Keeping in with the peanut theme at the moment… I made a batch of peanut butter recently so am using it in everything! These slices are quite rich in fats. I have used a lot of nuts in them as well as peanut butter and cacao butter in the chocolate topping. But they’re good fats! And they taste delicious! I have added quite a bit of salt to this recipe, I am usually low in sodium in my bloods so I can afford to put lots of salt on everything, it’s a perk of not eating processed foods, no hidden extras! I love salted caramel too and this recipe allows me to get that fix!
1tsp himalayan pink salt
3 tablespoons peanut butter
3 tablespoons water
2 tsp himalayan pink salt
20g cacao butter
20g cacao powder
10g maple syrup
First, to make the base. Add almonds, dates and salt to a blender, blitz up until the mixture is fine and starting to clump together. Spread onto a baking tray, pat it down and chill in the fridge.
Meanwhile, make the peanut sauce layer. Add peanut butter, salt, water and dates to blender. Blitz until smooth and creamy. Pour over the base layer and chill in the fridge.
Lastly, to make the chocolate sauce. Melt cacao butter, add cacao powder and maple syrup and blend together. Pour over the peanut slices and top with roast, chopped peanuts. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours and then slice and serve.
