Scraps and Snippets ~ Peanut Crunch Fudge Bars

Xta-Warning…evil peanut recipe.


1 Cup coconut oil melted
3 Cups flour (I used whole wheat pastry)
4 TBSP milk of choice
1/3 Cup loose pack brown sugar
1 tsp salt.

Mix it all together and form it into two balls. Grease the sides of an 8 x 11 and press one of the balls into the bottom of the pan. Save the other ball or freeze it for later. Or 1/2 the recipe if you are a fun hater.
Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl combine:

3/4 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup brown rice syrup (corn syrup would likely work just fine, as would honey)
1/4 Cup milk of choice or water
1 TBSP of Ener G (or cornstarch or arrowroot would probably work)
1/2 TBSP vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Stir well.

Add 1 1/2 Cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 Cups peanuts

1/2 Cup crushed peanuts
Stir. Pour over crust.

Bake for 35 minutes at 350. Let cool and serve. If you keep it in the fridge you will lose a tooth so let it get back to room temperature before serving to guests.
