Layered Chocolate Slice
Decadent and satisfying, this chocolate slice will be your next favorite make-ahead treat for the week.
3/4 c nut butter (I used crunchy almond butter)
1/4 c maple syrup
1/2 c almond flour
1/4 c cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c date paste* 1/3 c nut butter
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
Combine all ingredients of first layer.
Spread out on a parchment-lined dish (size similar to 9x5).
Chill in fridge while you combine ingredients of layer 2.
Spread layer 2 over first layer.
Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave-safe dish and melt.
Pour over the dessert and sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.
Chill in fridge for a couple hours to set and then enjoy!
Store in the fridge.
*To make the date paste, add 5-6 pitted medjool dates to a small saucepan. Add 1-2 Tbsp of water and simmer until the dates are very tender/mushy. Mash with a fork until they begin to form a creamy paste.
