No bake chocolate peanut butter bites
We could all do with some heaven in our lives no? These little bites are about to make you do a happy dance. Allergic to peanut butter, substitute almond butter instead. Seriously go make these now, you won't regret it.
Prep Time15 mins
Freezing time1 hr
Total Time15 mins
- 1 can High quality coconut cream
- 2 Cups oats Gluten free optional
- 8 Tbsp agave
- 4 Tbsp coconut oil
- 4 Tbsp peanut butter Almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 slab dark vegan chocolate
In a dry blender add your oats and pulse until finely ground (flour-like). Remove from blender into a bowl. Add 1/2 tsp of the salt to this as well as 4 tbsp agave and 1 tbsp coconut oil. Hand mix until well combines. If you have a food processor you can do this all in that but I don't have one currently.
Wash your blender out removing all oat particles. Add the can of coconut milk, 3 Tbsp coconut oil, 4 Tbsp agave, peanut butter, 1/2 tsp salt and vanilla extract to the blender and blend on high until smooth. Taste and add more agave if you like sweeter treats. I used organic peanut butter which only contains peanuts and salt but didn't want my filling to be overly sweet.
Line your baking tray with wax paper. Press your base mixture into the bottom of your pan evenly. I rolled out my base with a glass to get it smooth after pressing it with my fingers.
Pour the wet mix onto the base and pop into the freezer for at least 2 hours.
Remove after 2 hours and slice into your desired shape using a sharp knife.
In a clean bowl, place your chocolate blocks and heat in the microwave for 20sec, remove and stir, repeat by placing in microwave for another 20 sec and continue this step until almost all the chocolate has melted. NB DO NOT microwave chocolate for longer than 20sec periods as it will burn and leave you crying on the kitchen floor (okay maybe not in tears but you would have wasted a perfectly good chocolate bar).
Once melted dip each square into the chocolate and place on a tray in the freezer to set.
They are now ready to be indulged in and remember sharing is caring ;)
