Healthy Butterfingers

Healthy candy bars that defy all logic. The homemade Butterfingers have that exact same toffee-like crunch of store-bought Butterfinger bars… yet these are whole-grain, high in iron, and completely free of high-fructose corn syrup.
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup agave or honey (see note below)
  • 1 tbsp regular or blackstrap molasses - Or omit and increase agave to 1/3 cup
  • 3 1/2 tbsp sugar, unrefined if desired, or xylitol
  • 1 cup peanut butter, or allergy-friendly sub
  • 1 1/2 cups bran flakes, or corn flakes, or another flake cereal (56g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt, plus a little extra if using unsalted pb
  • optional topping: 2/3 cup chocolate chips or 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil mixed with 1/4 cup cocoa powder and vanilla stevia drops or liquid sweetener to taste
Instructions
  1. Notes: Honey works, but it’s not for strict vegans and will also add a slight honey flavor. Corn syrup will also work, and commenters have said brown rice syrup or pure maple syrup work as well. If subbing out the molasses, the bars will taste less authentic but still delicious. If using xylitol, texture will be less toffee-like. Almond butter or Sunbutter work, or use peanut butter for the flavor that most closely resembles real Butterfingers.
