These no-bake chocolate almond butter bars are the best bars you can make! They’re gluten free, vegan, and packed with all of your favorite goodies: chocolate, almond butter, almonds, and chai. We love these bars not just for their taste, but because they’re high in protein, naturally flavored, and only 7 ingredients.
The best part about this whole recipe? We’ve teamed up with our friends over at Revival Foods! Revival Foods is a natural, sustainable craft almond butter company. They source their almonds directly from local farmers in Modesto, CA. Flavors like Sea Salt Vanilla, Raw Cacao Coconut, and Hemp Super Seeds are among their amazing product line! This recipe today contains the amazing Cinnamon Chai Spice. These almond butters have no added sugar (4 out of 5 flavors are Whole30 approved), no preservatives, no palm oil, and no GMOs. Oh, and did we mention Revival Foods was women-owned? Read more about Revival & their amazing founder Rachel here!
No-bake is pretty simple: they’re desserts you don’t have to bake! We get the popularity and high demand of no-bake desserts. Oven-baked desserts can be complicated with bake times, setting the right temperatures, and having the right ingredients to produce the best tasting results. It’s the best, easiest, and amazing way to make a quick treat! These treats are usually cooled and settled in the fridge or freezer. Using a nut butter base is common ingredient for no bake desserts. They’re thick enough to form a solid base, and when combined with coconut oil it holds together well!
Cinnamon Chai Almond Butter: Revival’s describes Cinnamon Chai Almond Butter as “containing spices like Vietnamese Cinnamon and Indian Ginger. Your tastebuds won’t be able to tell the difference between a spoonful of this or a sip of your chai tea!” We’re all lovers of chai tea right? Well, how about the best chocolate and chai flavors in one?
Almond Flour: We recommend either almond or oat flour for these bars. They contribute to overall texture and blends perfectly into the batter.
Coconut Oil: Our main binding agent in these bars. Because of the coconut oil, you’ll want to store them in the refrigerator. If they’re left out for too long, the oil starts to soften the base of the bar out of its firm state. And we don’t want that right?!
Maple Syrup: You can substitute agave or for a non vegan option, use honey. This sweetens up your bars with a natural flavor. (for an extra boost, add vanilla extract)
Additional Ingredients: Protein powder. Up the protein by adding 1/4 cup of your go-to protein powder and reducing the almond flour to 1/2 cup. Whether it’s vanilla or chocolate, you can turn these no bake almond butter bars into your perfect protein bar. Raisins/Cranberries/Pretzels/Coconut Shreds/
