These amazing vegan coffee toffee bars are like a cookie but in bar form. They’re loaded with almonds and chocolate chips and they have a subtle coffee flavor — perfect for coffee lovers, but not strong enough to turn away coffee haters!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Earth Balance buttery sticks, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons instant coffee granules or ground espresso
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life minis)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar using a stand mixer, add in coffee and almond extract.
  3. Add dry ingredients into the mixer and mix until just blended.
  4. Lastly, add in almonds and chocolate chips. If needed, use your hands to toss the dough and press chocolate chips and almonds in.
  5. Grease a 9X13 pan and pour the batter into the pan. Batter is thick so use a spoon or your hands to spread batter evenly across pan and press it down.
  6. Bake at 350° for about 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let cool for 20-30 minutes, cut and enjoy!


*I haven’t tried these with gluten-free flour, but I bet an all-purpose gluten-free flour would work.
