Deliciously decadent layered brownie bars with rich chocolate, tart cherries, and creamy peanut flavor throughout! Gluten-free and only 5 ingredients. These bars are super easy to make and perfect for sharing with friends!
This bar lover has FINALLY found a bar brand I have yet to try! Can you believe it!?
Given the fact that I eat multiple bars a day, you’d think that there isn’t a variety out there that I haven’t had. Well you, and I, would be wrong!
Recently, Santa Barbara Bar reached out to me about trying their products. Seeing as I LOVE California and bars, in general, I couldn’t turn them down. Especially after seeing their flavors like:
and, my favorite, Peanut Chocolate Cherry
Irresistible in my opinion!
The bars are gluten-free and naturally sweetened with brown rice syrup. They are like soft-baked granola bars full of big chunks of superfood ingredients. They were made to provide people from all walks of life with a TASTY, nutrient-dense snack option while on the go or even as a meal replacement!

As I said above, my absolute FAVORITE bar was the Peanut Chocolate Cherry! I loved the mix of sweet and salty flavor, the contrast of the tart cherries and rich chocolate, and overall how satisfying it was. I ate one for a snack multiple days in a row…and then I got hit with a little baking inspiration. 🙂
I’ve baked with bars in the past, so I knew I could come up with something worthy of sharing with you all. I ended up with a delicious, nutritious dessert that you can feel good about eating to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Watch out world…here comes a mouthful! Say hello to my Layered Peanut Chocolate Cherry Brownie Bars.
