I could tell you how delicious this raw vegan chocolate and orange slice is all day long but really you need to make it for yourself if you are a peanut/chocolate fan!
This raw vegan choc-peanut slice is vegan, raw (ish- I used maple syrup), gluten free, soy-free and quite easy to do if you have a high speed blender or food processor.
We ate half of the slice over the weekend and I am keeping the rest in the freezer for when the baby arrives and I get super hungry when breastfeeding! Plus so handy having treats in the freezer when visitors pop over. That is one of my favourite thing in making raw vegan recipes is not having to eat the whole thing in one sitting!
Raw Choc-Peanut Slice Recipe:
- 1 cup of raw almonds (or nuts of choice)
- 1 cup of pitted dates
- 1/4 cup of raw cacao powder
- 1/4 cup of water
- Mix the nuts in a food processor then add the dates and blend further.
- Add in the cacao and water and blend further until a sticky dough is formed.
- Press the dough down in a slice tin covered with plastic wrap or in a silicon mould and pop in the freezer while you make the next layers.
- 1 cup of soaked cashews (ideally overnight)
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp of maple syrup ( add 1 more if you have a very sweet tooth)
- 2 tbsp of melted coconut oil
- 5 tbsp of peanut butter (smooth)
- 1 tbsp of water
- In a food processor blend your cashews and the rest of the ingredients until you get a smooth peanut cream.
- Spread on top of your base and pop in the freezer while you make the chocolate layer.
