and mix it all up. Add your chocolate and give it a good old mix – it should turn into a dough like mixture (funnily enough!)
  4. Line a 8″ square pan with baking paper. Press your dough into the pan, and flatten with your hands. The put into the freezer for 20 minutes (don’t forget it like I usually do!)

To make the topping:

  1. Melt your chocolate, peanut butter, and vegan margarine in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals or in a pan but only on a low heat and mix to combine.
  2. Then carefully pour your chocolate over your cookie dough, and place in the fridge to set (shouldn’t take more than an hour)
  3. Cut into squares, and store in an air tight container in the fridge (if it’s a little warm outside).

Easy and lovely!
