Peanut butter coconut bars


These look rather delicious😋

Has anyone ever used powdered peanut butter? I’d never heard of it?


1 cup powdered peanut butter

1/3 cup water

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut + a pinch more for topping

1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips, melted


Combine powdered peanut butter, maple syrup, water, vanilla extract, and coconut in a large bowl.

Press into an aluminum foil-lined 8x4 pan or Tupperware container.

Spread melted chocolate chips over top and top with additional coconut if desired.

Freeze for 1 hour before slicing and serving. Store in refrigerator.

Haha that’s true!

Hi Ali Agoodenough

I made these today but sadly I didn't enjoy them so won't make again. Personally I think peanut butter would had been better.

Sorry to disappoint.

I looked up the peanut butter powder and it’s different to the one you said. Maybe that would make a difference. Sorry you didn’t like them.

Is this the recipe you used with tapioca starch? Seems like a bit of a faff!

How do you make peanut butter powder?

worked like a charm!

In a blender, mix 1/2 c tapioca starch and 1/3 c peanut butter (use creamy).

Blend it up, stopping the blender every so often to mix it up a bit until you have a powdery consistency.

Store it in a covered jar (it will last as long as the peanut butter will last – look for the expiry date on the jar)

That may well make a difference as it's very different to what I did.

Unfortunately my blender doesn't take dry ingredients, they have to be wet.

That does sound easy to do though.

Don't worry, I'm sure I'll find plenty more sweet recipes.😉😋🌈🙏 xx
