Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup dry roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 2 1/2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup chopped cacao pieces or chocolate chips
  • pinch sea salt

Instructions

  • Pop the peanuts into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped but not a paste
  • Add in dates, chocolate and salt and pulse until one large mass forms
  • Line a 9x9 dish with plastic wrap and press mixture into the dish. Use a wet silicone spatula to even out the surface (if you don't have one you can just use fingers but it may get sticky)
  • Pop into the freezer for 30 mins
  • After 30 mins remove from the freezer and use the plastic wrap to remove from the dish. Cut into 12 squares and store in a glass airtight container in the fridge

Notes

These will last in the fridge for about 2 weeks (although they only ever last a couple of days in this house). Make a double batch and keep some in the freezer - remove and store in the fridge when you are going to need them
