Healthy peanut butter bars
Updated: Feb 8
Last week I posted about peanut butter brownie bars, but this time I have a much healthier version. You'll find these other ones here: https://www.bokkal.com/post/peanut-butter-brownie-bars
I am really excited to share with you this delicious peanut butter bars recipe, because they're healthy, easy to prepare and rich in flavor.
You will need only a few ingredients and there is absolutely no need for an oven.
With a food processor, a fridge and freezer you'll get the job done.
A short while ago I made homemade peanut butter for the first time and absolutely loved it, especially the amount of options you have in preparing other dishes with it. Find out how to do this yourself by visiting the following link:
You will need the following ingredients:
* 200g roasted peanuts
* 1 cup oat flour (just grind some oats yourself in your food processor beforehand)
* 1/2 cup honey (you can also replace this with maple or agave syrup)
* 1/2 cup almond milk, just to go easy on your machine.
* 125g dark sugar free chocolate
* Some melted butter to grease your baking sheets
Step one is to grind the peanuts like as if you were to prepare homemade peanut butter. This time though, don't go that far and stop grinding when you have a crumbly, yet dense texture like you see in the pictures.
Then add the other ingredients (except the chocolate and butter) and blitz some more.
You would have become a nice texture, not too liquid nor too solid, just enough to make a cake base for example.
Add the mixture to a buttered oven dish (I use baking sheets because it's easier to remove before cutting them later into bars) and press well to leave it airtight. Now place this into your freezer for half an hour, it can harden more while you go to step two.
Step two is to melt your chocolate using a Bain Marie, basically melting the chocolate in a bowl above a hot pot of boiling water.
Tip: if you use a little double cream, you'll get a smoother, less hardened chocolate topping.
Now remove step one from the freezer and add a nice layer of that melted chocolate on top and freeze in for another half an hour.
Easy right? Now you can remove the cake from the baking dish and try to cut into even pieces, I still need some practice on that but they taste the same. 😋
