4-ingredient sunbutter chocolate bars (gluten-free)
These all-natural homemade chocolate bars are a guilt-free treat for you and the kids.
Ever ask yourself how hard it is to make homemade chocolate bars? Here’s your answer – it’s a breeze! And when you make it yourself, you can customize the ingredients to your taste, or to accommodate food allergies. And then there’s the fun of decorating – you can sprinkle these delicious treats with whatever floats your boat – all-natural sprinkles, candied sunflower seeds, toasted nuts, or just leave ‘em sweet and simple like I did!
Warning: these chocolate bars are rich, and you may want to cut them into even smaller squares. Store them in the freezer for best results; they’re more enjoyable partially frozen.
- 1 1/2 cup sunflower butter, divided
- 6 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 cup coconut flour*
- 8 ounces chocolate chunks
Line an 8x8” pan with parchment paper.
Mix 1 cup sunflower butter with maple syrup and coconut flour until smooth. Transfer to prepared pan, using a clean sheet of parchment paper and your hands to smooth out surface and spread mixture to edges of pan.
Combine remaining sunflower butter and chocolate chunks, and microwave for 15-20 seconds at a time, stirring in between. It should take one minute total, or until chips are just melted (don’t overheat or chocolate will scorch).
When chocolate-butter mixture is smooth, pour into pan. Spread to edges, and then freeze for 45 minutes. When partially hardened, sprinkle with chocolate sunflower seeds.
Use a sharp knife to cut into bars or squares.
*If gluten is not a problem, you can sub white whole wheat flour for the coconut flour.
