Raw Date and Peanut Butter Bars

IMG_6181 copy

These bars are decadent, gooey, chocolatey, naturally sweet, and utterly scrumptious. Plus, they are guilt-free, require only 5 ingredients, and 5 minutes to make. Need I say more? Actually, I should mention that they are so tantalizingly good that you will become addicted after the first bite, so if you lack self control, make sure that you have someone to share with. And finally, you simply need this in your life.

INGREDIENTS/ MAKES 8-10 BROWNIES

1 cup (240 gr.) crunchy peanut butter
10 Medjool dates, pitted
2 tablespoons cacao powder
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon coconut oil

METHOD

1. Blitz all of the ingredients in a food processor for 2-3 minutes or until well combined. You may have to scrape down the sides at least once to get all of the ingredients thoroughly mixed. The combination should resemble a thick and dry paste.

2. Spread the mixture onto a 8×5 in. (or slightly smaller) baking mold lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap. The smaller the mold, the thicker the brownies. Press the mixture down using a spatula for a more even surface.

3. Slice into squares and eat right away or refrigerate and save for later. The brownies keep well for a few days. Enjoy!

NOTES

* Double the ingredients and use the same size pan for thick brownies.
