Vegan Chocolate Crunch Bars

Vegan Chocolate Crunch Bars

Recipe by Bailey Campbell

Forward by Iron Vegan

Crunchy, crispy, smooth, and creamy with the perfect peanut butter-to-chocolate ratio. A sweet treat sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings, these bars will be your new favourite dessert (and you’ll want to make extra for sharing!).

Loaded with protein, flavour, and healthy fats, these bars can help fuel your day.

Peanuts are a functional food which is why we’ve used peanut butter. Nutrient-dense, peanut butter contains healthy fats, plant proteins, magnesium, potassium, and more.1 To boost the protein content for an even more satisfying treat, we’ve included Sprouted Protein. Our plant-based protein powder with a smooth and creamy texture, it has up to 22 grams of vegan protein per serving. The chocolate flavour pairs perfectly with peanut butter for the ultimate combination.

You only need 6 ingredients and 10 minutes to make this tasty treat.
