This back country snack was adapted from my Chocolate Spackle recipe combined with a nut butter recipe I saw online a while back. Personally, I like this recipe better. It’s fantastic as a spread or by the spoonful, but it can also wake up your breakfast gruel.
Check out the nutritional facts here.
Kitchen Cook Time and Prep: This recipe makes about 2 cups of Spackle for which I would consider a tablespoon or two a serving. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare and I assume it would keep as long as open peanut butter would; a couple months, though I haven’t tested that as it doesn’t last that long in my pantry.
Tools: You will need a food processor and a mixer. In the back country all you need is something to spread it on, a cracker, dehydrated apple slice, a spoon, or you can just squeeze it into your mouth :).
Back Country-What to Expect: Expect it to disappear…quickly.
