Sometimes I get a craving for a certain flavour combination and this is fundamentally how I develop a recipe. To be honest, I’m generally not a huge peanut fan, but I have recently had a hankering (as well as numerous requests from Snickers fans), so this is what I’ve come up with.
Now this recipe started as three, distinct layers. But in the name of less time in the kitchen, I have streamlined it to just the filling and the chocolate. I’ve made this into a slice style treat and a chocolate bar. Personally, I don’t do fiddly, unless it’s for a photograph, so I think I’ll stick with the slice from now on.
It is also dried fruit (date) free which makes this a great fructose-free treat. I hope you like it as much as my family and I do! G x
125g (½ cup) peanut butter (good quality additive free)
125g (½ cup) tahini, hulled
85g (¼ cup) rice malt syrup (or maple syrup)
100g (½ cup) coconut oil
100g (1 cup) almond meal
Good pinch of sea salt
½ cup raw almonds, toasted
Choose rice malt syrup as your sweetener.
You can also use melted dark chocolate for the chocolate layer (though no longer dairy and refined sugar-free)
Make a bar
To make a bar, you will need to cut your filling once set into the size bar you want, then dunk in the raw chocolate to coat. Place the bars on baking paper and pop back in the freezer to set for a minute or so. Repeat until it coated to your liking. It will need at least two coats.
