Boom. 😉

If you were looking for a healthier butterfinger recipe, you have found it!

The texture and the combination of flavours are spot . on . for a classic Butterfinger.  I can’t, in good conscience, keep these to myself.

I’ve seen various knock offs for Healthy Butterfinger Bars floating around the web here and there, but they always call for some strange science-y sounding ingredient that I simply don’t have and probably never will. 

I mean, what the heck is guar gum?

Regardless, this Honour System knock off has only common pantry ingredients.

Oats? Check.

Peanut Butter? Check.

Coconut Oil? Chocolate Chips?

Coconut Sugar? Checkity-check check.

Oh, and you have to be able to stir. I think we can handle this!

Pressing the Butterfinger mixture really well into the dish helps it hold together well.

Then get your drizzle on!

You could layer the heck out of this with chocolate if you wanted to but since I’m trying to keep it healthier, the drizzle helps cut down on calories you really don’t need.

You aren’t going to be wanting anything else.

I sliced them into small-ish squares to maintain some kind of portion control. I ended up having quite a few squares.

At least I attempted portion control, yes? 😉

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil with the peanut butter, coconut sugar and vanilla until smooth
  • Stir in the oats and mix until well combined
  • Line a 9x9 with parchment paper and press the mixture into it. I used the back of a flat spatula to really press it in really well. This will help it hold together so really press it well.
  • Place the 9x9 in the freezer 
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, melt together the chocolate chips and the 1 tbsp. of coconut oil, stirring until smooth
  • Remove the 9x9 from the freezer and using your spoon, drizzle the chocolate over top in any pattern you wish
  • Return the 9x9 to the freezer for an hour to set
  • Cut into squares and store covered in the fridge or freezer
