Chocolate Chip Bars

It's been a little bit since I had a good dessert. I saw this recipe today and it looked so easy and yummy-it was on!
Again, I love Chocolate Covered Katie and her healthy, vegan dessert website. Even if you aren't vegan, she offers healthier versions of many, many desserts. I have made so many of her recipes and loved them all! Yet again, she does not disappoint! :)



From Chocolate Covered Katie's Chocolate Chip Everything Bars

Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup of oats
  2. 3/4 tsp of baking powder
  3. 1/8 tsp baking soda
  4. 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  5. 1/4 cup of shredded coconut
  6. 1 can of garbanzo or white beans, rinsed and drained
  7. 1/4 cup of raw sugar
  8. 2 stevia packets or 1/4 cup more sugar
  9. 3 Tbsp of oil (I used coconut)
  10. 2 Tbsp of applesauce
  11. 2 tsp of vanilla
  12. 5 Tbsp of non-dairy chocolate chips (whole foods vegan chocolate chips or Ghiradelli Semi-Sweet Chips will both work)
  13. 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
  14. 1/2 cup of dried fruit (I used 1/4 cup dried cranberries and 1/4 cup raisins)

Method


Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 pan. Combine first 11 ingredients in a food processor or very high powered blender (I used the Ninja). Process until very smooth then stir in remaining ingredients. Transfer batter to the pan and using a spatula or spoon spread batter evenly over bottom of pan.  Bake 30 minutes and let cool completely before cutting and serving. Enjoy!



Of course, serve with banana cream!
