Celiac.com 03/25/2017 – Looking for a reasonably healthy snack for the kids, or an easy way to make a hit at your next gathering? These classic peanut butter bars are just like they used to serve in school; except they’re gluten-free. Yes, that’s a good thing.
- 1½ cups gluten-free graham cracker crumbs (I use Kinnikinnick Crumbs – Graham Style Gluten Free)
- 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1½ cups peanut butter
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
Combine gluten-free graham crumbs, sugar and peanut butter and mix well.
Add melted butter and mix well.
Press mixture evenly into a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave or in double boiler.
Spread melted chocolate over peanut butter mixture.
Chill until the chocolate sets, but is not totally hard, then cut into bars.
