Excuse my love affair with peanut buter at the moment but it just seems to make the tastiest treats EVER! Now I thought that the banana and peanut butter cake was the tits and then this little beauty got created yesterday and I think it easily makes the top 4 incredibly, insaneley delicious treats list! It’s a little bit sweet a little bit salty and 100% yumtastical!
So a little update on my basketball career….and unfortunately it’s bad news. We played in the semi’s this week, I’m not entirely sure why it’s called the semi finals when we were the two last teams in the league but we played and we lost which means we lost the entire competition haha!
Put the dates in a pan with a splash of water and the coconut oil on a low heat. Cook them so they soak up the water and become squishy and start to fall apart and all the water is gone, then add the peanut butter and stir until it’s all mixed together. take off the heat and mix with the rest of the ingredients and press into a small, lined baking tin and chill in the fridge.
To make the chocolate, put the coconut oil, cacao butter and maple syrup in a bain marie until melted then stir in the cacao. Leave to cool and then pour over the nut bars. Leave to set int he fridge for about an hour then slice into bars. Keep them stored in the fridge as the chocolate melts fairly easily!
