Soft Almond Butter Bars with Chocolate Coffee Sauce
Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Bake Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
Almond Butter Granola Bars
- ½ cup whole wheat or gluten free AP flour
- ½ cup quick or rolled oats
- 3 Tablespoons almond butter, we used Jason’s
- 1-2 Tablespoons almond milk
- 1 Tablespoons milled flax
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch sea salt
Chocolate Coffee Sauce
- ½ cup prepared Humani-T Organic Fair Trade Coffee
- ½ cup coconut sugar, or more to taste
- ¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3 Tablespoons dark chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
For the Granola Bars:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, line a cake pan with parchment paper.
- Next, in a medium mixing bowl add all dry ingredients. Make a gap in the center of the dry ingredients, and in the center add all wet ingredients (almond butter, 1 Tablespoon almond milk, maple, vanilla). Mix ingredients together until well combined. Depending on whether your mixture is too wet or dry, add a couple more sprinkles of flour, or add a splash or more of almond milk.
- Pour mixture now into cake pan, and evenly distribute in pan.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Allow cooling before cutting or knife-shaping into bars.
For the Sauce:
Begin by preparing your fresh Humani-T Organic Fair Trade Coffee. Reserve some for sipping on the side . Otherwise, you’ll need ½ cup of it to make the sauce. Next, in a small saucepan, add all ingredients, minus the dark chocolate chips, and stir well. Turn on stove now, and over medium heat bring this to a boil, and then reduce heat and allow to simmer for approximately 4-5 minutes. Add in dark chocolate chips at that time, and stir until melted and well incorporated. Remove from heat. Allow sauce to partially cool before spreading sauce over your freshly baked soft almond butter bars.
