Gluten Free Peanut Butter Bar Cookies with Chocolate (Recipe)

Cookies.
When you're more or less living in lockdown (as we're all doing right now due to the pandemic), sometimes you just need some cookies!

And personally, I can't get enough of these peanut butter and chocolate creations - and the recipe is super simple so ... well, let's just say I've been making them a little too often!

So, for those of you who've been asking as well as those of you who didn't know to ask, here is the recipe:

Peanut Butter Bar Cookies with Chocolate Topping



Cookie bars:
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup Demerara sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla

Stir everything together with a wooden spoon until well combined. Spread out in a large pan (9x13 or so). It will be relatively thin and that's all good.
Bake at 180 C for 20-22 minutes. Turn off oven.

Topping:
1 bar bittersweet chocolate. If you want it extra chocolate-y, use 2 bars. You could totally do this with milk chocolate if you prefer, but I like to keep my baking pareve (dairy allergy!)!

Break the bar up and put it on top of the baked cookie layer (uncut). Return the pan to your still-warm (but off) oven. Leave it in the warm oven for about 8-10 min. Remove from oven when the chocolate is warm and spreadable. Use a silicone spatula to spread the chocolate evenly on top of the cookie layer. Allow to cool slightly before cutting into cookie bars.

Cool further before you eat them.

Enjoy!

Stock up for great prices: Deals on personal care products

(this post contains affiliate links. When you click and make a purchase, I may get paid a commission. Thanks in advance for your support)

Do you miss Amazon? I sure do!


Well, for now the days of Amazon free shipping to Israel are behind us, and while back then I advised buying deodorant and other personal care products from them, now it's time to acknowledge that we're back to where we used to be... buying locally.
But it's really not so bad. I found a whole bunch of deals for you - assuming you're willing to buy deo or whatever it is for the next few months all at once, these prices are not like regular store prices!



Here's what I found on Groo:

6 Dove for women deodorant spray bottles, for 59 NIS (plus 15.90 Boxit shipping) - choose which scent is your favorite!

6 Nivea roll-on for men, for 69 NIS (plus 15.90 Boxit shipping)

6 Dove roll-on for women, for 75 NIS, (plus 15.90 Boxit shipping) - choose which scent is your favorite!

6 bottles of Dove liquid moisturizing soap (we're all washing our hands so often, we definitely need the gentle stuff!) for just 49 NIS (plus 15.90 Boxit shipping)

10 tubes of Colgate Herbal White toothpaste, for 99 NIS (and free shipping!)

Oral-B Vitality Electric toothbrush, for 89 NIS (and free shipping!)

Important Note: I don't know what will happen with Boxit Shipping if there is a full lockdown. I imagine there will be ways to get out packages, but I just don't know for sure what will be. I'm still shopping online, and assuming it will get worked out. Hopefully Boxit will find a way to get our packages to us even if there's a lockdown!



Deal: Sanitizing Wipes!
