Healthy Snickers Spread


     It's time to pack the sack lunches again. And I'm sure the kids are asking for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or perhaps peanut butter and honey sandwiches, or even Nutella, but I think it's time to mix things up a bit. Transform the peanut butter and honey into a healthy chocolate spread, and skip the snickers bar at the same time, for this is – healthy snickers spread!
     This spread is so, repeat SO, easy to make you are going to eat it over, and over, and over again. And it works perfectly even if peanut butter and honey are off the list! Basically, mix peanut butter or any other nut butter, with honey or any other liquid sweetener, and carob or cocoa powder, and you are good to go. It cannot be simpler, all the ingredients are already in your cupboard, and you are going to think that candy bar melted right onto your bread! Can we nominate this "the world's new favorite spread"?


Healthy Snickers Spread

Ingredients

3 Tbsp. old-fashioned peanut butter
2 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. carob or cocoa powder

the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!"

Wow! A snickers spread. How amazing is that? What do you suggest substituting the honey for to make it vegan? Thanks!

Thank you for commenting! And yes, this spread IS amazing. I suggest you substitute maple syrup or agave for the honey. The reason I use honey even if this is a vegan blog is that honey is healthy as opposed to the other animal products. So depending on why you are a vegan, you could still eat honey. But feel free to substitute!
