Peanut Butter squares

Peanut Butter squares ⁠ 
Base⁠ 
5 dates⁠ 1 
1/4 cups of desiccated coconut⁠ 
1/3 cup Smooth Peanut Butter (I used the new SKIN ON @mavyersfood )⁠ 
1/3 cup of almonds⁠ 
1/4 cup of raw cocoa ⁠ good pinch of salt⁠ 
2-3 Tbsp of water⁠ ⁠ 

Peanut Butter layer⁠ 
3/4 cup of Peanut Butter⁠ 
1/4 cup of coconut oil⁠ 
1/4 cup of maple syrup⁠ 
pinch of salt⁠ ⁠ 

Chocolate espresso layer⁠ 
100g of dark chocolate ⁠ 
1 Tbsp of instant coffee (I used @begoat.official)⁠ 
1 1/2 Tbsp of coconut oil⁠ ⁠ 


Combine the ingredients for the base in a food processor and spread evenly in a pre-lined tin. If its too wet add a little more coconut, if its too dry add a little more water.⁠ ⁠ 

Combine the peanut butter layer ingredients in a saucepan and melt together, let sit for a few minutes after combined to allow to thicken slightly, spread evenly on the base layer and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate with the instant coffee and coconut oil, I did in a saucepan a low heat to avoid burning the chocolate. Spread evenly over the peanut butter layer and chill for 2 hours or until set. Then chop into squares and enjoy!⁠⁠
