These No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars with Chocolate Chips are seriously out of this world. I can’t stop and I won’t stop. They’re so addictive! I think it’s the pinch of sea salt that really seals the deal. That and the peanut butter and chocolate chips, obviously! These bars don’t require any baking, they’re refined-sugar free, take just a few minutes to prepare and make an amazing treat anytime of day.
No-Bake Double Chocolate Perfection
So, 6 ingredients, no baking, double chocolate, peanut butter, dates, sea salt…hear anything you like? I thought you might. I love how simple these bars are. You only need 6 simple ingredients to make them:
dairy-free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)
That’s it! You might just have all the ingredients on hand already. They take just a few minutes to make in a food processor or blender. Once the dough is ready, press them in to a pan and you’re done! Then the hard part…waiting for them to firm up in the freezer. But don’t you worry…go ahead and sneak a few bites of the dough.

Peanut Butter Life
I will never, ever stop eating peanut butter. It just makes me so happy! It’s usually a part of my breakfast, whether it’s a spoonful added to chia and berry pudding, mixed into overnight oats or blended into a big, fruit smoothie.
Peanut Butter for Dessert
Peanut Butter is also a must-have when it comes to desserts at my house. Of course, there are my favourite, vegan chocolate peanut butter cups, but my favourite quick, go-to dessert is 1/2 a banana topped with Adams and a few dairy-free chocolate chips. Heated up is even better!
Peanut Butter Snack Time
For snacking, I love the classic PB with sliced apple, “ants on a log”, sliced banana sprinkled with hemp seeds and a spoonful of PB – it’s always a welcome ingredient in my homemade energy bars.
Natural peanut butter makes a great addition to any healthy, natural kitchen. It’s a staple at my house that probably gets used more than any other ingredient in the pantry. It’s so versatile it can be used in everything from curries, to salad dressings, sauces, dips and spreads, to homemade bars, baking, pancakes and more!
