These little beauties are quick and delicious and probably quite healthy 😉 They are not excessively sweet!
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup chopped dates
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoonish vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts, your choice of variety, I like mixed
1 cup desiccated coconut (toasted if you like)
1 cup rice crispies (I use rice cakes and cut them up, as the crispies mostly have added sugar and other things on, three rice cakes makes your cup)
Place your chopped dates in something that has a lid and soak them in just enough boiling water to cover, put on the lid ;-).
Toast your coconut if desired. Measure and mix dry ingredients.
Now drain the dates of most of the excess water.
Add your coconut oil and vanilla essence, whizz with a stick blender or in a blender.
Is your peanut butter salty? If not add a couple pinches of salt.
Stir in peanut butter.
Combine wet ingredients and dry ingredients.
Spread evenly in a sealable container or two.
Refrigerate for about 30 minutes till set.
Slice up, enjoy!
Alternative: instead of chopped nuts use 1/2 cup toasted sesame and 1/2cup sunflower seeds. Also increase the peanut butter and sweetener option to 1 cup each. As the seeds take more to coat.
You could try adding some chocolate drops of your choice…
