Vegan Tiffin Bars

Naturally sweetened, 7-ingredient bars that are loaded with almonds, raisins and crunchy biscuits!


  • Yield: 15 Small Bars

Ingredients

Tiffin Bars

  • 2 and 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (1/3 cup if you want it more chocolatey)
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers (or other vegan biscuits)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup roasted almonds, roughly chopped

Chocolate topping

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter

Instructions

Tiffin Bars

  1. Place the pitted dates, peanut butter and cocoa powder in the bowl of a food processor. Process until a sticky paste forms and all the dates are puréed, about 1 minute.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the crushed graham crackers, raisins and chopped almonds. Mix using your hands until everything is combined and the add-ins are uniformly distributed.
  3. Line a brownie pan with parchment paper (I used one half of a 9×9-inch pan to get thicker bars). Transfer the mixture to the pan, cover with a sheet of parchment paper and press down firmly using your hands or the bottom of a glass. Make sure everything is packed and flat.

Chocolate topping

  1. Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler. Once melted, stir in the peanut butter.
  2. Pour the melted chocolate over the tiffin base. Place in the refrigerator until set, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator and cut into about 15 squares. Tiffin bars will keep in a airtight container at room temperature for about a week.

Notes

Feel free to use peanuts, pecans, or even pistachio instead of almonds.
For the biscuits, you can use pretzels instead of graham crackers.
