When 3pm comes knocking and you haven’t got a healthy treat on standby, it’s easy to reach for a snack that might be high in sugar or salt like chips or chocolate. Meal prepping your snacks is one way to curb this habit with a healthier treat that will also satisfy your cravings. Mayver’s Peanut Popcorn Bars can be prepped in advance, don’t take a long time to cook (but do need 2 hours of freezing time) and are perfect for a work or after-school snack!

This recipe was provided by Tracey Morter for Mayver’s.


Ingredients (serves 15 | makes 15 bars)

  • FOR THE POPCORN
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • FOR THE COATING
  • 100gms butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ cup Mayver’s Crunchy Peanut Butter

Method

  1. Melt the 2 teaspoons of coconut oil in a large saucepan on medium to high heat.
  2. When oil is melted add the salt and popcorn. Put the lid on the saucepan and turn up the heat to high.
  3. Shake the saucepan vigorously and release the steam at regular intervals, by lifting the lid slightly, until all the corn is popped.
  4. Pour popcorn into a large bowl and let cool down.
  5. Use baking paper to line a brownie or slice tray.
  6. Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved.
  7. Take off the heat and whisk through the maple syrup and Mayver’s Crunch Peanut Butter.
  8. Pour this mixture over the popcorn and mix thoroughly, making sure all popcorn is coated.
  9. Pour mixture into the lined tray and press down firmly with the back of a metal spoon all over.
  10. Place in fridge for at least 2 hours.
  11. Carefully lift out of tray by pulling up the baking paper. Cut into 12 or more bar slices and enjoy!
