For the sunbutter layer:

  • 2 cups cookie crumbs I used Enjoy Life Honey Vanilla Graham Crunchy Cookies
  • ½ cup vegan buttery spread
  • 1 ½ cups sunbutter
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

For the chocolate layer:


  1. Place the cookies or graham crackers in the food processor. To get 2 cups, I used one box of Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies plus 4 extra cookies. Depending on if you use the same cookies, or different ones, or graham crackers, this amount may vary.

  2. Pulse until the cookies become fine crumbs.

  3. Pour the crumbs into a bowl. Melt the vegan buttery spread in the microwave and add it to the cookie crumbs.

  4. Add the sunbutter and powdered sugar and stir well.

  5. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Spread the sunbutter mixture out evenly in the pan, smoothing it with the back of a spoon.

  6. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave on high for one minute. Stir, then microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until smooth and melted.

  7. Add the sunbutter and vegan buttery spread to the chocolate chips and stir until smooth.

  8. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the sunbutter layer and smooth it out.

  9. Refrigerate the bars for at least 2 hours, or until firm.

  10. Slice the bars with a very sharp knife. You can slice them in the pan, or use the parchment to remove the whole block from the pan and slice them on a cutting board.

  11. These are very rich! I recommend slicing them small. Try 5 rows with 5 bars in each row.

Recipe Notes

Store these in the refrigerator - they should stay fresh for at least a week.

You could try freezing them. I think that would work, but I haven't tried it. If you freeze them, store in a ziploc freezer bag.

This makes a lot of bars, and they are rich! It's okay to cut this recipe in half if you prefer. If you do that, I recommend using an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
