Sunbutter bark

Okay, I admit I am a sunbutter addict. I'm really trying to cut down but everytime I think of a recipe it features sunbutter like this Sunbutter Bark.

I made it with a mixture of purchased and homemade sunbutter to give it a crunchier texture. You can eat it in small squares as pictured above or break it into tiny bits to use as a topping on fruit. The recipe also is easily adaptable to using only purchased sunbutter or only homemade. It's your choice.

Sunbutter Bark

  1.  1/2 cup sunbutter, either purchased or homemade, or a mixture
  2. 1/2 cup coconut oil
  3. stevia to taste
  4. 2 T. toasted pumpkin seeds
  5. 1 T. toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
  1.  Melt coconut oil in microwave.
  2. Blend softened coconut oil, sunbutter and stevia in a food processor.
  3. Pour mixture into an 8 X 8 pan sprayed with pan spray. Spread evenly.
  4. Top with pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes. Press in slightly.
  5. Chill mixture before cutting into small squares or tiny bits. Stores well in fridge or freezer.

I love peanut brittle, but need to stay away from all that sugar. This sounds like a fabulous alternative.

It is pretty tasty. If you can eat peanut butter, you could make it with peanut butter and peanuts.

Hi, Sheree ~
YUM! This is a really pretty creation, too. And thanks for the inspiration to change up the after school snacks around our house a bit. This time of year, I admit I'm stumped for new ideas. As usual, you sparked a great one!

It would make a good snack along with an apple or other fruit. Now, I'm hungry just thinking about it.
