Got a Craving for Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy But Don’t Want the Empty Calories? Try these yummy AND healthy treats!
These little beauties are not only sweet and decadent tasting, they’re packed with nutrition! I made up a batch for a neighborhood gathering last weekend and didn’t have any leftover to bring home. They’re quick and perfect for hot days since you don’t need to run your oven.
Peanut Butter Bars:
3 cups raw peanuts (not roasted or salted)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
In food processor with s-shaped blade, blend all ingredients until they form a sticky dough ball. Spread dough ball evenly in 9″ x 9″ pan.
1 ripe avocado
½ cup agave nectar
½ cup cocoa powder
In food processor with s-shaped blade, blend all frosting ingredients until smooth. Spread frosting on top of peanut butter bars. Refrigerate for 15 – 30 minutes so they’re easier to work with. Cut into 1″ squares since a small bite is pretty satisfying.
Eat right away, or refrigerate to eat later. Makes one 9” x 9” pan.
