Chocolate Covered Toffee Bars

These toffee bars are everyone’s favorite; watch for flying elbows when scraps get put out!  I love that these are well-received by everyone (and they’re shocked when I tell them it’s of course vegan & gluten-free!).

Ingredients (makes 6):

  • 1 stick (1/2 Cup) non-dairy butter
  • 3/4 Cup non-dairy chocolate chips (or crack open a bar, literally 🙂 )
  • 1/2 Cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 Cup potato starch (may replace with tapioca starch)
  • 1/2 Cup light brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Optional: 1/3 Cup chopped & toasted nuts (photographed are hazelnuts bars and pecan bars)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Prepare a 9 x 9 baking pan by draping a piece of parchment paper (make sure it is longer than your tray and drapes over your edge) and spray with non-stick spray.  Melt your non-dairy butter and set aside. In a large bowl combine all of your ingredients and whisk to combine.  Add in your melted non-dairy butter and mix until fully incorporated.
  2. Spread your batter evenly in your baking pan and smooth over the top.  Pop it in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the top starts to golden.  Sprinkle your chocolate chips evenly atop and bake for another 2-3 minutes.  Remove your baking tray from the oven and using a spatula, spread the chocolate out evenly.  Sprinkle with your chopped nuts, if using.  Let cool before cutting into this beauty!
  3. Enjoy eating whole!Photo Dec 05, 2 23 58 PM s Photo Dec 05, 2 24 11 PMs Photo Dec 05, 2 28 10 PMs Photo Dec 07, 11 05 09 AMs
