10 gr Pecans – 1 tablespoon
50 gr Coconut flakes – 2/3 cup

For The No Bake Peanut Butter Fudge

Let’s Make Us Some Super Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
Put on your timers’ darlings, because these heavenly rich peanut butter slices will be ready in a jiffy 🙂
First, place the pecans, coconut flakes and almonds into a food processor and blend until fine, then transfer to a bowl. Next, add the dates, pits removed, to the food processor and pulse until a smooth, paste like mixture forms. Add to your blended nuts and give it a good mix with your hands.
Line an 8 x 4 x 1/2-inch loaf pan (20 x 10 x 6 cm) with baking paper, and firmly press the base mixture down into your pan, until it looks even, then set aside while we make the filling.
For the filling, heat up a pot with about 1 inch (3 cm) of water on low heat.
In a heat proof, glass bowl, add the peanut butter, coconut oil and sweetener, and place on top of your pot, so that the water won’t touch the bowl. The steam from the boiling water is just enough to gently melt our mixture.
Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
Pour your heavenly rich peanut butter filling on top of your chilled base, gently tap the pan a few times on your counter top, to get rid of any unwanted air bubbles, and chill in the freezer for a few hours to set.
Once chilled, cut into slices, drizzle with some melted dark chocolate and dig in! 🙂
Store in the freezer, and when needed, take out and thaw for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
So, there you have it, let me know how yours turned out, I’d love to hear 🙂
