Do you have the desire to have something sweet that won’t make you feel guilty? Do you have one minute? Then you have time to whip up this treat. A great one for the kids too!


  • 6 tablespoons peanut butter*
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey*
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup cashews, crushed (I placed them in snap lock bag and crushed them with my rolling pin)


  1. Place all ingredients except for the cashews into a medium sized bowl and mix until well combined and looking deliciously chocolatey. Stir in the cashews. Pour the mixture into a silicon loaf tin. Place in the fridge to set.
  2. This slice only takes a couple of hours to set. However, the longer you leave it, the firmer it will become. I like it best the day after making.
  3. Store in the fridge as it will melt at room temperature.
  4. Enjoy knowing you are not feeding the kids or yourself nasty refined sugars.

*you can sub the peanut butter with almond butter if you prefer
*Optional: rice malt syrup if preferred
