Peanut butter Protein Slice

image

Down the road from me there is a great coffee shop and juice bar attached to a fruit shop “Charlie’s Raw Squeeze”.  Some of the things in the window there look amazing! The organic coffee is so good and you can have your choice of any milk under the sun…perfect 😍.  Anyway I thought why pay $7+ a slice when I can make something similar myself for a lot less?  No offence Charlie’s I still love you 😁.  PS please don’t black list me.

Ingredients:

Base:

1 cup dried pitted dates

1 cup chocolate protein powder

1/2 cup pepitas

1/2 cup peanuts

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup water

Line a loaf tin with baking paper approx 28 cm by 8 cm.  Blend all the base ingredients together in the food processor until it comes together.  Press into the prepared loaf tin.

Middle:

1/2 cup peanuts

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup dried pitted dates

Blend all these ingredients in the food processor until they come together to form a ball.  Turn out and press this mix over the base mixture.  Try to make it as level as possible.

*For the top top melt down about 1 tbs each of smooth peanut butter, coconut oil and maple syrup.

*For my peanut butter I choose one that contains no sugar or salt.

*If you want to drizzle a little melted chocolate over the very top, I used an 85% dark chocolate about 100g

    1. Great thanks Holly! Your not wrong about the price that’s for sure. I also have a recipe for homemade protein bars that proved to be pretty popular too if you want to check them out. 😀
