Cherry Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar by Big Spoon Roasters
Balanced, on-the-go nutrition doesn't have to sacrifice integrity, flavor, or freshness. The proof is in these fresh, handcrafted nut butterÂ bars, which are made in small batches with fresh-roasted nut butter and the best whole ingredients out there. Equally tasty and nutritious without compromise, this is probably the kind of bar you'd make at home if you only had time.

A lifelong peanut butter lover, co-founder Mark first tried making his own in 1999 while living in a rural farming community in Zimbabwe, where he was a Peace Corps Volunteer. After harvest, community members would roast peanuts over open fires and pound them with stones into a thick paste, which was usually added to savory dishes. In an attempt to replicate the classically sweet, salty, and spreadable peanut butter from home that he craved, Mark made his own batches with the additions of honey, sea salt, and coconut oil. The deliciously fragrant, mouthwatering result was a revelation that the best foods are often the simplest, made with fresh ingredients, care, and craft.
In the fall of 2010, Mark was inspired to recreate that unforgettable peanut butter experience he had in Africa. He started roasting nuts and milling them into fresh nut butters in his home kitchen. Excited to share these foods with others and turn these passions into a business, Mark and his wife, Megan, started Big Spoon Roasters in January 2011.
