- 80g peanut butter
- 30g raw cacao powder

- 250ml water
- 180g 70% dark chocolate or use Pulsin’s No Added Sugar Chocolate Drops! (link – https://www.pulsin.co.uk/no-added-sugar-chocolate-drops.html)
- 1/2 tbsp (7g) coconut oil
- Blend together all ingredients in a food processor.
- Place into a 9 inch loaf tin that has been lined with baking paper. Allow to set in the freezer for 2 hours.
- Slice into 8 or 16 bars…. I made 8 and coated them before slicing half when I realised how jumbo they were so I’d recommend creating 16!
- Melt chocolate with coconut oil in a large 2 litre jug with a wide base in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, heat for 30 seconds more; it should take 90 – 120 seconds total.
- One at a time place the bars into the melted chocolate.
- Coat and then remove with a large spoon. Transfer to a fork, tap off excess chocolate and return to a plate or tray lined with baking paper.
- Sprinkle with freeze dried raspberries and some puffed amaranth, or whatever your heart desires.
- Store in the fridge for up to two weeks or at room temperature for one week in a seal tight container. You can also freeze them for up to one month.
