***This Giveaway has ended and the winner has been notified. Thanks to all for entering!***
A few weeks ago my wonderful friends at Peanut Butter and Co. sent me two jars of The Bee’s Knees Peanut Butter along with the cutest tote ever. Of course this meant I had to dig into the jar right away, and after a few spoonfuls of delicious peanut butter, I decided to make some Frozen Honey Peanut Butter Bites (pssst – there’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post!).
It’s been unseasonably warm in Southern California lately, so instead of just making traditional peanut butter bites, I took it one step further and made frozen ones, because nothing is better during a heat wave than a delicious frozen peanut butter snack.
These bites are packed with good-for-you ingredients like chia seeds, unsweetened coconut and almonds. And since the Bee’s Knees peanut butter already has a natural sweetness to it from the honey, there’s no added sugar! These bars are also gluten-free, and can be grain-free if you omit the puffed rice cereal. Basically, the sky’s the limit when it comes to them.
Of course you could make these chocolate with some Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter, but I think the honey version is top notch.
Frozen Honey Peanut Butter Bites
2/3 cup The Bee’s Knees Honey Peanut Butter
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup chopped cashews
1/3 cup puffed rice cereal
2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
In a small sauce pan or microwave, melt your coconut oil. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl add your peanut butter, vanilla, and coconut oil. Mix until well blended (the mixture will be sticky!).
Fold in your almonds, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut, cashews and puffed rice and continue to mix well.
But now here’s the fun part. The team at Peanut Butter and Co. is offering one lucky reader a chance to win 2 Jars of The Bees Knees Peanut Butter! Since Honey and Peanut Butter are such a delicious combo, this is one giveaway you’ll definitely want to enter.
The giveaway runs from Thursday 5/15 through Thursday 5/22. Open to US Residents Only.
