Chocolate Pudding Topped Cookie Dough Bars

I was searching online trying to come up with a recipe to make using carob powder. It was my first time using carob, so I wanted to make something fun. I was in the mood for chocolate pudding, but since I wanted to post the recipe here, I didn’t think just a simple pudding would be unique enough. Enter my crazy and delicious concoction of chocolate pudding topped cookie dough bars. The bars smell like smores when baked, and are a little gooey and raw on the inside, which is okay because there are no eggs.

Adapted from and inspired by Paleo Diet Lifestyle’s Chocolate Pudding recipe and my own Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars recipe.

Ingredients For Cookie Dough Bars:
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot powder (or a starch)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/3 cup melted ghee (or butter or coconut oil)
1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Ingredients For Pudding:
2 avocados
3 tablespoons carob powder(or cocoa or cacao)
3 tablespoon almond milk (or another dairy-free milk)
3 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract

Making It:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. For the cookie dough bars — Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another. Then combine the two. Add in the nuts and stir.
  3. For the pudding — Put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Press the cookie dough bars mixture into a 8×11 baking dish. Spread the pudding onto the top of the dough.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Once it starts to smell a little bit like burnt smores, it’s done. If you bake it any longer, the pudding layer will be too burnt. The cookie dough part will be a little bit raw, but that’s exactly how you want it. So good!
