Healthy chocolate peanut butter slice
A healthy chocolate peanut butter slice, using all natural ingredients including peanut butter, almond meal and sweetened only using Medjool dates
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!
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
- 1/2 cup 100% all natural chunky peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates
- 2 tbs honey
- 1-2 tbs milk
- Blend all ingredients for the base in a food processor very well.
- 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.
- Blend all ingredients for the topping in the same food processor very well. Add sufficient milk to form a paste, but not too runny.
- Press the topping down on the base until smooth.
- 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.
