PB, Almond and Raisin Popcorn Bars (No-Bake)

no bake peanut butter almond and raisin popcorn bars

Popcorn has long been one of my favourite snacks so it seemed only fitting to share a recipe in honour of National Popcorn Day (who knew there was such a thing?!). My go-to flavour of popcorn is sweet & salty, an element which I've picked up on in this recipe by combining salted popcorn with sweet chocolate and raisins, along with nutty flavours from the peanut butter and almonds. The bars are a handy on-the-go snack to provide a burst of energy, in a treat which feels substantial.

Three great health benefits: beneficial for heart health, boosts mood, promotes healthy skin 

Makes 16 bars

1 cup cacao butter
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp cacao powder
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
5 cups salted popcorn

1) Line an 8 inch square cake tin with greaseproof paper.
2) In a large saucepan over a medium-low heat, melt the cacao butter. Remove from the heat.
3) Add the maple syrup and cacao powder to the saucepan and stir to combine.
4) Next, add the peanut butter and stir well to combine before adding the raisins and almonds.
5) A cup at a time, add the popcorn, stirring well with a plastic spatula after each addition, ensuring all of the ingredients are evenly coated with the sauce and thoroughly combined.
6) Tip the mixture into the prepared cake tin (it will be generously filled), ensuring the mixture is spread evenly. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before slicing into bars.
