Crispy Almond Butter and Chocolate No-Bake Bars

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 0 minutes

Ready in: 20 minutes

Makes: 16 Bars


  • 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips or finely chopped chocolate

  • 2/3 cup full-fat coconut milk

  • 1 cup smooth almond butter

  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

  • 2 cups puffed quinoa (or crisp rice cereal)

  • Flaky sea salt to finish


1. Lightly grease with nonstick spray and line an 8”-square baking pan with two pieces of parchment paper, cut to fit the width of the pan with some overhang on all sides. Set aside.

2. In a bowl, combine the chocolate and coconut milk. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until chocolate mixture is melted and smooth. Pour half of mixture into prepared Ello Baking Dish and tap pan firmly to spread evenly all the way to the corners. Transfer to refrigerator to set.

3. Microwave almond butter in a large bowl for 30 seconds or until it begins to melt and reaches a pourable consistency. While still warm, quickly mix in powdered sugar and puffed quinoa until combined.

4. Spread almond butter mixture over set chocolate, making sure to create an even layer that reaches to the edges. Pour over remaining chocolate mixture (reheating in the microwave if necessary) and tap Ello Baking Dish firmly on the counter to completely cover previous layer. Chill until set.

5. To cut and serve, remove entire candy slab from pan by pulling up on parchment paper overhang. If it resists, use a paring knife to loosen the edges and corners. Cut into 1” x 2” rectangles using a sharp knife.

Bon Appetit!
