I think by sharing this recipe it’s possible I’ll reach rock star status. I’m predicting I’ll get overwhelmed with ‘thank-yous’ for sharing – yes people, it’s that good.
At Tanna Farms we tend to get a bit excited when we stumble across a recipe where we can use our Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil AND our Crushed It Peanut Butter … it’s like the ultimate ‘woohoo’ moment. So you can imagine my delight when I came across this one. Might I add that this style of baking and treat really appeals to me. It’s healthy yet you feel like it’s totally naughty and is oh so easy!
So gather those ingredients, get blending and stick it in the freezer. You have my personal permission not to share the first batch with anyone and keep it all to yourself.
1/2 cup – Tanna Farms Crushed It Peanut Butter
1 large – banana
1 teaspoon – vanilla extract (We love fellow Vanuatu made product, Venui vanilla extract)
2 tablespoon – Tanna Farms Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
2 tablespoon – pure maple syrup
1 tbsp – raw cacao powder
Stir peanut butter till creamy and smooth. If you need to warm it up to make it softer, it might be easier.
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor (I used my little mini kenwood blender as pictured) and mix until very smooth! You don’t want any lumps at all, just smooth cream.
This doesn’t look like much and I think I’ll be doubling the recipe in the future, but for this amount I found a loaf tin lined with baking paper was the ideal size. It doesn’t need to come to the edge.
Place in freezer until firm. Cut into squares and devour. The recipe says to store in the fridge to maintain solid bars but I kept mine in the freezer as it starts to melt as soon as it’s in your fingers.
This recipe is from the Super Healthy Kids website – so sadly while it’s not ‘school friendly’ for all our nut free schools out there, it makes for a delicious and healthy afternoon tea treat…or breakfast, or morning tea, or after dinner, in fact let’s just call it the ‘anytime’ treat…enjoy!
