These bars are not just a delightful dessert but a testament to the fact that you can satisfy your sweet cravings while staying on track with your Weight Watchers journey. Join us on a culinary adventure as we delve into the art of crafting these delectable bars, from the carefully selected ingredients to the step-by-step instructions that ensure a perfect balance of flavors.

Ingredients:

For the Peanut Butter Base:

  • 1 cup powdered peanut butter
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt

For the Chocolate Topping:

  • 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

For Garnish:

  • Crushed sugar-free Reese’s peanut butter cups (optional)

Instructions:

Step 1: Preparing the Peanut Butter Base

In a large mixing bowl, combine powdered peanut butter, rolled oats, unsweetened almond milk, sugar-free maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix until a thick, dough-like consistency is formed. This base provides a wholesome and flavorful foundation for the bars.

Step 2: Pressing into the Pan

Line an 8×8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang for easy removal. Press the peanut butter mixture evenly into the pan, creating a smooth and compact layer. Place it in the refrigerator to set while preparing the chocolate topping.

Step 3: Crafting the Chocolate Topping

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt sugar-free chocolate chips and creamy peanut butter together in 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. The addition of peanut butter to the chocolate not only enhances the flavor but also contributes to a luscious, velvety texture.

Step 4: Pouring and Spreading

Remove the pan from the refrigerator and pour the melted chocolate-peanut butter mixture over the peanut butter base. Use a spatula to spread it evenly, ensuring every corner is covered. The glossy chocolate topping is a delightful contrast to the nutty base.

Step 5: Optional Garnish

For an extra layer of indulgence, sprinkle crushed sugar-free Reese’s peanut butter cups on top of the chocolate layer. This optional garnish adds a burst of sweetness and a satisfying crunch.

Step 6: Chilling and Setting

Place the pan back in the refrigerator and allow the bars to chill for at least 2-3 hours or until firm. This ensures that the layers set properly, making them easy to slice into perfectly portioned bars.

Step 7: Slicing and Serving

Once fully set, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the bars from the pan. Place them on a cutting board and, using a sharp knife, slice into squares. The bars are now ready to be served and enjoyed.
