These healthier scotcheroos are made with all natural peanut butter, sugar and coconut oil. This diabetic scotcheroo dessert recipe has no white sugar or corn syrup (your blood sugar levels will thank you for this)! The best part is that they are ready in less than 15 minutes and are a great healthy spin on the classic peanut butter and chocolate bar! If you need something to do in the 15 minutes, you can put on your men's and women's diabetic shoes and go on a quick walk.
- 1.5 cups all-natural peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- pinch of salt
- 4 cups brown rice crispies
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
1) Spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray.
2) Prepare the bottom layer of the bars by mixing peanut butter, honey, and salt into a large bowl. Mix until smooth and then fold in rice crispies.
3) Transfer the rice crispy mixture onto the bottom of the pan and a spatula to press the mixture into the pan. Set aside.
4) Now, place a small saucepan over low-medium heat (make sure the heat is not too high, otherwise, it will burn the chocolate). Add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and coconut oil. Stir continuously until melted.
5) Once melted, pour the chocolate/butterscotch mixture on top of the rice crispy layer evenly.
6) Place in freezer for 2-3 hours for the chocolate to harden. When ready to eat, remove pan from freezer and let it sit for 25 minutes.
