No Bake Ghirardelli Chocolate Chews

No Bake Ghirardelli Chocolate Chews
If you’re in a hurry and don’t feel like pulling out the mixer then you will love these.  Other than the below ingredients, you will only need a pot on a stove.  Easy to make and very delicious.  And you will get plenty of chews.  This recipe makes around 60 chocolate chews.

2 cups organic sugar
1⁄2 cup  Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks or unsalted butter (for non-vegan version)
1⁄2 cup full fat milk such as almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey (for non-vegan version)
1 cup Ghirardelli Bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1⁄4 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped almonds (walnuts or pecans may also be used)


Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Bars

Creamy, chunky, sweet and salty.  These bars are no-bake, clean eating, and I made them vegan.  If you don’t follow a vegan diet, you can use regular butter in place of the vegan sticks.

6 tablespoon Earth Balance Vegan Buttery sticks, melted
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 ounces whole wheat pretzels, crushed (about 1 cup of crumbs)
2/3 cup organic creamy peanut butter
1 cup organic confectioners’ sugar, sifted (I made my own.  Here is the recipe)

For chocolate topping:
3/4 cup Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips
1 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
coarsely chopped whole wheat pretzels
