8x8 Baking Dish
2 Microwaveable Bowls
pitted medjool dates
melted coconut oil
Peanut Butter Layer
vegan chocolate chips
Line a 8x8 baking tray with parchment paper.
For the Crust
Pulse medjool dates, cashews, melted coconut oil, salt, and agave syrup in the blender into crumbles.
Add the coconut flour and blend until it becomes a sticky dough-like texture.
Press the mixture into the baking tray, creating one even layer.
Freeze for at least 10 minutes.
For Peanut Butter Layer
Add peanut butter and one tablespoon agave syrup to a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring until the right consistency. It should be melted and easy to pour.
Remove the baking tray from the freezer and pour the peanut butter mixture evenly on top of the crust.
Freeze for at least 15 minutes.
For Chocolate Topping
Melt vegan chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl at intervals of 30 seconds, stirring each time until chocolate is easy to spread on top.
Remove the baking tray from the freezer and add the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter layer, using the back of a spoon to create some fun swirls in the mixture.
Top with slivered almonds and crushed pistachios.
Finally, sprinkle a little salt on top.
Freeze for an hour and slice into 16 squares.
These are best cold, I recommend storing them in the freezer. Take a square, let it sit for a few minutes to thaw slightly and enjoy!
How do I crush the pistachios?
For the crushed pistachios, you can use the back of a knife to crush them on a cutting board, or simply chop them roughly.
You can sub walnuts for the cashews in the base if you'd like, using the same measurements.
Maple syrup can be substituted for the agave syrup if you prefer!
No chocolate chips? No problem. Use a bar of chocolate. Chop it up into chunks and use the same process for melting!
