Dairy Free Peanut Butter Slab.

I've been craving flapjacks and brownies recently, knowing I can't eat either I took it upon myself to create my own version. I took a little inspiration form Jess from Jess Beautician on YouTube, who's recipes I'm obsessed with and gathered my ingredients together. This is a super easy recipe and the best part is, it involves zero baking.

For the base you will need:


1 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
4 Madjool Dates
1 Tbs Honey (or Vegan alternative)

And for the topping:

100g 80% Dark Chocolate Buttons
1 Tbs Honey (again, you can use and alternative)
Peanut Butter to decorate

I whizzed all the base ingredients together in a blender then emptied out into a tray that had been pre-lined with baking paper. I then pressed down and made sure the mixture was packed as tight as possible and popped it to one side. 

Then melt your chocolate and drizzle over the base. I didn't want a thick coating of chocolate, but there is no reason why you can't be more generous. I then decorated with peanut butter and swirled it out using the tip of my knife. Then pop it in the fridge for at least 2 hours and enjoy!

This is such a yummy snack when I'm craving something sweet. I could have probably got away with using no caster sugar, but I have a huge sweet tooth - maybe next time.

  3. Do you think these would work as well with almond butter? I always love the look of things like this but I hate peanuts! xx

    1. I'm not sure, almond butter tends to be more watery I feel. Maybe if you combined something else with it? Maybe some desiccated coconut? xx
