Ok so we don’t even have Butterfinger bars in Ireland but most people will be familiar with them. Correction, we actually do have them but they’re not commonplace and only found in American candy sections of a small number of stores. They most certainly didn’t have them when I was growing up. Believe it or not I didn’t even like peanut butter as a kid…oh how times have changed!
Like most things these days if you really wanted to buy them you could pick up a big box on Amazon. I personally would rather recreate something at home…now I think I’ve only ever had the real deal once, while actually on a random trip to Germany of all places, but I think this homemade take is pretty darn epic.
They’re also super easy to make. To be fair, I say that about most things, but I promise these really are easy to make and require minimal ingredients!
Flax adds a little hit of fibre and helps keep the chewy peanut butter crunchy cereal filling together. It also just makes these a more rounded snack; heck I don’t need any excuse, they’re just indulgent and delicious.
I actually created this recipe for Linwoods so it will also be featured over on their site along with a whole host of other delicious recipes and inspiration to help you get more from your bag of flax, chia or one of the mighty array of combinations they have on offer!
