Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway Ends 7/31/11 EST 7 PM

Review

Organic Coconut Peanut Butter Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter 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!

I received a jar of Organic Coconut Peanut Butter to sample and review.  This is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with Tropical Traditions.  They are an amazing company.  I used the peanut butter to make the Chewy Peanut Butter Coconut Granola Bars.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine sugar, peanut butter, honey, butter and vanilla in a large bowl until well combined.
Stir in remaining ingredients until well combine. Mixture will be like very wet granola. Press into a Texas sheet pan* greased with palm shortening or coconut oil.
Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until edges are nicely browned. Run a thin butter knife along the edges and cut while still warm. Let cool in the pan before removing. Bars will be fragile while hot but will firm up as they cool. Enjoy!

This recipe is quick and easy.  We really enjoyed these granola bars.

I'd combine the coconut peanut butter with shredded coconut, so as to make coconut peanut butter balls. Yummy!
