Here it is almost Christmas. Maybe you’ve just gotten invited to one more quick get-together and feel you should bring something . . . but what?
Here’s a no-bake recipe for a fairly healthy treat you can whip up in a few minutes and stick in the fridge. It’s a take-off of a Canadian candy bar known for it’s dark chocolate, peanuts, and deep toffee flavor.
Eatmore Bar Recipe
1 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 cup raw honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fair-trade organic cocoa
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup coconut
Melt the peanut butter and honey together, add the salt, then stir in the cocoa. I find sifting the cocoa helps to prevent lumps. Then add everything else in and stir it up. It will be very thick and glommed together in the bottom of your pot.
Grease a 9×9 or 12×7 baking pan with butter or lard. Dump in the semi-liquid mix and press it flat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or more.
Cut into squares. Enjoy guilt-free! You don’t even need to wait until its chilled. Apparently, you don’t even need to wait until its spread flat!
