Ingredients

For the peanut butter fudge base

  • 1 cup crushed peanut butter cookies measured after crushing
  • 1/4 cup crispy rice cereal of choice
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 T gluten free flour of choice
  • 3/4 cup gluten free oat bran
  • 1/4 - 1 cup dairy free milk of choice I used blue diamond almond breeze*

For the frosting

  • 1 package of peanut butter chips I used Trader Joe's**

Instructions

  • Line a 9 x 9 baking tray with parchment paper/cookie sheet and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the crushed peanut butter cookies, crispy rice cereal, gluten free flour, gluten free oat bran and mix very well. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the peanut butter. Pour the peanut butter over the dry mixture and mix very well until fully incorporated.
  • If the mixture is crumbly, using a tablespoon at a time, add the milk of choice until a firm batter is formed. Once it is, pour batter in the lined baking tray. Set aside to cool (you can put it in the freezer if you wish)
  • Melt the peanut butter chips or make the vegan frosting linked below and top the peanut butter fudge base completely. Refrigerate or freeze immediately until firm. Once firm, cut into bars and enjoy!

Notes

* Only use the milk if mixture is still crumbly.
