Peanut Butter Crunch Bars
Ingredients for the base:
- 1 cup peanut butter 275g crunchy or smooth both work
- 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 50 g puffed rice (I use Kallo)
Ingredients for the chocolate topping:
- 4 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 25 g cacao powder
- 1 Pinch salt
- To a large mixing bowl add the peanut butter, melted coconut oil and maple syrup and mix
- Add the puffed rice and mix thoroughly
- Line a small baking tin with baking paper and pour in the peanut butter mix so its evenly spread and place in the freezer for 10 minutes
- Meanwhile using a Bain Marie add the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and pinch of salt and stir
- Slowly add in the 25g of cacao powder and mix until smooth
- Remove the peanut butter mix from the freezer and evenly pour over the chocolate sauce
- Place back in the freezer for 20-30 minutes until firm
- Finally just simply slice into squares and they're ready to serve
This will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5-7 daysIF you have a peanut allergy, try using another nut butter instead such as almond.
Don’t like nut butter? These try my Chocolate Cheesecake Squares instead
