"Samoa" Bars

Ok, so this recipe is a game changer for me, folks. As many of you know, I have a wicked sweet tooth, I absolutely love all things chocolate and peanut butter, especially when they're combined. Over the past few years I have slowly been gathering clean eating recipes that satisfy these cravings in a healthy way. This is probably my favourite out of them all!


Let me introduce to you the "Samoa" Bar! They are coconut-y, chocolate-y goodness wrapped into one little bar, and there is nothing artificial about them! They are simple and delicious! You have natural peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, rolled oats, cocoa powder, ground flax seeds, vanilla, and of course shredded unsweetened coconut.


I followed THIS recipe, with only a minor alteration. I just used a tablespoon of coconut oil instead of 1/4 cup.

These are a healthier and more natural sweet treat that's packed with lots of great energy. Just a note. Even though you will want to eat them all at once, try and keep them as a special treat. Eating about three bars will almost equal the same amount of calories, as roughly one healthy meal. One "Samoa" bar equals about 126 calories (I cut my batches into about 15 bars). So try eating just one for a treat or after a really good work out!


Are you excited to try them? Let me know what you think!

Love,
CP

    1. Hey Marlen,
      I'm the same way, haha! I've been challenging myself with the whole self-control thing! Fruit is always a good option! Lots of natural sugars!
