Before I moved away from processed sugar and store-bought treats, Reese’s peanut butter cups used to be a weakness of mine. Now that I have learned more about making healthy treats in my own kitchen, especially healthy raw delights, I can still enjoy the taste of peanut butter and chocolate without the guilt.
No food processor is required to make these raw delights, and best of all, there are only four ingredients, unless you want to count a little dash of vanilla and a sprinkle of sea salt as ingredients. These wonderful and not-too-sweet chocolate and peanut butter treats keep well in the freezer for a good few days. They are actually rather filling, making them a perfect protein-packed light breakfast on the run or as a snack whenever the craving hits. I have a weakness for peanut butter, but if you wish, you can use almond or cashew butter instead. Using a fine dark chocolate is key for the recipe. Inferior chocolate just won’t do.
