These Vegan No-Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Bars are reminiscent in taste to Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, but in crispy bar form. Made with only 7 ingredients, take just 10 minutes to make and are dairy-free and gluten-free!
One of the yummiest combos ever is chocolate and mint. It is so decadent, yet refreshing at the same time. I mean, Thin Mint Cookies are life and those cookies are incredibly popular with readers, but these bars are a totally different take on that cookie.
This recipe is actually a revamp on a super old recipe here on the blog, from 6 years ago! I just slightly changed the recipe, but it is so old, most readers don't even know about it and it also needed some major new photos and to be brought back to life. So, here we are! Plus, the last 4 posts have been savory, so I think we all needed something sweet!
These are not for those wanting one of those superfood healthy type of granola bars. NOPE. These are rich, decadent, sweet, crunchy and the kind you make for your guests or friends who think eating vegan is crazy boring or bland. Desserts should taste like dessert. In other words, these are so rich, even half a bar is satisfying.
How to Make No-Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Bars
Add the melted almond butter, agave and cocoa powder and salt to a small pot and bring to a simmer. Cook 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in the mint and vanilla extracts. Pour this mixture over the rice cereal and chocolate chips.
Stir until it is well mixed and thick. It will start to firm up quickly, so move fast.
Add the mixture to the lined pan and spread out evenly.
Use a silicone spatula to help spread it out, as a spoon doesn't work well. Then place a piece of parchment paper over it and press down firm and hard and smooth out the edges until the surface is flat.
Gently peel off the paper and place in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
Slice into bars.
Enjoy the delicious, crispy, minty, chocolate heaven.
I've served these many times to friends and at parties and they are always a hit, especially for those who love mint and chocolate together!
