NO COOKING SKILLS NEEDED

I LOVE how stupid easy these are to make. Melt together a few ingredients. Stir in walnuts. Pour on a plate, give it a little drizzle, pop it in the freezer and voila! No expertise in the kitchen needed. In fact, it’s a great recipe for kids to make!

And makes a healthy snack– full of protein and healthy fats, not to mention the other loads of vitamins and nutrients in each of the ingredients. And it provides all that without an overdose of sugar. #momwinPeanut Butter Bark from PrettyPies

Sweet + Salty

What’s your favorite sweetener? If you love stevia like I do, go for it! I sweetened these with just a dusting of pure stevia powder… literally like a little white breath or cloud, lol. That stuff is strong and you don’t need much.

BUT, if you prefer maple syrup, coconut sugar or something else, the recipe is FLEXIBLE. It’s a super simple swap.

And don’t forget the SALT. Did you know adding salt actually enhances the sweetness of foods, too? Especially chocolate! Himalayan Pink Salt is my absolute favorite. It’s like a whole new level of flavor. Once I tried it, I will never go back to regular bleached salt again.

Instructions
To make the bark:
  1. Line 2 plates with parchment paper (Don't skip this part or it will stick like crazy!)
  2. Melt together peanut butter and coconut oil in a medium bowl (I did 30-40 seconds in the microwave).
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  4. Pour half of the mixture onto each plate.
To make the drizzle:
  1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together in a small bowl (20 seconds in the microwave usually works).
  2. Use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate on the bark.
  3. Freeze for 30 minutes or until completely hardened. Transfer to refrigerator. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Once hardened, store these in an air-tight container/ziplock bag in the refrigerator (or freezer). Must be kept cold since they melt at room temp.

    BLEACHED SALT… WOW your really trying to push the affiliate for Himalaya pink salt. And while I am at it, Sea Salt, Almost ALL salt west of the Rocky Mountains in the USA IS SEA SALT!! It had just been evaporated and then dried to purify it.
    IF you think I want to eat a product with BIRD Poop in it. Think again.

      ?? I mainly just love the flavor of pink salt. But you are free to use whatever you like. Bleached “table salt” is completely different than sea salt.

      Table salt is “Heavily processed to eliminate trace elements, table salt is mined from underground salt deposits and is bleached, heated and contains an additive, calcium silicate, to prevent clumping. Imparting a “sharper” flavor than kosher or sea salt, its fine crystals are considered *saltier than kosher salt.”

      Himalayan Pink Salt– “Known for its purity and and mineral content, … has a lovely soft flavor that imparts none of the sharpness that can come with heavily processed standard table salt.”

      You could try refined coconut oil, which has no taste. Other than that, palm oil or butter could work, but may not have the same crunch. Might be great, though! 🙂 If you try a variation, please let me know how it turns out.
