Chocolate Peanut Slice
It’s safe to say that I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER and possibly eat far too much of it but hey we all have our vices and it could be worse.
So when it comes to my pure love of the stuff, I pretty much try and incorporate it into anything so while we were in Brussels for a few days we happened upon a lovely vegan restaurant which sold the most amazing peanut butter chocolate pie. I can’t work out who are more...myself or my son but it didn’t last long so I know then that I had to recreate it at home and this version is pretty darn close that I managed to scoff half of it straight away...oops.
My vegan, gluten free and raw chocolate peanut butter slice is so easy to make and can by whipped up in no time at all, especially when your craving for something sweet, chocolatey and with lashings of peanut butter.
But don’t just take my word for it, try it yourself! And if you do, let me know how you got on!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice
Chocolate and nut base
6 dates (soft)
1/2 cup mixed nuts (I used pecans, almonds and walnuts)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup Cacao powder
Pinch of Salt
Peanut butter layer
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4- 1/3 cup fine coconut sugar (depending on taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Coconut flour (quantity will depend on your peanut butter)
1 tbsp coconut oil
Chocolate top layer
50 g 85% dark chocolate
2 tbsp tahini
In a food processor add the nuts, dates, Cacao powder, salt and coconut oil and blitz until filly incorporated and comes together as a sticky dough
Using your hands, smooth the layer into a pan until about 1/2 cm thick.
If using chunky peanut butter, using the food processor, add all the ingredients (except the coconut flour) and blitz together. Add in coconut flour 1 tbsp at a time and stir by hand until you get a smooth firmer texture (don’t add too much as it will become dry and crumbly)
Place this into the pan and smooth down and then place into freezer to firm up.
Melt the chocolate and stir through the tahini
Pour this over the peanut butter layer and pop into the fridge to harden slightly and then cut into slices and enjoy
