Peanut Butter, Chocolate & Goji Berry Raw Slice August 11 2014

Peanut butter, chocolate & goji berry raw (uncooked) slice, a delicious gluten and dairy free treat. If you like peanut butter then this is the slice for you! It's sweet with a fudgy consistency - a small piece goes perfectly with a cup of tea. It's also great for an after school treat for the kids. Enjoy :)

Ingredients:

1 cup crunchy peanut butter (use a good quality 100% peanut butter)

250g/2 cups pitted dates

3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

1 cup shredded/desiccated coconut

3-4 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or cocoa), use 4 spoons for a richer slice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

handful of goji berries

Method:

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process for about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the processor and process again to ensure all ingredients are well combined.

If you don't have a food processor then finely chop the dates and combine with the other ingredients. Tip: If mixture is hard to combine, put it in a saucepan over a low heat and stir with a wooden spoon.

Press the mixture into a lined square tin. Press goji berries over the top of the slice and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Slice in to small squares and serve.

Store in a plastic container in the fridge.

Optional: Add raw cacao nibs to the mixture for an extra chocolate hit.
