Ever since trying Goodie Girl’s Magical Animal Crackers in my lighter banana pudding I have been absolutely hooked. They are essentially a gluten free, cleaner version of my favorite childhood snack – what’s not to love?? And I am a firm believer that all foods can fit in a healthy lifestyle so there is no reason to cut out something that makes you happy. I don’t go a day without dessert myself! In particular – chocolate desserts.
So that is why I decided to make these NO BAKE chocolate fudge cookie bars. I love a good no bake dessert, like my cacao espresso no bake cookies or this no bake fruit tart. It makes life so much easier! And it is nice for these summer months when you don’t want to turn on your oven and make your entire house hotter than it already is!
Let’s Make Some Chocolate Fudge Cookie Bars!
This recipe is SUPER easy. For the crust all you need are these cookies and some dates! If you don’t think the crust is sticky enough, just add more dates and pulse until you do.
I used cashew butter in this recipe and I really think it makes a difference. Cashew butter is probably the creamiest nut butter I have ever tried. BUT that being said I am sure it will be just as great with any nut butter that you have on hand!
Lastly, you can make the topping without stevia first and then decide if you want to add it in. I personally think it tasted fine without it, but I know some people like sweeter treats! And stevia is one of the safest options when it comes to sweeteners (you could also use coconut sugar, maple syrup, or agave).Print
