THE BASE

  • 6 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

THE MIDDLE

  • 14 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup (125 g) cashew butter 1 cup (155 g) dry-roasted
    cashews

THE TOP

  • 100 g (²/³ cup) dark chocolate, melted
  • 2 teaspoons macadamia nut oil

 

PROCESS (M A K E S 1 2 P I E C E S)

Start by placing the pitted dates for the middle layer into a bowl and covering with hot water. Leave the dates to soak while you prepare your tin and make the base.

Grease and line a 19.5 cm x 9.5 cm loaf tin with baking paper.

Place the ingredients for the base into a heat-proof bowl or jug and gently warm over medium–low heat. Remove from the heat and mix to combine. Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and place in the freezer until the base is firm, approximately 15 minutes.

To make the middle layer, strain the dates and place them into your processor with the vanilla, maple syrup and salt. Blend until the mixture forms a smooth paste. Add the cashew butter and blend again. Add the dry-roasted cashews and blend until just combined—you want it to still have plenty of texture.

Once your base is firm, remove it from the freezer. Using slightly damp hands, press the middle layer firmly onto the base.

To make the top, mix together the melted chocolate and macadamia nut oil and pour evenly over the slice. Place the slice in the fridge to set. Slice. Serve.

NOTE: ONCE CUT, YOU CAN STORE THE SLICE IN THE FRIDGE OR FREEZER.
