There’s not one person in this world who doesn’t like to snack on treats,
There are the salty snackers,
And there are those who prefer sweets,
There are those who like to combine the two.
And there are the geniuses who immediately have a sweet snack followed by a salty one, and that’s how they enjoy both worlds at the same time.
“Bamba” is one of my favorite snacks,
It’ll always remind me of home,
Give me a festive feeling,
Make me happy,
And will make me addicted to every bite.
When I have a bag of “Bamba” at home I won’t stop thinking about it until I eat it.
It’s a taste that reminds me of Israeli summer childhood,
“Bamba” crumbs on the cheeks after a fun-filled visit to the sea or the amusement park.
This is “Bamba”,
Accompanying us Israelis in many moments in life.
So I decided to make my own version of it,
Honestly, I didn’t imagine it would turn out so amazing.
And it turned out to be one that the heart falls in love with until the end of the world and beyond.
So here’s my version of “Bamba”,
Even the bite is almost as crumbly as the original.
The saltiness is refined,
The peanut butter tastes wonderful.
And it’s a bite you remember for a long, long time ❤️
Happy and joyful snacking days to us all 🙂
“Bamba” (Peanut Butter Snack)
Ingredients: suitable for between 50-70 “Bambas”, depends on the size
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1¼ cups almond flour
- ¼-½ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- Preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C) turbo mode (Static mode is also possible), and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a bowl, put all dry ingredients: almond flour, salt and baking powder and mix well.
- To the dry mixture, add the peanut butter and maple syrup and mix well until the mixture is uniform and slightly sticky and easy to work with. If the mixture crumbles, add 1-4 tablespoons of peanut butter. If the mixture is sticky, add 1-4 tablespoons of almond flour.
- Roll a small ball of dough from the mixture and make a small “Bamba” out of it, repeat this action again with the rest of the dough mixture. Arrange the “Bambas” in the baking pan.
- Put the pan in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until they become slightly golden.
Cool a little and gobble them quickly.
A little extra from me:
- The “Bambas” can be kept in a sealed box on the counter for 3 days.
- Unfortunately, there is no substitute for maple syrup and you can’t omit it from this recipe.
- Almond flour can be substituted for oat flour, the texture will be a little different and less crumbly.
- You can use either smooth or crunchy peanut butter.
