RAW PEANUT BUTTER & CACAO SLICE

 

(DF, GF)

The only thing I can lay claim to here is the picture of the slice I made bu this is NOT a recipe that I made up so all credit goes to Well Nourished

I have to say it is an incredible, delicious, low sugar slice that upon sharing with friends and family had averyone asking me for the recipe so thankyou Georgia!

INGREDIENTS

Base Layer​

  • 125 grams (½ cup) 100% pure peanut butter (no additives or sugar or salt)

  • 125 grams   (½ cup) hulled tahini (this is sesame paste) (I used Macro Organics)

  • 85 grams (¼ cup) rice malt syrup (I used organic maple syrup)

  • 100 grams   (½ cup) coconut oil (I used Nutra Organics)

  • 100 grams (1 cup) almond meal (I used Honest To Goodness)

  • Good pinch of sea salt

  • ½ cup raw almonds, toasted  **to toast, lay your almonds out on unbleached baking paper and pop in 150degree celsius over for 15-20mins (be careful not to burn!)  Make sure the almonds cool before adding them into your slice

Chocolate Cacao Layer

  • 200 grams (1 cup) coconut oil, softened

  • 2-4 tablespoons rice malt syrup (i used maple syrup)

  • 30 grams (¼ cup) cacao powder

METHOD 

  • Start with the base layer.

  • In a food processor, mix the peanut butter, tahini, sweetener, coconut oil, sea salt and almond meal until well combined (TMX 30 seconds, speed 4).

  • Press into a slice tin or the bottom of a tupperware container (approx 20cm x 30cm), lined with non bleached baking paper that is bigger that the base so it goes up the sides

  • Place the almonds on top and press gently into the filling. I keep them visible on the surface.

  • Pop into the freezer.

  • To make the chocolate cacao topping, mix the coconut oil, rice malt (or maple syrup) and cacao in a mixing bowl or your Thermomix (5 secs speed 4) until combined (only takes a minute). You may need to warm the mixture slightly by sitting the mixing bowl over a bowl of steaming hot water. 

  • Pour over the base layer and return to the freezer immediately, for 20-30 minutes to set.

  • Once set cut and store in the fridge or freezer.

  • Like any raw treats, these need to be kept refrigerated or frozen. 

Enjoy and share the love!
