Serves 20


2 cups fresh dates, pitted

1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 cup activated buckwheat (buckinis) or puffed brown rice/quinoa

1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts, roughly chopped (you can leave raw if you wish for 100% raw bar)

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

1 tbsp maple syrup

pinch sea salt


Place the dates, peanut butter and vanilla in food processor and blitz until mixture comes together to form a paste. Combine date mix, buckinis and 1/2 the peanuts in a bowl and mix to combine. Line a loaf tin (20x15cm or thereabouts) with greaseproof paper, spread mixture evenly into tin and place in freezer to set. Combine coconut oil, cacao powder, maple and sea salt in a separate bowl and whisk to combine. Pour chocolate mix over the set date mix, sprinkle with peanuts and place back in freezer to set for an hour. When ready, slice into small pieces and serve. Store in fridge or freezer up to 3 weeks.

    This looks amazing !! Do you have any suggestions on what I could replace the dates with to make it fructose friendly?

    Hi Jacqueline,

    Just made these and they are ABSOLUTELY fantastic, so yum! I was wondering if you had a preference of brand when buying your peanut butter.
