So you guys seem to all LOVE a good peanut butter recipe so here's a simple lunch box slice that's sure to get the thumbs up!
It's easy, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and all kinds of delicious!
Makes: 12 pieces
Time: 10 mins make, plus 1 hour cooling time
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut 
  • 1/2 cup puffed rice (optional, will mean it's not grain free) or quinoa flakes

  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

Topping

DIRECTIONS: 

1. Line a medium loaf pan with baking paper

2. Mix together almond meal, coconut, rice puffs and salt.

3. In a small pan over the stove top, gently heat the rice malt syrup, peanut butter, oil and vanilla until it forms a creamy mixture.

4. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix to combine.

5. Press into loaf pan and transfer to the fridge while you prepare the topping.

6. Over a double boiler (or carefully in the microwave), melt chocolate. Pour over slice and spread evenly. Transfer back to the fridge for 1 hour.

Slice will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Freezes well.
