One of the great things about baked bars and brownies is that you won’t feel too guilty eating them. Pulling out a fork and tucking it into a slice of cheesecake at 2:30 pm will earn you a certain reputation at the office, but unwrapping a delicious brownie, blondie or Nanaimo bar, well that’s completely acceptable. Especially during the holidays.

So preheat the oven and get ready to feast on these day-time-approved (but also nighttime acceptable) baked bars and brownies.

Peanut Butter Brownies

Desiree Nielsen, host of The Urban Vegetarian, put together this delicious, vegan-friendly brownie recipe that leans on the plant-based fats in peanut butter and coconut oil instead of butter. They’re tasty, easy to make and healthier than your average treat.

Check out the video above for a peek at the all the ooey-gooey deliciousness.

S’mores Bars

Canadians just love s’mores. When it’s too chilly for a bonfire in the backyard, let the oven do the work and reap your drool-worthy reward in bar form, with a thick graham cracker crumb crust and a melted marshmallow topping. It’s best enjoyed warm.

 

Apple Skor Bars

If you’re one of those folks who reaches for toffee-flavoured anything, these apple Skor bars are sure to send your taste buds into overdrive. It’s like a regular Skor candy bar, but warm and melty with a hint of apple flavour. You’re welcome.

 

Salted Pretzel Nanaimo Bars

If you’re a fan of Canada’s pride and joy, the Nanaimo bar, you’re going to love this crunchy twist on the classic. This recipe takes the sweet richness of a Nanaimo bar and adds the beautiful saltiness of pretzels. ‘Tis the season for dessert mashups. Get after it!

 

Caramel Corn Bars

Speaking of delicious food mashups, have you ever wished desperately for a way to perfectly combine your movie popcorn and your movie candy? Well, even if you haven’t we would highly recommend this popcorn/chocolate/peanut butter/caramel extravaganza.
