Raw Cacao Peanut Butter Slice

 
 

This no-bake slice is perfect for the chocolate/peanut butter lovers out there! What a combo. How could you not love a chocolatey base covered in a smooth and creamy peanut butter topping?

I developed this recipe for Bare Blends, using their raw cacao whey protein and their raw cacao powder. I like their protein blends because they're natural, good quality and only sweetened with stevia. I boosted the slice with some protein to keep you feeling satisfied and added some extra raw cacao powder for a chocolatey antioxidant boost.

I kept the sugar content low (the peanut butter adds natural sweetness) and the slice is also gluten-free and grain-free. You can keep it in the fridge or freezer for a post-workout snack or an after dinner treat!

 
 

Raw Cacao Peanut Butter Slice

Gluten-free | Grain-free | Low sugar

Ingredients: 

For the base:

For the topping:

  • 1/3 cup natural smooth peanut butter *
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, melted
  • Pinch of sea salt

Preparation:

  1. Line a 10 x 16cm container with baking paper or cling film.
  2. To make the base, process the nuts, coconut, protein powder and cacao powder together in a food processor until you get fine crumbs. Add the coconut oil and rice malt syrup and mix until everything is well combined. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared container and set aside in the fridge.
  3. To make the topping, mix all of the topping ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined. Spread the mixture over the base, then put the container back into the fridge for a few hours until set.
  4. Once set, remove the slice from the container and cut into pieces with a sharp knife. Store in the fridge or freezer.

Makes 12 pieces.

* It’s best to use a natural peanut butter than contains peanuts only.
