This weekend I needed a quick fix for a sugar craving. I am going thorugh a very sugarey phase right now where it could literally eat sweet stuff for breakfast. You guys know what I am talking about. So I whipped up a slice which requires had less than 10 ingredients and half an hour to make.
- 1 cup peanuts or half cup peanut butter
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 cup date sugar or pitted dates (pre-soaked in hot water and drained)
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp agava chocolate or rice syrup or just Dates then ist sugarfree
- 1 banana
- handful chopped dark chocolate and some extra walnuts
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 4 tbsp rice syrup
For the base place the peanut butter, walnuts, vanilla essence, dates and syrup in the blender. This get sshould get quite sticky. If it is still too dry add some tbsp of plant-based milk. Remove the mixture from the blender into a clean bowl. Chop some dark vegan chocolate and fold it under the dough. Add some walnuts too if you like that extra bite – I certainly do! Line a bread loaf tin with paper and press the mix into the tin. Transfer to the freezer while you prepare the chocolate coating.
For the chocolate coating melt the coconut oil, mix in the cocoa powder and add the syrup – stir well. Remove the tin from the freezer and pour the liquid chocolate coating over the cookie base. Return to the freezer for an hour. Remove the whole thing from the tin by pulling up the wax paper and Lifting it onto a chopping board. Cut slices as desired and deorate with cocoa nibs. It is best to store them in the freezer in a container.
