These delicious No Bake Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars are the ultimate treat. They're made with an egg free (and dairy-free!) cookie dough base and a chocolate peanut butter topping. They're a naturally vegan dessert and totally addictive.
1/4cupmilk of your choiceI use almond, but any kind will do
Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. In a large bowl, whisk the sugars with the melted coconut oil, water, and chia seeds. Add the dry ingredients all at once and stir till combined. Press into the prepared pan and place it in your fridge.
In a medium sized bowl, beat the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and melted chocolate chips until it resembles batter. Spoon this on top of the cookie dough and smooth out using a spatula. Place the pan back into the fridge.
Heat the milk in a small pan over medium heat until it begins to steam. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate chips. Let the pan sit for a few moments to melt the chocolate chips then whisk to combine. Drizzle the top of the bars with the chocolate.
Cut the bars into 24 pieces - see notes. Store the cookie dough bars, covered, in your fridge.
These cookie dough bars are best cut into 24 pieces, rather than the 12 pieces like in the pictures. They're a deliciously rich dessert.I've sprinkled a little powdered sugar and cocoa powder on top, but this is really only for aesthetics and does not affect the taste.
