I had originally called this easy chocolate peanut slice but my husband and taste tester in chief (and lover of all things chocolate-peanuty) proclaimed it tasted like hedgehog…..thus the name change.
- 2 cups desiccated coconut
- 1 cup peanuts (roasted unsalted)
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup dates (more if you like it sweeter) soaked in boiling water to cover (and soaking water).
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup sultanas
- chopped peanuts and dessicated coconut to decorate
Put peanuts and coconut in food processor. Blitz until starting to form into clumps.
Add oats and blitz well to grind.
Add cocoa to mix in.
Add dates and soaking water and vanilla and blitz until a crumbly dough is formed.
Add sultanas and quickly pulse to mix through.
Press into lined slice tin and decorate by pressing crushed peanuts and desiccated coconut into the top.
Firm in freezer for 2-3 hours then remove and slice into squares.
Store in freezer or fridge and eat from there.
