As life evolves, I’m always looking to make small changes to better my health, and better my nutritional intake. There is no better feeling than when your body is functioning to the best of its ability! Healthy fats are essential for this, and peanut butter is great to way to include these healthy fats into your diet. It is an integral part of allowing your body to function well!
Life is all about balance, but when you can whip up a sweet treat in such little time such as these Peanut Butter Bars, it just seems logical to avoid a trip to the shop for a chocolate bar. There is just something so much more satisfying about making food yourself. The joy of eating it, and even sharing it with friends.
Like most of my creations, this recipe is very simple and easy, and will achieve a delicious result! You will only need a couple of mixing bowls and a fridge to set. If you’re a peanut butter fan, you are going to fall in love with these peanut butter bars, even if you’re not, I promise you will love them too. Just remember, its important to read your labels before choosing a peanut butter. Ensure that you select one that is purely peanuts, a great go to brand is Mayvers, sold in most major Australian supermarkets.
