Easy Raw Peanut Butter Chocolate Slice

This peanut butter chocolate slice is raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. It is so easy to make!



What I love about this recipe is that it uses freshly grounded peanut butter, which I get from a health food shop in Adelaide Central Market

This health food shop, House of Health, sells raw ingredients in bulk. You can get various grains, pulses, flours and edible colours sold by the gram. 

One of the best part about this shop is its nut grinder machine, where you get a container and grind your own nut butter. There are three options for the coarseness of your grind: smooth, medium and crunchy. After you fill your container, the staff weighs it and you only pay for the amount you get.

The prices are better than buying a jar of peanut butter at the supermarket. But more importantly, the health value of a 100% nut butter that is oil-free, sugar-free and salt-free can not be overstated!

Enjoy. X

Directions

3) When the base is solid, take it out and spread mixed nut topping and chocolate sauce on top.
