Raw Chocolate & Peanut butter slice
Chocolate & Peanut butter...a match made in heaven...
As most of you know, I used to have a serious addiction to sugar. Since changing my diet to a JERF (Just Eat Real Food) diet and including Fermented foods into my daily diet, my sweet tooth only comes out occasionally. Yesterday was one of those days that I NEEDED something (ladies, I'm sure you can relate to this at that time of the month)! So, I made this slice. It has only a few ingredients, and with the Thermomix or a high power food processor, it only took about 5 minutes to make. This is what I call FAST FOOD!
Raw Chocolate & Peanut Butter slice recipe
350g Pitted Organic Dates
150g Raw Organic Almonds
4 Heaping TBSP of good crunchy Peanut Butter - I love Mayvers Peanut Butter
2 TBSP Organic Raw Cacao
Generous Pinch of Murray River Salt.
90g Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
25g of Organic Cacao
30g of Maple Syrup/Raw Honey.
Small pinch of Murray River Salt.
Line a square pyrex dish with baking paper.
Place all ingredients into your food processor/Thermomix & blend on the highest speed until all combined & dates have broken down into a sticky paste.
Empty into pyrex dish & use a dessert spoon to compact. Run the spoon around the edges of the pyrex dish to get them nice and flat.
Conventional: Melt the Coconut oil over a double boiler & add in remaining ingredients. Stir to combine. Pour Chocolate onto base & cover. Place in freezer to set.
Thermomix: Melt coconut oil - 37 degrees, speed 4, 2-3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients & mix on speed 6 for 10 seconds. Use a spatula to push down off the sides of the bowl & mix for a further 10 seconds on speed 6, Pour Chocolate onto base & cover. Place in freezer to set.
Once the slice is set, boil some water & place in a cup. Dip your knife in the boiling water & dry with a cloth and proceed to slice. This will ensure you get clean cut lines.
Enjoy everyone! I'd love to hear what you think if you make this treat. If you'd like to learn more raw treats like this one, come & join me at my Healthful Treats cooking class next month.
