How to Make Peanut Butter & Chocolate Energy Bars

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 7 steps you must follow to make Peanut Butter & Chocolate Energy Bars in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Line an 8-inch x 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper; let the ends of the paper hang over the edge.
  • Step 2
  • Optional step: For deeper, more peanuty flavor, roast the peanuts before making the bars. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the peanuts on a baking sheet and roast until fragrant and golden, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring once or twice during roasting. Allow to cool slightly before continuing with the recipe.
  • Step 3
  • Combine the peanuts, pitted dates, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse 5 to 6 times to break up the ingredients. Remove the lid and break apart any clumps of dates. Replace the lid and process continuously for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until the ingredients begin to clump together. When you remove the lid, the ingredients may still look a little crumbly (like couscous), but should hold together when pressed in your fist.
  • Step 4
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the chocolate over the peanut-date mixture (reserve the rest of the chocolate). Replace the lid and pulse just 3 or 4 times to incorporate the chocolate.
  • Step 5
  • Transfer the mixture to the baking dish and press it firmly down with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a drinking cup. Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in 15-second bursts in the microwave, stirring between each burst. Pour the melted chocolate over the bars and use a spatula to spread it into an even layer.
  • Step 6
  • Cover the bars and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight, until the bars are firm and the chocolate is set. With the bars still in the dish, use a sharp knife to cut them into 15 bars. Bars can be stored in the dish or individually wrapped. Keep refrigerated for firmer texture or unrefrigerated for a softer texture. Bars will keep for about a month refrigerated or for about a week if unrefrigerated.
  • Step 7
  • For softer icing, stir 1/4 cup peanut butter into the melted chocolate before spreading it over the bars.
