Chocolate, peanuts and caramel are a match made in heaven but traditionally are very high in fat and sugar. This delicious and healthy alternative not only tastes amazing; it’s also high in protein, good fats and has no refined sugar!
With the crunch of the peanuts, the gooiness of the caramel and the richness of the chocolate topping- this treat is a must try for the whole family!



  • 125g cashews, soaked in boiling water for 20 minutes (you will need a total of 250g cashews for the base and middle of this slice)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup or rice malt syrup


  • 125g cashews, soaked in boiling water for 20 minutes
  • 200g dates, soaked in boiling water for 20 minutes
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup or rice malt syrup
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup roasted and lightly salted peanuts, roughly chopped


  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup or rice malt syrup


  • Line a 20cm x 20cm square baking dish with baking paper.
  • Soak 250g cashews and 200g 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 rest of the “Base” ingredients and mix well. Press into the lined dish evenly and flatten.
  • Place all the “Middle” ingredients (excluding the peanuts) with remaining cashew mixture, into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir through chopped peanuts. Smooth mixture over base and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to set a little.
  • Add the “Top” ingredients into a small saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted. Pour over the top of the slice and return to the fridge to set, approximately 20 – 30 minutes.
  • When set gently cut into 24 small rectangles with a sharp knife and store in an airtight container.
