cacao + peanut butter fudge bars

cacao  + peanut butter fudge bars

chocolate + peanut butter is a match made in heaven, don't you think?

we often throw a cheeky tablespoon of peanut butter into our cacao blends, so it made sense to use them both in a Belly Blends gut-friendly recipe!

complete with a biscuit-style base, fudgey mousse centre and chocolate crackle top, this reverse version of a caramel slice will satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt and is protein packed to help keep you feeling fuller for longer.

 

 

base ingredients

1 cup natural peanut butter (or other nut butter you prefer)

1 cup oat flour (you can make your own by throwing 1 cup of oats into a food processor and blitzing to a fine consistency. or you could use almond flour for a gf version)

1/4 cup maple syrup

 

fudge filling ingredients

1 x sachet cacao Belly Blends

1 can of premium coconut cream

1 tbsp of rice malt syrup (optional)

 

chocolate topping ingredients

1 cup dark chocolate buds or dairy free chocolate (we love the new Pana pieces)

t tbsp coconut oil

 

method

  1. heat the peanut butter and maple syrup in a saucepan over low heat until runny. 
  2. turn off heat and stir in oat flour until well combined.
  3. press into a lined square 8 x 8 inch baking tin and refrigerate.
  4. prepare Belly Blends as per packet directions.
  5. pour onto prepared base and refrigerate until set.
  6. melt chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler over low heat, stirring frequently until melted.
  7. pour over set filling and refrigerate again until set.
  8. remove from the fridge 10 mins before slicing into bars.
