Fall! It’s finally here! Or so the calendar indicates. It’s still muggy and hovering around 90 degrees in my corner of the world, but I don’t care; I’m ready for baking season, no matter if I am still donning shorts and flip-flops.

Anyone up for some peanut butter chocolate chip cookie brittle?

Healthy Highlights of Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

In addition to being crispy, crunchy and scrumptious, this quick & easy, lunchbox-friendly treat is also:

  • grain-free
  • gluten-free
  • vegan (no eggs, no dairy)
  • can be made with your favorite nut or seed butter
  • ready from start to finish in under an hour

You need only 6 familiar ingredients, one bowl, & one spatula or wooden spoon to stir up the batter–no hand mixer required (hooray for minimal cleanup!)

After a solid 30-60 seconds (max) of stirring, simply spread the batter on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and sprinkle with a few tablespoons of chocolate chips. I tried several thicknesses for the brittle, and right around 1/4-inch thickness worked perfectly in terms of even baking and overall crispness.

Bake the whole darn thing at a low temperature (300F) for even baking (and avoiding over-browning) and let the brittle cool on the cookie sheet. They only remaining tasks are to break up the brittle into pieces and eat!

I used stevia in the recipe to keep the overall sugar content low, as well as keep this brittle in the world of healthy snacking (yes, it packs well for long bike rides, and is great for a pre-workout nosh), but you can use coconut sugar or brown sugar instead (the overall sugar will still be relatively low compared to most cookies).

I used a 1/4 sheet size sheet pan, but if you are using a regular size cookie sheet or sheet pan, the dough will only cover about half of the area. Focus on an even, overall thickness of the dough, and don’t worry about spreading into a perfect rectangle, or any particular shape. It’s going to be broken into pieces soon enough!

Happy, healthy, snacking everyone!
