As you may be aware, I love all things chocolate and peanut butter – that may be the understatement of the century!  But eating this sort of thing every day (in the quantities that I seem to when I make them) is not a great idea for my waistline!  I found a recipe for a healthy chocolate peanut butter slice and tried it a few times, tweaking it each time before I got it right.  And this is it!  All natural ingredients, but still need to limit how much you have at a time!

For the base
  1. 1 cup almond meal
  2. 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  3. 1/2 cup 100% all natural chunky peanut butter
  4. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
For the topping
  1. 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  2. 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates
  3. 2 tbs honey
  4. 1-2 tbs milk
Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients for the base in a food processor very well.
  2. Spoon into a 9x9" square pan lined with parchment paper and spread into corners. Press down with your hands (or some other flat-based pan) to ensure the base holds together. Put in refrigerator while making the topping.
  3. Blend all ingredients for the topping in the same food processor very well. Add sufficient milk to form a paste, but not too runny.
  4. Press the topping down on the base until smooth.
  5. Return to either the fridge or freezer until ready to eat. Cut into 12 bars with a sharp knife and store in either the fridge or freezer.
