Brownie Bars with Peanut Butter Frosting

Last night I made the most amazing brownie bars! I got the original recipe from this blog and changed it around a little. These bars make the perfect afternoon snack, or pre workout snack!

Brownie Bars with Peanut Butter Frosting

  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 1/4 cup pitted dates (I used Sunsweet pre-chopped)
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp water
  • 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp almond milk

Place all ingredients except last 3 in food processor (I had to do mine in 2 batches because I have a small one). Blend until all the crumbles stick together. Place plastic wrap into loaf pan and pour in brownie mixture, pressing firmly and evenly into the pan. Mix the last 3 ingredients well, and then spread the frosting over the brownies. Put the brownies into the fridge until they harden a bit (I let mine sit overnight), and then use the plastic wrap to pop the brownies out of the pan! I cut mine into 10 brownies. They are 120 calories a piece, and they are so filling and delicious!

Enjoy! 🙂
