Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice
I found this delicious recipe at Detoxinista but changed it just a little. I used less honey. Even though it has wonderful properties in it honey does make your blood sugar sky rocket and really isn't all that good for you. Plus honey is just another sugar in a different form. So less is best.

I added some vanilla extract just because I love the vanilla taste with chocolate. I also used a mix of dark chocolate, I had Lindt 82% chocolate and dairy free milk chocolate which is delicious just because I had a bit of both. I think this gives it that extra dimension in flavour so I think it worked well.

This slice is also very light on the belly but I wouldn't be hoeing into it as it does have a few calories.

Unfortunately I burnt mine (see pic above) even though I cooked it for the recommended time so have altered it to 15-20 minutes.

Cook until golden brown. When you touch it in the middle it will seem raw but it settles and sets. So take it out at this stage. You don't want it firm to the touch otherwise it is probably burnt and overcooked like mine. Then you find the best pieces are in the middle hence the reason the middle pieces got eaten first!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice

Makes 16 pieces

1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used a mix of dark and dairy free milk chocolate)
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 180C/350F and grease a 20cm/8inch square pan with olive or coconut oil.

In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter, honey, egg, salt and baking soda until well combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the greased pan, and use a spatula to smooth the top.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown.

Let cool, then cut into squares and serve!
