Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter Review and Giveaway!

Tropical Traditions sent me Organic Coconut Peanut Butter to review and giveaway! This giveaway is open to US and Canada.


I love peanut butter! Naturally I was happy to try this product out! 



The blog What I Did Today inspired me to try out a granola bar recipe. I put my own spin on this delicious snack.


Directions: 


1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine Tropical Traditions Raw Honey, Brown Sugar and the Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil, and gently warm over low heat while stirring until the sugar crystals have dissolved. This should just take a couple of minutes.
2. Stir in the Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter, Vanilla, and Salt until smooth. Remove from the heat. Allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes.
It should look like this.
3. Stir in the Tropical Traditions Whole Golden Flaxseed (ground), Wheat Germ, Oats and Rice Cereal.
4. Let the mixture cool for few more minutes, and then stir in the Chocolate Chips.
5. The mixture will be crumbly, but that is okay. Press it firmly into a sprayed 8 x 8 pan. Make sure it is packed, and then place the bars into the freezer to chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
Cut into bars or pop them out and eat. Store them in the refrigerator to keep fresh and from getting too soft.
Makes 10 to 12 snack bars.

Super Yummy!
About Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter:
  • It is made from organic peanuts and organic coconut. Two ingredients: nothing else! 
  • No fillers, no binders, no sweeteners, and no preservatives. 
  • The peanuts are 100% organic Valencia peanuts grown organically by family farmers in New Mexico and Texas. Grown in the dry climate of the southwestern United States, these peanuts are certified organic and free from aflatoxins. 
  • The dried coconut is certified organic coconut meat from the Philippines from coconuts that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. 
  • Together, these premium organic roasted peanuts and the premium organic dried coconut are ground together to make a delicious and nutritious spread!
