Great choccy snacks (with benefits) for pre / post-workout or morning afternoon tea. Super filling & also gluten-free & refined sugar-free, with plenty of plant protein, fibre, antioxidants & vitamins & minerals. So quick & easy to make a big batch.
90mL of coconut oil or water
Approx 150g of quality peanut butter (I like Pics or Mayvers or 100% fresh ground peanut butter from a health food store).
Approx 1 cup of any yummy crunchy Gluten-free granola that you like.
Some whole toasted peanuts/almonds/hazelnuts (whatever nuts you have on hand for extra protein & crunch).
Into a large bowl tip all your ingredients.
Mix/squash everything together evenly with clean hands & press firmly into paper-lined baking trays (I use a glass jar to help roll/squash the mix evenly & smoothly).
Chop/separate the flattened mix to make ‘sticks’ or fingers that will snap apart easily once solid, using an egg flip or BBQ tool to just press a rough line into the mix.
Place the tray in the freezer until set solid, then snap into sticks & share with (or hide from) your family!
Makes stacks of sticks (approx 1kg)!
Thank you to Jeanie for this recipe!
