Nutritional information (per serve)
Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Grease a 10cm x 20cm loaf pan; line with baking paper.
Step 2 Place almond meal, chopped dates, coconut, cocoa powder and vanilla extract in a food processor; blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add honey; blend until mixture starts to form fine crumbs and holds its shape when pressed into a ball. (If mixture is too dry, add 1 tablespoon boiling water and blend for 20–30 more seconds, or until mixture comes together.)
Step 3 Remove 1 heaped tablespoon of date mixture from processor; set aside. Press remaining mixture into prepared loaf pan, smoothing surface with back of a spoon. Place pan in freezer for 5 minutes, or until slice is slightly firm.
Step 4 Remove slice from pan. Spread peanut butter evenly over slice; crumble reserved date mixture evenly over peanut butter. Cut slice into even squares and serve.
Store slice in an airtight container in the fridge.
