Serves 24, prep time 1 hr 30 min

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cashew nuts, unsalted
  • 1 cup almond meal  
  • 1/3 cup cacao/cocoa powder  
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract  
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup  
  • 1 cup pitted, dried dates
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted  
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts, chopped

Method

  • Line an 8in x 8in square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Soak the cashews and the dates separately in boiling water for 20 minutes. Rinse and drain.
  • Add cashews only to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Divide cashew mixture in half.
  • Add one half of the cashew mixture to the almond meal, 1 tablespoon of the cacao/cocoa powder, 1/2 of the vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup and mix well. Press into the lined dish evenly and flatten.
  • Place remaining cashews, all the soaked dates, remaining vanilla, a tablespoon of maple syrup and 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil, into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir through chopped peanuts. Smooth mixture over base and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set a little.
  • Add the remaining coconut oil, remaining cacao/cocoa powder and remaining maple syrup into a small saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted. Pour over the top of the mixture and return to the fridge to set, approximately 20 – 30 minutes.
  • When set gently cut into 24 small rectangles with a sharp knife. 1 rectangle is 1 serving.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
