Ingredients:

For the base:

  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 1 cups oats
  • 1 cup Nuoi Foods Smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar (or any other sweetener)

 

For the caramel filling:

  • 2 cups dates
  • 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 tbsp coconut milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 vanilla pod (or 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste)
  • 2 tsp coconut nectar (optional)

Chocolate topping

  • 200g Raw dark chocolate (you can make your own with 1 cup cacao butter or coconut oil, 1/2 cup raw cacao powder and 2 tbsp of sweetener)
  • Raw vegan white chocolate
  • 1 cup peanuts

 

Method:

  1. For the base, put all of your ingredients into a blender and mix together until smooth.
  2. Line a baking tin (around 20×20 cm) with grease proof paper
  3. Pour the base into the tin and press down with the back of a metal tablespoon until it evenly covers the bottom
  4. Once the base is covered, place it in the fridge to set for around 15-20 minutes whilst you make your filling
  5. For the caramel filling, put the dates and boiling water into a saucepan and stir it over a medium heat for around 5 minutes. The dates should turn into a thick paste.
  6. Put your date paste into a blender and add the peanut butter, coconut milk, salt, vanilla and coconut nectar.
  7. Blend together until smooth
  8. Pour the peanut caramel mixture onto your base and leave to set in the freezer for around 1 hour
  9. Once the caramel is set, melt up (or make) your chocolate and pour it over the top
  10. Decorate the top with peanuts and melted white chocolate
  11. Leave these to set in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving… that’s the hard part!
  12. And there you have it, a delicious slice of heaven to enjoy without the guilt!
