Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chill Time: 15 minutes (freezer) to 30 minutes (fridge)
Total Time: 25 to 40 minutes
Number of Servings: 30, 1 inch (~2.5 cm) squares
2-3/4 cups (345 grams) roasted unsalted peanuts
8 oz (227 grams) dates, pitted
2 tbsp (30 mL) avocado oil or coconut oil, melted
¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
2 to 3 tbsp (30 to 45 mL) dark chocolate chips, vegan if desired
Pour peanuts into a food processor and pulse until peanuts are crushed into small pieces. If you over pulse, it will start to become too smooth and peanut butter will start to form.
Add dates, oil and salt. Pulse until the peanut mixture combines and holds together. Transfer to a large bowl.
With a wooden spoon, stir in chocolate chips + press peanut mixture into squares of mould
Place mould in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving.
