Thank you Bakerita.com for making the busiest time of year a little bit easier with your innovative recipe. See the ingredients and the instructions I followed below.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
- ½ cup (128g) peanut butter or nut butter of choice
- 2 tablespoons (42g) pure maple syrup
- 2 to 4 tablespoons coconut flour
- ~48 FitJoy grain-free pretzels no broken ones
- 3 ounces dark chocolate chopped or in chips
- Flaky sea salt optional but recommended
Sandwiched the peanut butter mixture between the pretzels. To make it, mix up peanut butter (or any other nut butter your heart desires), a few tablespoons of maple syrup, and coconut flour. The exact amount of coconut flour depends on the thickness of your nut butter. If the nut butter is relatively thick already, it will be about 2 tablespoons. If it’s super runny, it will be closer to 4 tablespoons. The Bakerita recommended adding 1 tablespoon at a time until it’s thick and smooth, similar in texture to cookie dough.
You’ll roll the nut butter mixture into small balls and press a teaspoon of it between two pretzels. Then, dunk half into dark chocolate and sprinkle them with flaky sea salt. Put them into the fridge or freezer to firm up the chocolate, and we’re done!
