These rich, chewy no-bake bars are perfect for a chocolate fix. They’re full of healthy fats and anti-oxidants, and easy enough for kids to make. Chipotle powder and smoked salt give them an unexpected depth.
When my health-care practitioner recommended that I get off processed sugar in 2006, this recipe saved me. (Yes, technically honey and agave syrups are sugar, but in small amounts I don’t get inflammation symptoms from them.) I make a pan of these, cut into small pieces, freeze them, and then pull one out when I need a hit of chocolate. They’re so rich and satisfying that one or two really does the trick. The recipe is very adaptable, see the notes below.
