Go nuts for chocolate with this one. I can tell you a little story about this slice. I nearly threw it out and abandoned ship. Luckily I thought I would keep it to get Bree to have a taste and to see if we could fix the recipe in some way. I am guessing on the day I made it I had either eaten too much sugar already or I just wasn't in the mood for something sweet. It tasted so sweet to me. forward a few days and I do the hard sell on Bree, 'Oh you're probably not going to like this at all, but let's see if we can fix it in any way'...

I cut it up, the taste test proceeds and she loves it. So I taste it, and I don't know...maybe I was hungrier or needed a salty sweet hit, but it is really yummy! I do think the flavours must has improved over the couple of days it lay languishing in the outside fridge to where I had banished it! I have tweaked it slightly, it needed more saltiness, so don't be shy. It is also gluten and grain free if that is something you worry about.

It is pretty simple to make, high in protein given the nuts and you could in fact use almond butter, or pistachio butter in place of the peanut butter and then top it with the correlating chopped nuts.


Peanut butter is rich in protein, healthy fats, and fiber, supporting muscle repair, heart health, and digestion. Its vitamins and minerals, like vitamin E and magnesium, promote immune function and bone strength. Consuming peanut butter in moderation can aid weight management and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
