peanut butter squares

Hey everyone, I hope you had a safe and family-filled Easter weekend (assuming your religious beliefs align with Easter).

Today I wanted to share a dessert recipe that’s like crack to anyone who loves the combo of chocolate and peanut butter: Gluten Free Coconut Peanut Butter Squares. Exercising and eating healthy is all fine and good, but sometimes you need to eat something that’s a guilty pleasure.

There’s a ton of peanut butter dessert recipes out there, but I have a couple variations in my recipe that makes it a little unique. To make it gluten free, I like to use Schar gluten free Honeygrams. They have a great texture and go well with the sweet dessert. I also like to use a fresh ground peanut butter. It makes the dessert a less sweet, and you can taste the peanuts better when there’s only one ingredient in the butter. I also love to use a blend of coconut oil and butter. Neither are the healthiest fats, but I like to use coconut oil in some cooking and desserts to diversify the types of unsaturated fats.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
