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 :)
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
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.
