This recipe was sent to me from Oryana Coop in Traverse City. This Coop happens to be one of my very favorite in America. The last time we were there in September we bought Vegan Peanut Butter Bar this and were blown away by how good it tasted. Seriously it is perfection! They have over 600 fabulous recipes on their website here: http://www.oryana.coop/recipes
The Best Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge Bars
1 1/3 pounds vegan butter (Spectrum Naturals Organic Vegetable Shortening)
1/2 cup cane sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon local peanut butter
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup soy milk or almond
1/3 cup local peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon agave syrup
Whisk together flour and baking soda in a small bowl– set aside. Cream butter and sugar in a
medium bowl. Add vanilla and peanut butter and beat until smooth– scraping sides of bowl.
Add peanuts and flour to butter mixture and mix until incorporated.
Form dough into 4 balls and flatten slightly. Place 2 X 2 in a 5” X 7” greased baking dish. Bake in
a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes. Rotate and bake another 10 minutes. Remove from oven
and cool completely.
For the fudge toping, heat all ingredients in a double boiler until chocolate chips are melted.
Whisk until smooth and creamy with a nice sheen. Spread fudge topping over cooled bars. Re-
frigerate until topping is set. Cut into 12 pieces.
