I recently discovered the absolute amazingness that is PB2. If you’ve never seen it before, it is a powdered peanut butter that you can mix with water to create actual peanut butter (I got mine at Fred Meyer, but I’ve seen it at Target too). It is amazing with bananas, on coconut milk ice cream, and mixed with dark chocolate and coconut oil for these tasty little fat bites.
You can use something like a SilPat (or any silicone baking sheet) to recreate a solid chocolate bar, but I used a silicone mini muffin pan for individual servings. They came out super rich so you will only need 1-2 to satisfy even the most intense of cravings.
50g (that’s 1.75 oz) dark chocolate, 85%
3-4 tsp PB2 OR 2 tsp almond butter
1-2 tsp coconut oil
Non-stick coconut oil spray
Using a sharp knife, coarsely chop your chocolate bar – this will help the chocolate melt a little faster. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl heat chocolate for about 30 seconds. Stir in 3 tsp of PB2 with a fork (you lose less chocolate this way) and add coconut oil. Continue microwaving in 15-second intervals, stirring after each, until chocolate is completely melted.
Spray baking sheet or mini muffin pan with coconut oil spray. If using baking sheet, place baking sheet on a cutting board (so you have a solid base), pour all of the chocolate mixture onto the sheet, and spread into a thin layer. If using a mini muffin pan, fill each cup about 1/4 full (seriously, these are really rich, 1/4 is enough I promise). Sprinkle top with additional PB2 for “garnish” (optional). Refrigerate for about 40 minutes and enjoy!
Store any uneaten PB bites in the fridge.
