Chocolate Fudge Slice
This is very rich and really chocolatey. With no processed sugar and quite a few seeds it is a fairly healthy treat but doesn’t lose out on taste. It is very quick to make and there is no baking involved, it just goes in the fridge to set. If you have a soft or smooth peanut butter you may need to add in extra cocoa powder, up to 15 grams.
6 tbsps agave nectar
6 oz (160g) peanut butter
2 oz (55g) sesame seeds
2 oz (55g) sunflower seeds
1 oz (30g) cocoa powder
1 oz (30g) desiccated coconut
1/2 oz (15g) sultanas or raisins
1. Soften the agave nectar and peanut butter in a saucepan over a very low heat, stirring continually. Remove from the heat and add seeds, cocoa powder and desiccated coconut, mixing well.
2. Lightly grease a small tin, fill it with the fudge mixture and smooth the top. Decorate with sultanas and press them into the fudge. Refrigerate until firm and store in the fridge until needed.
