These fudgy, nutty, brownie bars are far too easy to make, its dangerous. I was in desperate need of a sugar fix this afternoon and with nothing delicious at home I grabbed a few simple ingredients from the pantry and whipped up these bad boys in mere minutes. They certainly hit the spot, rich, decedent, peanut fudge brownies that are ready in less than 5 minutes. What more could you ask for in a sweet treat?
- 1 cup of medjool dates
- 3 tablespoons of cacao powder
- ¼ cup almond meal
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/3 cup peanut cacao spread (this is a good brand) or use your favourite natural peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons of peanuts
- 1 tablespoon of cacao nibs
Add the dates, cacao, almond meal, honey, peanut butter and cacao to a food processor, mix until all ingredients are combined and a fudgy dough is formed. Add peanuts and cacao nibs and mix to combine. Press the mixture into a small pan lined with baking paper. Place in the fridge until ready to serve. Slice into squares.
