Crunchy, Nutty and Full of Love
First up, one of our more regular peanut butter bakes. This recipe brings together a few wholesome ingredients, making them one of the healthier ways to get your peanut butter fix. They’re oaty, crumbly, super peanuty and packed with slow releasing energy. When a batch of these are around, the children get a more substantial snack at break-time and I get a decent re-fuel after exercise. Either way, I am all over the benefits of this kind of snack.
To make 12 of these simple peanut snacks you will need:
- 120g oats
- 100g tahini
- 100g crunchy peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
This is a low faff, easy to make recipe:
- Get your ingredients together, plus baking tray and spatula and preheat the oven to 150 degrees F (fan setting).
- Mix everything together and press down in a baking tray or ceramic dish. Try to get the mixture to a fairly equal depth of around 1.5cm. If you don’t fill the whole tray don’t worry, the mixture will hold together well and keep its form. Just try to keep a straight edge.
- Leave in the for around 20 minutes until the bake turns a golden brown.
- Let the tray/dish cool for 15 minutes but not till it’s completely hard, before cutting into bars and lifting from the dish.
- Enjoy as soon as they’re cool enough to eat and store in an airtight container.
