This Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Bar recipe are super quick and simple to make. It only has five ingredients and the bars are so rich and decadent with everyone's favorite flavor combination; peanut butter and chocolate!
I've previously mentioned that we have a really awesome team working in our cafeteria at my office. They seriously make some delicious food and are genuinely nice people as well. One of the guys makes the most fantastic desserts. This is a great thing because yum and will likely a terrible thing when I return to work in June because I'm not sure I'll be able to stop eating all of these confections! Every day it's something different and before I left I could not seem to get enough. One such dessert was these amazing gluten-free Peanut Butter Bars and he was gracious enough to allow me to share his recipe with you.
To be honest, when I first tried these, I had no idea they were gluten free. It wasn't until I started picking his brain about the recipe the he told me they were gluten-free. I was floored but it made sense. They didn't have the usual texture of peanut butter cookies, but were super similar.
These Peanut Butter Bars are extremely rich and decadent. They are not for the faint at heart and are definitely not healthy. But sometimes that's how you gotta roll. It's always nice to have a great gluten-free dessert option that doesn't taste like cardboard (in all fairness, gluten-free recipes and products have gotten so much better over the years!). Either way, give these some love. They're so delicious and a little bit naughty, but in the best way possible!
